19. Provide the discount value.

20. Select the discount type from the dropdown list.

The Percentage option will provide a percentage off the product price.

If the Fixed Price option is selected then the products will be discounted by the value we set in the Discount text field. For example if the Discount value is set to 10 and the product costs $25 then the final (discounted) product price will be $25(product price) - $10 ( the fixed price).

If the Absolute option is selected then the final product price will become the value we set in the Discount text filed. For example if the product cots $25 and the value we set in the Discount text files is 10 then the final (discounted) price will become $10.

 

21. Set the priority for this discount. Discounts with higher priority will be processed first.

22. Checkmark if no other discounts should be applied after this one.

23. This sets how many items will be discounted per order. If the value is set to 0 then there is no limit.
