Launch a Product Discount Campaign
How to add a discount campaign to your ShopRoller eStore!
A discount campaign is a great way to get more customers pushing products to their shopping cart. It basically means to set a lower price for the products, categories, brands, and/or customers that you want, for a limited amount of time.

How to add Campaigns to Matrix Products
Matrix Products are those with variations such as colour and size (eg. 1 red large shirt, 2 blue small shirts).
When selecting products with variations to add for your Discount Campaign, you need to select the individual combinations - not the matrix product itself. What's the difference?
Matrix product: The core product, which offers multiple combinations/ variations (eg. Nike T-Shirt).
Combination product: The actual product, which is a specific, individual, unique combination of the matrix product (eg. Blue Nike T-Shirt, Red Nike T-Shirt).
In terms of matrix products, the discount campaign will only be applied to combination products.
Add combination products to your discount campaign either searching by name or product code.
Combination codes are generated by matrix product codes. For example if matrix is 12345, then default variants are 12345-1, 12345-2 etc. So by searching 12345, you will reveal both matrix and combination products.
What is the difference between "Discount Campaigns" and "Discount Pricing Rules"?
| Discount Pricing Rules
Found: "Catalog > Product card > Discount without VAT"
| Discount Campaign
Found: "Discount > Campaigns > Add new"
What happens if I add both a Discount Campaign and Discount Pricing Rules?
If you were to add a discount campaign targeted towards a particular customer group, and then add discount pricing in product cards, then you have a situation where everybody gets discounts on some products (added by the product card), but only customers in particular customer group would receive the discounts as added in the Discount Campaign.
