  1. Go to the discount rules page (accessible via Marketing > Discount rules in the left menu).

  2. Click the title of the discount rule you want to edit. This page displays the discount rule settings.

  3. Under DISCOUNT RULE, set the following:

    • Title – here you can optionally change the name of the discount rule. This is the name you entered when creating the discount rule.

    • Discount type – the discount type you selected when creating the discount rule. The type CANNOT be changed. If you want to change this, you need to create a new discount rule

    • Enable discount rule – with this you enable the relevant discount rule and it will immediately apply in your webshop.

    • Stop after discount rule (enabled by default) – this setting determines what Lightspeed eCom does when rules overlap. For more information, see Explanation of the Stop after discount rule setting.

    • Apply discount before tax settlement (enabled by default) – This setting is only available when prices are displayed exclusive of tax (B2B or in US/Canada). Specifies whether the discount amount or percentage will be applied to the original sales price (excluding VAT), or after taxes have been applied. By default, the discount is applied before the VAT is applied.

  4. Under CONFIGURATION, set the following:

    1. At Buy from selected categories you enter the total number of products from the selected category(ies) to receive a discount on the lowest-priced product.

    2. At Discount on the lowest-priced product you enter the discount percentage that is applied to the lowest-priced product.



    • This discount rule applies to individual products (without variants) and products with variants (matrices and product sets). If a customer orders two exactly the same variants, this counts as one product and the discount rule is not activated.

    • If this discount rule is enabled multiple times, the discount will be applied again. If customers order more products than the entered quantity in the same order, the discount rule will not be applied twice. For example, if you've set customers to buy five products to get a discount and they order ten, the discount will only be applied once.

    • A message will be displayed on the product page of the products in the chosen category(ies) as an advertisement for this offer to your customers.

  5. Under CATEGORIES, select at least one category to which the discount rule applies. If you don't select a category, the discount rule will never be activated.

  6. Under USE and DATA, configure the following general settings:

    • Usage limit – indicate here how often the discount rule can be applied.

    • Number of times used - the "times used" counter keeps track of how often (to date) the code has been used. You can reset it by clicking on Reset.

    • Select a period – set here a period with start and end dates in which the discount rule applies. The time period expires on the selected date at 11:59PM (23:59). Click herefor more information on how to sync discount expirations.

  7. Click Save when you have finished configuring your discount rule.
