Adds a sales rule action to add a product to cart. Can be used to create sales rules to add gifts to cart.
An extension that allows configuring sales rules to add free products to cart. This is the Magento 2 version of the same extension that can be found here. The development and the function of the original Magento1 extension is described in the following two websites: - http://www.code4business.de/make-a-gift-magento-warenkorbpreisregeln-um-geschenke-erweitern/ - http://www.webguys.de/magento/turchen-21-kostenlose-produkte-uber-warenkorb-preisregeln/
Generally the last full release -1 version is tested and made to work. Older versions are not actively supported.
The extension only supports simple and virtual product types, other types or custom options are not supported. The reason is that other product types need additional information that can only be added with IDs. This leads to a way more complicated module; we want to keep this module clean and easy.
Go to the Magento 2 root directory and run the following commands in the shell:
composer require code4business/freeproduct2 bin/magento module:enable C4B_FreeProduct bin/magento setup:upgrade
Sales rules for carts are configured in Marketing->Cart Price Rules:
- In the Actions tab, the Apply field should be set to Add a Gift - Gift SKU: Product that will be added. Only simple and virtual products without (required) custom options are supported. Multiple comma-separated SKUs can be specified - Discount Amount: The qty of added gifts
- The gift item is added once for the whole cart
Action Add a Gift (for each cart item) works similarly but will add the gift item for each product in cart. The qty of said product is also taken into consideration.
This action usually needs conditions to match only specific items (Apply the rule only to cart items matching the following conditions).
