Creating a Catalog Sale Rule

Creating a Sale for Specific SKUs


There's a lot more to learn!

Promotions are highly flexible! This is only one example of what you can do with Promotions in Zoey. Make sure to read the section on Catalog Sales for more information.

What is the difference between a Sale and a Discount?

SaleAn item on sale has its original price with a strikethrough and displays the sale price. Running a sale is to lower the price of certain items, rather than to give a discount.
DiscountThe discount amount is not displayed on the product or category pages. A discount will apply to the product(s) during checkout. They might also require a coupon code.

Changing how the Sale price is displayed

  • You can configure how a Sale prices are displayed in Web Settings > Product Settings > Catalog Pricing. You can toggle whether to only display the final price.

This How To will guide you in creating a Sale Rule which will apply to a range of SKUs. The products will be selected through the import of a comma delimited list. We will also change the settings to only display the final price.

Creating your Sale

Please refer to Catalog Sales for more complete information on Promotions. In this article we will be focusing on setting up one Sale as an example.

  1. Navigate to Promotions > Sales

  2. Begin creating your new Sale

  3. Within the Sale Information you can name your Sale, give it a description, mark its status (active / inactive), choose to apply the sale to specific Customer Groups, and set the date range of the sale.

    1. Any customer groups included here would have access to the sale price if conditions are met.
  4. Now we will set the conditions for this sale to be applied to your products.

    1. In this example we will enter the SKUs which should be discounted. But there are many other conditions which can be used to apply your sale selectively.
  5. After selecting SKU, click on "is (singular)" and change it to "is one of (plural)". This ensures the sale will apply on any of the SKUs we list.

  6. Click on the three dots (...) to add in your SKUs.

  7. You can enter the SKUs here (comma delimited) to add these items to the sale. Click the green checkmark to confirm.

    1. You can also navigate through your product list and select products to be included manually. Pasting in the SKU values is preferred for large promotions.
    2. You can use different conditions to customize your Sale. Read through the options and how they can be used: [](Sale Conditions)
  8. We can now fill in the Actions section. The action will occur when items within an order meet our Conditions.

    1. In the Apply field, select one of the following options:

      By Percentage of the Original PriceSubtracts the discount amount from the original product price. (Example $10 is the original price, 10% off is $1, shows the sales price of $9)
      By Fixed AmountDiscounts the item by subtracting a fixed amount from the original price.
      To Percentage of the Original PriceDiscounts the item by defining the final price based on a percentage. (Example: $10 is the original price, 10% to the price is $9, displays a sales price of $1).
      To Fixed AmountDiscounts the item by defining the final price to a fixed amount.
    2. Discount Amount - Enter a numeric value only, such as 10 for 10%.

    3. Enable Discount to Subproducts - Yes will allow you to apply the rule to the variations (child products) of your configurable products.

    4. Stop Further Rules Processing
      Yes: Stops processing other rules (Only the sale with the highest priority will be shown)
      No: Other rules continue to be processed (Additional sales can be compounded)


We highly recommend testing the sale with each product!
