How can I configure a 'cheapest item for free' discount for a manual bundle?
By default, the total price of the Frequently Bought Together items is the same price as if they were purchased separately.
However, if you want to encourage your customers to buy a particular bundle, you can configure different types of automatic discounts, including a 'cheapest item for free' discount, to be applied to a manual bundle.
In order to configure it, just go to the app preferences page and look for the 'Manual bundles' section:
Then, look for the manual bundle to which you want to apply a discount, and click on 'See bundle':
Once inside, check the 'Add a discount for this bundle' option and select the 'Cheapest item for free' discount type:
The discounted amount won't be displayed on the shopping cart page (this is a Shopify limitation). To overcome that, you can configure a message that will be displayed on the cart page when a discount is applied. You can configure the message, its position and styling, in the 'Visual preferences' section. For more information, review the related document 'Why are discounts not displayed in the shopping cart?'.
The Shopify Discount system is quite limited. For example, no more than one discount can be applied to a single order. On the other hand, the Shopify Platform does not enforce all discount constraints regarding the products in the order. We advise you to review the related document 'Important implications about discounts' before enabling discounts in your store.
