  • Tiered Promos?

    Hi all, i've read the threads in the past on tiered promos not working. wondering though if you do a promo (not a coupon) and set up 2 different promos such as order total is $20-39.99, you save 10% and if order total is $40 or more you save 20%. Has anyone run one like that recently?

    We are running a 20 over 200.00, 30 over 250.00 or 50 over 400.00. Three coupons, all non-stackable. They only can/need to use one at a time. It's also a great way to not give away hundreds of dollars on orders that people would place anyway. We'ver run this several times without issue. Try it and test it out. :-)

      Yes, that's two different promotions, but the customer doesn't have to know that. Here's an example:

      The deal, which seems to be just one promotion : Save 10% for every $100 you spend, up to $40% off. ***

      The build, which is actually 4 separate promotions:

      Promo 1
      Name: "Save 10% for every $100!"
      Spend: $100 - $199.99
      Apply discount of: 10%
      Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.

      Promo 2
      Name: "Save 10% for every $100!"
      Spend: $200 - $299.99
      Apply discount of: 20%
      Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.

      Promo 3
      Name: "Save 10% for every $100!"
      Spend: $300 - $399.99
      Apply discount of: 30%
      Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.

      Promo 4
      Name: "Save 10% for every $100!"
      Spend: $400 - $499.99
      Apply discount of: 40%
      Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.

      *** You want to word this as I did, in terms of percent, not dollars. Otherwise, saying "up to $400" will be interpreted as meaning that there is no discount incentive for spending more than $400.00.

        The way we do our is:

        Promo 1
        Name: "Save 20.00 on oorders of 200.00 or more."
        Spend: Min $100 - (no max)
        Apply discount of:
        $20.00
        Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.
        Coupon code: 20bucks

        Promo 2
        Name: "Save 30.00 on oorders of 250.00 or more."
        Spend: Min $250.00 - (no max)
        Apply discount of: $30.00
        Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.
        Coupon code: 30bucks

        Promo 1
        Name: "Save 20.00 on oorders of 200.00 or more."
        Spend: Min $100 - (no max)
        Apply discount of :
        $20.00
        Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.
        Coupon code: 20bucks

        Promo 3
        Name: "Save 50.00 on oorders of 400.00 or more."
        Spend: Min $400.00 - (no max)
        Apply discount of: $30.00
        Non-stacking; can't be used with other promos.
        Coupon code: 30bucks

        I like this way for a couple of reasons compared to the many other promos we run.

        1) If you put a max amount on the promo, the coupon will not work if the order goes over the set limit. I don;t see a reason to limit it. If they use the next higher coupon, great. If not, that's fine to. Some people would rather use a smaller couopnthan try to find the next one. Who am I to stop them.

        2) The set dollar amount as opposed to the percentage saves us a lot of money. Most of our customers seem to respond as well if not better to the dollar amount rather than a percentage. Don;t know the pyscology of it but it seems to be the case most often.

        We've given away a LOT of money that we probabltdidn;t have to with percentage coupons.

        Just my $0.02 :-)

          Hmm. We have a terminology problem. I see that you wrote:
          "...if you do a promo (not a coupon)..."


          but now you write:
          "...you put a max amount on the promo, the coupon will not work..."


          So I suppose I'm not as clear on what's going on as I'd need to be in order to provide the best feedback. The best I can do is explain the terms in this context as I understand them:

          Coupon - discount or action that requires customer input.
          Promotion - discount or action that is automatic, requiring no input.

          Either may be dependent on other criteria. But yes, I agree that it's unwise to make potential buyers scurry around for coupons and potentially use the wrong one.

            Dean, You actually responded to what the op asked for. I'm the one who added the coupon part. I like how you did the auto promo. I might have to try to run one of those. Since it's automatic for all shoppers, how would you best advertise it.On the website somewhere I would assume.
