Use give-aways to generate more revenue in your plentyShop by motivating your customers to buy more items and more frequently. The basic idea is simple: You offer customers a free, give-away item if they spend a certain amount of money in your store. Instead of adding these give-aways to each order manually, you can use an event procedure to automate this process.

This video offers you an introduction to the topic:

Adding give-aways to an order

You can also add promotional items that aren’t sold in your plentyShop. To do so, set the variation to invisible and then assign it to an invisible category, i.e. a category that is not activated for the plentyShop.

  1. Go to Setup » Orders » Events.

  2. Click on Add event procedure ().
    → The Create new event procedure window opens.

  3. Enter a distinct Name for the event procedure.

  4. Select the Event according to Table 1.

Tip: Bonus item scale

Use more than one event procedure to offer a bonus item scale. This allows you to offer different variations depending on the value of items customers buy. In the first event procedure, for example set the item value filter to >= 100.00 GBP and < 200.00 GBP. In the second event procedure, set an item value filter of >= 200 GBP and select a different, more attractive variation.
