Fooman Advanced Promotions
Advanced promotions made easy
Go beyond the standard Magento promotion options - set up advanced promotions that either aren't possible in standard Magento, or require combining multiple complex rules to work.
Set up complex promotions using a single rule. Plus, Fooman Advanced Promotions offers easy rule management via a new "Action" tab on the promotion overview screen.
Leave promotion restrictions behind!
Adds 13 new conditions, promotion types and actions to mix and match with Magento's standard promotion options. Create unique promotions that stand out from the crowd to maximise customer spend and loyalty.
Drive high margin transactions by running promotions on items where you have the margin to discount. Restrict discounts to items of a specific colour, fabric or brand to shift old or surplus stock before it loses value.
Multiply promotions automatically
Promotions can automatically multiply using a single rule. A buy 2, get 1 free deal can automatically become a buy 4, get 2 free deal, or a buy 6, get 3 free deal (unless you choose to limit deals).
This smart feature avoids Magento's multiplier loophole – now you don't need to set up dozens of complicated rules to avoid unknowingly giving away too much.
Automatically add free products to cart
Simple products defined by a SKU (with no required options) can be automatically added to the cart, if you use Magento's one page checkout.
A notification message will be displayed to advise the customer of the deal.
Promotion links with automatic discounts
Send your customers a link to purchase a product, and the discount or free item will be automatically applied at checkout. No need for the customer to quote the coupon code - Google Analytics will track the rest.
This makes it easier for your customers to buy, and allows you to target different customer groups more easily.

Frequently Asked Questions
I don't see the promotion that I want to run listed in the extension description. Can Fooman Advanced Promotions run it?
We've tried to cover all the main promotion types possible in the extension description - but there's always a creative genius out there who will dream up new eye catching promotions. Please get in touch to check whether your promotion is possible.
Can free items be automatically added to the cart?
Yes, if the free item is a simple product with no required options, and you are running Magento's default one page checkout. For products with required options, advanced rules can be set up which enable the customer to place their free item in the cart themselves (eg. a red t-shirt in size small).
Can I create promotions using catalog price rules?
Fooman Advanced Promotions deals with shopping cart price rules only, not catalog price rules.
Will anything on the product page be changed to inform customers about promotions?
Fooman Advanced Promotions doesn't make any changes on product pages (eg. banners, promotional prices, or promotion related customer communications).
Can I restrict promotions to particular customer groups?
Not currently. Check out our Fooman Surcharge extension, which allows you to apply discounts and surcharges based on customer group.
Can I run Fooman Advanced Promotions together with other Magento extensions which add new promotion types?
This is not recommended.
Can I use the extension with Magento Enterprise?
Currently there is no officially supported Enterprise version. Other customers have successfully used the community edition with Magento Enterprise - it's just that this has not yet been fully tested by us, and any Enterprise specific features won't be supported.
Rest assured that our extensions include a 30 day money back guarantee, so feel free to test out the extension on your own development site. If it doesn't work as intended, just let us know and we will refund your purchase.
Can I create my own condition, promotion type or action?
Only those conditions, promotion types and actions listed shown in the User Manual are possible - it's not currently possible to add your own.
Do I need to follow the sample rule setups shown in the User Manual?
No, these are only examples to showcase the most popular advanced promotion setups. You can create your own rules using any combination of the conditions, promotion types and actions shown in the User Manual.
Is Advanced Promotions multi store capable?
Advanced Promotions is fully multi store capable - simply configure different settings for each store set up.
Are there any known conflicts between Advanced Promotions and other Magento extensions?
There are no known conflicts.
