Pro Buy X, Get Y

The Buy X, Get Y module lets you offer a discount on product Y when a customer buys product X in a pre-defined quantity.

You can create both percentage-based and fixed discounts.

Merchant Pro allows you to set up your ‘Buy X, Get Y’ offers on a per-product basis and add as many offers to each product as you want.

In the screenshot below, you can see an example of a percentage-based offer on a WooCommerce product page:

Once the customer clicks the Add To Cart button, the entire bundle (including the four products) appears on the Cart page.

As you can see below, Merchant Pro applies the discount to the second product:

You can also use the Buy X, Get Y module to create a Buy One, Get One Free type of offer by setting the discount value to 100%:
