Abraka Posted December 14, 2013 Share Posted December 14, 2013 Hello everybody, my problem is the overburdening method of discount rule creation at several parameters. Is there any faster way (modules, etc.) to create really lot of rules? Is it possible to prevent the accumulation of discounts? Here is the exact job I need to do at a bookstore: Discount groups: 1. guests and normal members: 0% basic 2. institutes: 10% basic 3. club members: 20% basic Discount parameter one: every year of publishing means n*10% discount: 1. 2013-2012: 10% 2. 2011-2010: 20% and so on till the maximum 50% (it means 5 different types). But the 2. and 3. group (institutes/club members) basic discount shall NOT to add to these discounts, which means every group shall get the same (or if the basic is higher than that) discount percentage (i.e. if a book was published in 2011 it gives 20% discount to all three groups, and the club members don't get a total 40%!)The main problem starts here: Discount parameter two: not every, just some book categories are discounted (total 8) Discount parameter three: not every, just some exact publishers are discounted (total 10). So, now I would had to create 5*8*10 (every goup except the institutes and club members) + 4*8*10 (institutes) + 3*8*10 (club members) discount rule, which is insane and impossible to create manually without fails in an acceptable time.Because it means 400 + 320 + 240 = 960 different discount rules!It's easier to give discount item by item, which is unacceptable because a massive amount of books.So have you any advise how to solve it?I would love to have a simple way:In one discount rule the AND and OR function together HELP please!
