Using the Promotion Base List

When you create a new Catalog, a new Promotion Base List is automatically created. You cannot control the Eligibility or add any Price Modifiers for a Promotion Base List. You can only use it to add specific entries that you want to target with a promotional price.

To use the Promotion Base List,

  1. Open the Global Menu (Applications Menu icon) and go to CommerceCatalogs.

    Click on Catalogs and create a new catalog for your products.

  2. Click Add (Add icon) and enter the following information.

    Name: Test Catalog

    Default Catalog Language: English (United States)

    Currency: US Dollar

    Enter a name, default catalog language, and currency for the new catalog.

  3. Click Submit.

This creates a new Catalog and a new Promotion Base List. To view this, open the Global Menu (Applications Menu icon) and click on CommercePromotions. You should see a new entry as Test Catalog Base Promotion.

Adding Entries

The Promotion Base List automatically adds all products in the corresponding catalog as entries. To target a specific SKU in the Catalog,

  1. Search for an SKU in the Entries section and click on it.

  2. You can enter a Promotion Price, expiration date, and configure bulk or tiered pricing for the SKU.

    You can enter a Promotion Price, expiration date, and configure bulk or tiered pricing for the SKU.

  3. Click Save.

You can also use the Override Discount toggle to give the promotion price precedence over any active Discounts. See the comparison between a promotion overriding a 20% discount and without it.

You can use the Override Discount toggle in the Promotion's configuration to override any active discounts.

Note

Another way to target an SKU with a promotion price is by opening the Global Menu (Applications Menu icon) and going to CommerceProducts. Find and select the product and click the SKUs tab. Select the SKU you want to target and set a Promotion Price for it. Click Publish. This sets the price of the SKU in the Base Promotion List. Prior to Liferay DXP 7.4 U42/GA42, Promotion Price was called Sale Price.
