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,
Open the Global Menu () and go to Commerce → Catalogs.
Click Add () and enter the following information.
Name: Test Catalog
Default Catalog Language: English (United States)
Currency: US Dollar
This creates a new Catalog and a new Promotion Base List. To view this, open the Global Menu () and click on Commerce → Promotions. You should see a new entry as Test Catalog Base Promotion.
The Promotion Base List automatically adds all products in the corresponding catalog as entries. To target a specific SKU in the Catalog,
Search for an SKU in the Entries section and click on it.
You can enter a Promotion Price, expiration date, and configure bulk or tiered pricing for the SKU.
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.
Another way to target an SKU with a promotion price is by opening the Global Menu () and going to Commerce → Products. 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.
