Grouped Product Promotions

Postby petrofy » Sun Apr 26, 2015 2:30 am


I've implemented your Grouped Product Promotions extension and have a question about the shopping cart behavior.

When a bundled promotion is displayed because one of the products is in the cart, if a customer adds the bundle to the cart, the original single item remains. Keeping both the original product and adding the bundle creates an extra item when the customer really just wanted to upgrade to the bundle. Do you have a solution available for this?

Thank you,

Hi Frank,

Let's say there are 3 simple products within a promoset. When you add the promoset to the cart the simple products are added separately, i.e. there'll be 3 product instances in the cart. This is how grouped products are handled by Magento. We change nothing here.
The extension modifies the cart display only, not changing what's in the cart. It tries to group available products in the cart into promosets, making the display like {product1}+{product2}+{product3}.
If there was product1 in the cart its quantity remains after adding whole promoset. So you see {promoset} + previously added {product1}.
When customer opens product1 they see all promosets associated with the product, like on our demo here - ... black.html
The customer decides themselves if they want to add a single product or the entire promoset to the cart. All is shown on the same page.

Best regards,
