First, you will decide where you would like your coupon to be active and also pick a name for the code. Next, you will select BOGO as your coupon type. Once selected, you will see that you have a new field called Coupon Applies To. From this dropdown, you will decide if you want your BOGO coupon to apply to a Specific Product, Products in the same Collection, or Any Product.

First, let's make a BOGO that includes any product. After selecting this, we will need to continue customizing the coupon. 

Enter your Discount Amount. This is a whole number percentage. If the sale is for a buy one get one free, then you would enter 100 for 100%.

Enter the rest of the information as you would for any coupon and click Add Coupon.

The Coupons page will show what was configured for each BOGO Coupon.

As you can see, when I applied the coupon code, the lowest-priced item was discounted 40%. 

If you select Specific Product, you must select the product the coupon will apply to. You can search by product name or SKU.

With BOGO coupons, the cheapest item always gets the discount.

  • If a customer purchases four items meeting the BOGO requirements and the prices are $30, $25, $15 and $10, the customer would have discounts applied to the $15 and $10 items.

  • If a customer purchase three items meeting the BOGO requirements and the prices were $30, $25, $15, the customer would get discounts applied to the $15 item.

    You can purchase items that don’t meet the coupon requirements with items that do meet the requirements, and discounts are only applied to those that meet the requirements. 

    • Coupons do not apply to Split Pay or Gift Cards.
    • You cannot create a BOGO coupon for a Split Pay item or a Gift Card.
    • You can purchase Gift Cards in the same cart as other items. It will not impact the discount.

    If you are a Shopify user and sync your coupons from Shopify, we do not support  Shopify BOGO coupons. You will need to create BOGO coupons in CommentSold.

    That's it! If you have any questions, please come see us in chat support! Let's start making some coupons!
