Catalog price rules can be used to offer products to buyers at a discounted price, based on a set of defined conditions. Catalog price rules do not use coupon codes, because they are triggered before a product is placed into the shopping cart.
For example, you can define and set the conditions for a price rule that when met, automatically display products with a special or promotional price. Defined rule properties might include customer groups, product categories, a discount amount or percentage, product color, product size, or just about any product attribute set up in your store. You can set start and end dates for a price rule that automatically start and stop a promotion on the dates you define in the rule. The properties of a saved rule can be updated or modified as needed.
In Magento Commerce, you can also link a defined rule to a dynamic block to help promote the event or product in your store.
For recurring promotions in Magento Open Source, you can manually set a saved rule to Active or Inactive status each time you want to run the promotion.
If you have many rules created, you can filter the list by using the filter options at the top of each column. Complete your filter options and click Search to narrow your list. To clear all filter options and display the complete list, click Reset Filter.
