Introduction

Premium items is a marketing tool to generate more turnover by encouraging your customer to buy more products to get items for free depending on their cart amount.

The availability of premium items is not automatically checked. If items are offered as a bonus, always make sure that you have sufficient products in stock.

Requirements

If you want to use premium items, you should take care of the following requirements to avoid problems:

  • Premium items have to be assigned to an active category in the regarding shop
  • If your premium item is a variant item, the user can select the variant himself, no matter what the price is.
  • You have to turn on the setting "Settings > Basic settings > Storefront > Checkout > Show premium items" to display the premium items in the checkout.
