Let’s have more scenarios.
Scenario – mix and match with flexible quantity setup
Out of the box, Dynamics Retail Discount Engine supports mix and match with fixed quantity setup. For example, buy one Xbox console, get 2 games 20% off. But you also want to have mix and match with flexible quantity setup, for example, buy a phone, get 20% off of all its accessories, or get $10 off total of all its accessories.
Let’s distill it a bit more. Essentially, we have two line groups of products:
- Qualifying line group. In this example, a phone.
- Application line group. In this example, the phone’s accessories.
There is a (small) chance that we may add support out of the box in the future.
Scenario – quantity discount with tiered application
Out of the box, Dynamics Retail Discount Engine supports quantity discount with unified application. For example, get 20% off if you get 4+ keyboards. If you buy 4+ keyboards, you would get 20% off for all the keyboards.
Quantity discount with tiered application is different, in the same example above, if you buy 4+ keyboards, first three are not discounted, and additional ones get 20% off.
In summary, for both scenarios, we are talking about new discount types.
