What Is A Rule?

A Rule is defined by Conditions and Effects that get evaluated by our powerful Promotion Engine. If the Conditions are successfully validated, the Effects defined in your campaign rule are triggered immediately.

Marketers are given full flexibility for choosing from a series of expressions to create their unique promotional campaigns, whatever their use case. Rules may use both aggregated data and data from the current request to make their decisions. 



Your rule must have Conditions and Effects before you save a rule and activate your promotional campaign. This typically follows the logic "If someone does THIS, then execute THAT effect".

Here are some examples: 
  • Conditions: If a customer enters a valid coupon code, If a customer registers, If a customer has billing address X, If a customer puts X€ in their basket, etc. 
  • Effects: Set a discount of X%, Discount on SKU123, Give free shipping, Trigger Email with Coupon, Update customer profile, Give Free product, etc. 
  • See more examples in Campaign Ideas.
