Offer management

Introduction

Antavo’s Offer management allows you to deliver pre-purchase incentives to selected customers online and offline as well. You can create cart or item discounts in the Antavo Backoffice so that we can provide you the necessary offer information that your customers can choose right at the checkout.
Antavo can enable the redemption of offers by giving you the list of applicable offers on a cart, but you need to implement the solution in your checkout process that reduces the actual basket value based on the settings of an applicable offer.

Setting up a new offer

You can find the configuration page of the Offers module by clicking on the Price tag icon in the sidebar. You’ll first find the list of offers that you’ve already set up.

  • Click on the ‘Create new offer’ button on the Offer management sidebar

Saving and activating an offer

Once you have entered all the information required for the offer, save your settings using the ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the setup page. First the offer will be saved as ‘inactive’, which means the offer will not be forwarded by the Offers API and will appear only in the list of offers in the Offer management configuration.

After you have saved your new offer, you can activate it right away using the ‘Set active’ button on the upper right-hand side of the offer setup page and confirm the activation in the dialog that subsequently appears.
