Shopping Cart Price Rules

The user can create a Shopping cart price rule to apply discounts on orders at the checkout level, based on the defined conditions. The discounts are applied automatically when the conditions are satisfied, or when the front-end user enters a valid coupon code. When the rules are applied, the discount appears on the shopping cart page under the subtotal.

After creating the price rules, the user can use it as per the requirement by changing its status and date range.
