Create Offer

Our app is renowned for its ease of use, allowing you to set up even the most intricate gift offers tailored to your needs.

1. Main Condition 

Let’s start with 4 main conditions that BOGOS equips you to set up your promotions easily.

Cart value condition: 

This condition allows you to set up rewards for customer based on a certain amount of their spending. You can set the minimum and maximum cart values.

E.g: Spend $100 to get gifts.

        Spend $199-299 in the collection A to get gifts.

This condition can apply to:

  • Any products: Customers are eligible for gifts if they meet the minimum (and maximum) spend, regardless of what they add to their cart.
  • All except selected products: Most items qualify, but you can exclude specific products, such as high-cost or high-demand ones, from the promotion.
  • All except selected types/vendors/collections: Most products are included, except for those in specific categories.
  • Only selected products: Customers receive gifts only when purchasing from a special list of selected products, which is ideal for promoting slow-moving or new items.
  • In selected types/vendors/collections: This offer is exclusive to specific categories, allowing targeted sales promotions.

When you choose this option, customers can receive gifts based on the number of products they decide to purchase – a flexible way to reward them.

E.g: Buy 3 products to get gifts
Buy 1 to 5 products from vendor A to get gifts.

Expert tip: You can merge Cart value and Cart quantity conditions for a more tailored and impactful gift offer.

Specific product condition:

This condition is ideal if you’d like to offer a gift or discounted product to customers who purchase specific products or collections.

E.g: Buy product X to get gift Y.

You can also choose:

  • Multiply gifts with a number of products
    E.g: Buy product A to get gift B, buy 2A get 2B, buy 3A get 3B.
  • The gift can have the same variants (track by variant) or the same products (track by product) as the selected items.

Advanced Rules

BOGOS also offers advanced rules for more intricate gift setups, allowing Shopify merchants to tailor their promotions precisely and flexibly.

1. Specific URL

You can generate a unique URL for your gift offers to track and reward customers who access your store through specific channels.

E.g: You can assign unique URLs to your offers for different marketing channels, like email campaigns, social media posts, or affiliate links. This allows you to reward customers who discover you through those specific channels.

2. Location-based

Customers from selected countries receive gifts, while those from excluded countries do not see the offer, ensuring that promotions are relevant to the intended audience.

E.g: If you’re running a promotion targeting customers in the US, those accessing your store from the US will see the offer prominently displayed. 

3. Order History

Customers qualify for gifts based on their order history.

E.g: If you’ve set a threshold for total spend at $200, customers who have spent $200 or more will automatically receive the gift offer. 

4. Customer Tags

Customers with specific tags receive gifts upon login. You can exclude customers with certain tags from receiving the offer, ensuring that promotions target the right audience segments.

E.g: Tag customers who sign up with their emails to collect data or those who are part of a loyalty program to offer gifts.
