Prestashop: How to set up Buy 1 item, Get 1 free

You may want to run a promotion on your Prestashop site that gifts the customer a free item if they buy so many items from your shop. For example, you may run a chocolate shop and may wish to encourage people to buy more boxes. To do so, you may run a promtion such as 'Buy 5 boxes and get 1 free'. This is easy enough to set up in your Prestashop store. To do so, follow the below steps.

Step 1

Log in to your Prestashop dashboard.

Navigate to 'Price Rules' then click on 'Cart Rules'.

Cart Rules

Step 2

Once the page has loaded, click the + symbol at the top right of the page.


Type a name for your promotion in the 'Name' box. The name of the promotion will be displayed on the customer's invoice. You may also wish to add a description. The customer will not see this but it may be worth adding one to remind you of the promotion's details in the future.

After you have done this, click 'Save and Stay' in the bottom right corner.

Promotion Name

Step 3

Click on the 'Conditions' tab


Set the dates for how long you want the promotion to last. You can do this by clicking on the dates in the calendar fields. A calendar will pop up and you need to click on the desired date to set the time limits for the promotion. Click the 'Done' button at the bottom of the pop up calendar once you have chosen your date.


Next, fill in the 'Total Available' section. This refers to how many customers can use the promotion so you may want to enter a fairly high number.

Then fill in the 'Total available for each user' field. This lets you limit the amount of times each individual customer can use the promotion.

Step 4

Next, click on the 'Product Selection' checkbox. Then click on the 'Product Selection' button.

Product selection

In the box where it says 'The cart must contain at least 'x' amount of products matching the following rules', you need to enter the number of products that a customer needs to buy before they are eligible for the promotion.

Where it says 'Add a rule concerning', click on the dropdown, select 'Products' and then click the 'Add' button.

Once you have done this, click the 'choose' button.

Choose product

A box will pop up. In the 'Unselected' section, you will see a list of your products. Click on the relevant product and then click 'Add'. Click the 'X' symbol in the top right corner once you have added your product.

Add product

Click 'Save and Stay'.

Step 5

Click on the 'Actions' Tab.


Once the page has loaded, click 'Yes' on 'Send a free gift' and then click on 'Search a product' search bar and type in the product you would like to giveaway as a free gift. A 'Matching Products' section will appear with the product you have typed in to the search bar. Check that it is the correct product and click the 'Save and Stay' button in the bottom right.

Free Gift

Now go to your live store and test the promotion.

So for example, if you add 5 products to your cart or which ever amount is applicable and then go to the checkout, the free item should now show in the checkout as a 'Free Gift'.
