The Rules module allows site administrators to create actions that are automatically triggered by various events when certain conditions are met.
Rules are made up of 3 parts:
There are rules set up on your IndieCommerce website by default, two you may be familiar with are:
There are a few other rules set up by default on your site, which you may review by navigating to Configuration > Workflow > Rules.
Along with the default rules, you can create your own custom rules. Below, we have provided some common examples:
Navigate to: Configuration > Workflow > Rules
DISPLAY A MESSAGE ON THE SITE
In this example, we create a rule that displays a message to customers who select ‘In-Store Pickup’.
Customers who have selected ‘In-store Pickup’ and have completed checkout, should now see this message.
APPLY A COUPON AUTOMATICALLY
In this example, we create a rule that applies a coupon automatically for orders of $25 or more. A coupon will need to be created first, if you’re not familiar with creating coupons review ‘Discount Coupons’ - Scenario 2 for instructions.
Customers who place an order totaling $25 or more should now receive $10 off automatically.
In this example, we create a rule that automatically redirects a user back to a ‘Create’ page after new content has been saved.
Users who create and save a new event should automatically be redirected to the Create event page again.
CONDITIONS FOR SHIPPING QUOTES
In this example, we create a condition that allows a free shipping option to appear, when certain conditions are met.
Navigate to: Store > Configuration > Shipping Quotes
Now that you have created your shipping option you need to add the condition to only allow it to appear when the conditions are met.
Customers who meet the set conditions should be offered free shipping. We recommend you go through the checkout process to confirm.
NOTE: We recommend placing the FREE shipping option first in the list of choices so that when it is offered it appears as the first option to customers.
CONDITIONS FOR PAYMENT METHODS
In this example, we create a condition that prevents customers who are purchasing ‘Event Tickets’ from opting to ‘Pay At Store’
Navigate to: Store > Configuration > Payment Methods
Customers who now purchase an ‘Event Ticket’ should not have the option of ‘Pay At Store’. We recommend you go through the checkout process to confirm.
Keep in mind these different scenarios can be modified to fit the needs of your store. You’re always welcome to reach out to us with questions on how to set up a specific rule.
