Spring a surprise on customers when they place an order. The Add Free Product To Cart Magento extension allows you to set up rules to present a gift to your clients or offer a discount on any product.
Go to Promotions->Add Free Product To Cart->Settings (or to System->Configuration->aheadWorks Extensions->Add Free Product To Cart) to configure the extension's general options.
- Enable Extension : "Yes/No"
- Allow to re-add free product if it was deleted from cart: the option defines whether a free items will be added back to cart in case a customer has removed them manually (after the cart update).
- Display option "Do not show this pop up again": This option works if customer click 'Decline' only. It does not work if it is ticked and 'Accept' button is clicked.
NOTE: The combination 'Do not show this popup again' and clicking 'Declined', will cancel all further rules processing for the current shopping cart content.
- Display pop up on shopping cart and on checkout page only (AJAX Cart Pro extension required) - allows displaying the Add Free Product to Cart pop up on the cart and checkout pages only;
- Cookie lifetime: this option defines for how long the pop-up window will remain inactive after a customer closes it
Setting Up Rules
You can add new rules and manage the existent ones in Promotions->Add Free Product To Cart->Rules backend page.
Rule Info tab:
Here, you can specify the basic rule parameters: Rule Name, Description (visible to admin users only), Status, Storeview, Customer Groups, From-To dates.
Pay attention to the below options:
Show Pop Up on adding Item(s) to Cart: If set to 'No', the product will be added to cart automatically.
If this option set to 'Yes' a popup prompting a confirmation to add product to cart will be displayed. If several rules are triggered at a time, the popup will show the full list of currently available free items.
*in case AJAX Cart Pro is installed, the popup(s) will be displayed on Cart View, or Checkout pages, depending on what page customer visit first.
- Priority: this option defines the order of rules processing. Can work in conjunction with "Stop Further Rules Processing" option
In this tab, you should define the conditions for the rule to get triggered.
The available conditions are identical to those of the native Shopping Cart Price Rules, and include Cart Attributes (Total Amount/ Quantity, etc) and Product Attributes.
Currently, the extension supports 2 bonus types (you can switch between them via "Apply" selector), each of the bonus types has different set of options.

If you remove the tables as it is described above, you will need to create all rules again after the extension is reinstalled.
