What Are the Main Promotion Types?
There are two types of promotions on Joom:
- Platform promotions - the promotions created by Joom. You can upload your products according to the requirements and deadlines and set the discount range.
- Merchant promotions - the custom promotions created by merchants, including:
- Top Store Promotions;
- Merchant Discounts.
👉 With Merchant promotions, you can get additional traffic for your products. Also, you can set the promotion’s timeframe and the discount range. For more information, please refer to the article: Merchant Promotions.
The products participating in the promotions are combined in the groups that get displayed on Joom website main page and Joom app Promotions tab.
You can see whether the promotion is created by the platform or the merchant in the Type column on the Promotions page in the Merchant Panel.
If a customer buys a product participating in the promo, you will find the discount amount details on the order page.
👉 For more information on how different promotion discounts sum up, please refer to the article Promotional Activities.
