|Fixed amount discount for whole cart||Discounts the entire cart by subtracting a fixed amount from the cart total. For example: Enter 10 in Discount Amount to subtract $10 from the cart total. By default, the discount applies only to the cart subtotal. To apply the discount to the subtotal and shipping separately, use the Apply to Shipping Amount option.|
||Defines a quantity that the customer must purchase to receive a quantity for free. (The Discount Amount is Y.)|
Enter the Discount Amount as a number, without symbols. For example, depending on the discount option selected, the number 10 might indicate a percentage, a fixed amount, or a quantity of items.

To stop processing other rules after this rule is applied, set Discard Subsequent Rules () to
Yes. This setting prevents multiple discounts from being applied to the same product.
||Prevents any other pricing rules that may apply to a product from being applied. When multiple pricing rules apply to the same product, only the pricing rule with the highest defined priority (in a rule Priority field) is applied to the qualifying product. This prevents multiple pricing rules from stacking and providing unintended additional discounts.|
||Allows multiple pricing rules to apply to the same product. This could result in stacking and providing multiple discounts applied to your listing price.|
To discard subsequent rules, a pricing rule must use the defined priorities that are set in the Priority field of each rule, and multiple rules should not have the same priority defined . See Priority in the Add a New Rule step.
To define the exact products in the shopping cart that are affected by the cart price rule, add the additional conditions that are needed for the action.
