Magento natively provides two powerful features for applying promotions.

  • Catalog Price Rules
  • Shopping Cart Price Rules

Catalog Price Rules

Catalog price rules are used to apply discounts (fixed or %) to products and take effect on catalog pages (i.e. before items are even added to a cart).  This is the type of promotion one might use to put one or more categories of items on sale for a fixed period of time.  The applied discount can be configured to use the original price or the sale price of an item.
