Email addresses from a company are grouped under the same email domain and can be easily used to target a group of customers for multiple purposes. If you wish for example to apply a discount on all customers from a group or company, one of the best way to do it is to target their company email address domain.
In today’s article, you will learn how to create a discount on an order subtotal or a product price based on the customers email domain using WooCommerce All Discounts.
An email address is usually structured as email@example.com where domain.com is the domain name. It can be gmail, yahoo, hotmail or your company’s. Anybody that work in a company will have a professional email based on that company domain name.
In order to create a discount based on the customers email domain, follow the steps below:
- Click on Discounts > New discount to access the discount creation page.
- Then scroll down to the rules section and click on the Add rules group button to create a new set of rules.
- In the rules dropdown that will show up, select “If customer email domain” as discount condition.
- Then enter the domain name in the value field. If you want to apply the discount on multiple domains, you can add all of them, separated them by a comma.
- Select Percentage off product price or Percentage off order subtotal or any other action according to your needs.
- Select the other discount parameters and then save your discount.
The plugin will then check the customer’s email domain against the email of the logged-in customer and apply the discount if it matches any of the domains set in the discount rules.
