How to work with Promotions

Promotions allow you to to input expected demand uplifts and let Optiply anticipate.

Our Promotions functionality allows you to tell us when you expect to sell more ( or less ), because of a planned marketing campaign or a promotion. 

How to create a promotion

Take the following steps to create a promotion: 

  1. Promotions page > Add New 
    • Promotion Name 
      Name of the promotion. Think of "Spring TV Commercial" or "Google Add campaign week 12"
    • Start Date and End Date
    • Uplift Type 
      We support to types of default uplift. Either Absolute, or Relative.
      An Absolute uplift adds the expected uplift to the forecast between the start and end date.
      A Relative uplift adds the percentage you fill to the forecast between the start and end date.
    • Expected Uplift
    • Enabled, you van disable a promotion when creating it, and enabling it later, so it will only affect the connected product when you want to. 
    • Apply promotion to entire webshop, this adds all products from your account to this promotion. New products created after the promotion is created need to be added separately. Individual products can always be removed. Fill in the relevant information
