Create a Buy One Get One (BOGO) Offer

To create a buy one, get one offer, you'll need to have both Product Discount and Product Upsell installed. You must complete the Duplicate & Hide Install Instructions on your published theme before completing these steps. This code hides the discounted duplicate product from the storefront so it can only be purchased in the BOGO offer, without it customers will be able to purchase discounted products without qualifying for an offer.

With both apps installed and the duplicate and hide steps completed, follow these steps to set up a BOGO offer:
