Error description

  • If the preventRemovalOfFreeGiftFromCart flag is set to 'true',
    using an order level free gift promotion with an AddStrategy of
    either 0 (Add if needed) or 2 (Never add) will cause the free
    gift to not be added to the cart and will instead discount the
    price of the entire order.
    
    The preventRemovalOfFreeGiftFromCart flag is used to control
    whether the shopper is permitted to remove a free gift from
    their cart, and is set in the file
    OrderFreeGiftBehaviorControl.xsl with <xsl:variable
    name="preventRemovalOfFreeGiftFromCart">true</xsl:variable>

    and wish to take advantage of using an Add Strategy of 0 or 2
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    Free gift promotions using an AddStrategy of 0 (Add if needed)
    or 2 (Never add), will not correctly calculate the order total
    in some cases.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    Orders will result in a total of $0.00 if free gift promotions
    with an add strategy of 0 or 2 are used
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • The behavior of using an Add Strategy of 0 or 2  has been
    corrected so as to perform the promotion as expected.
