Flash sales

The "Flash Sale" is a Cdiscount service that display your promotional offers up to 72 hours max.

Once the Flash Sale has ended, you must wait 48 hours before being able to submit a new flash sale.

Fill in the following fields to manage a flash sale on Cdiscount:

  • Price: its value must be different from the one entered in the "StrikedPrice" field. The field must contain the crossed-out price of the product.
  • DiscountComponentDiscountValue is the percentage of the discount applied to the value in the "Price" field. The value must be numeric, between 1 and 99 and without the sign "%".
    Note: if the promotion percentage is not present in the Source Catalogue, you can calculate it from Lengow by setting up a formula via a Rule (and using in particular the CALC function).
    Cdiscount will automatically calculate the final price of the Flash Sale based on the selling price defined in the Cdiscount "Price" field and the discount percentage defined in the "DiscountComponentDiscountValue" field.
  • DiscountComponentStartDate: start date of the flash sale (format must be YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss)
  • DiscountComponentEndDate: end date of the flash sale (format must be YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss). The interval between StartDate and EndDate cannot be more than 72 hours.

Note: The "DiscountComponentType" and "DiscountComponentDiscountUnit" attributes, required by Cdiscount, are automatically filled in on our side as soon as you set up the flash sales attributes mentioned above.

Exemple of one Flash Sale:
In this example, for 2 days, the price indicated will be 49.99 - 20%, that is: 39.99€
The following attributes must be completed in Lengow:

  • Price : 49.99
  • DiscountValue : 20
  • DiscountComponentStartDate : 2022-06-21T21:00:00
  • DiscountComponentEndDate : 2022-06-23T20:00:00

Then, once your Flash sale is over, you can simply push a crossed-out price to 49.99€ with the price at 39.99€  by completing as below:

  • StrikedPrice : 49.99
  • Price : 39.99

Cdiscount tip: While you wait for Cdiscount's green light to set a new Flash sale, you can use and set strikethrough prices which are not limited in time.
