All things Shopify and commerce
what I'm trying to do is to create a discount code that will add free gifts to the shopping cart when the discount code is entered (provided that products from a certain category were placed into the cart for a certain amount). In other words:
1. A customer has any products from Category A for a total value of >1000€ in his shopping cart
2. He enteres the discount code and three gifts are being added to his shopping cart
What could be the best solution here? I found some old topics about this that are >2 years old but I assume that there must be some new solutions for this issue.
Thanks for reaching out.
I think it is a great idea to offer free gifts to your customers as using a discount or allowing a free gift can definitely encourage a purchase! By default, we can create automatic discounts to allow your customers to receive the discount when they navigate to the checkout. For this situation, you could create a Buy X Get Y automatic discount to either offer a free product or a percentage off of the price of products.
With that being said, if you are looking for a bit more features when it comes to creating a discount or offering a free product to your customers, we can look towards using a third-party application. I put together a couple of my recommendations of applications that allow you to offer a free gift to your customers, feel free to check them out:

Hi Ollie, I checked the apps that you mentioned but none of them seem to have this feature. The feature of adding a free gift automatically to cart when the customer types in a discount code that is associated with the free gift. Let me know if there are any other apps or plugins that you could recommend which have this feature.
