I just installed it and it works fine so far! Worked from the beginning. Just what I was looking for. Thank you very much! It is easy to configure and one can give discounts for elements in a category. One does not have to put up categories, it takes the existing ones. Automatically puts the message at the product page, at each one in the category. It is also possible to set several rules for the category, e.g.: buy 2 – 9 get 20% off, buy 10 – 20 get 30 % off. It is a “simple” plugin (for the user simple), yet strong and does what it should. Very well done. Worth a try, since it is hard to find any other plugin for free which does the same.
