Catalog price rules are discounts that are applied to products, but they can also be assigned to shops, countries, currencies and customer groups. This allows you to apply the discount to a specific set of your customers or a specific geographic location as served by your shops. The following tutorial will show you how to specify where and who can use your catalog price rule in PrestaShop 1.5.

In order to apply your catalog price rule, one of the options you need to determine who can use it. These options are limited to the shops, currency, country and customer groups. If you want to supply a discount to a specific person or group of people, consider creating a cart rule (voucher/coupon) instead of the catalog price rule. Remember to carefully consider the group, shop and currency/country that a user can access when shopping in your PrestaShop store.
