BOGO has become one of the most popular and often used acronyms in the retail lexicon and Buy One, Get Ones are one of the most effective sales promotions in the business. Research shows that 93% of shoppers admit to taking advantage of a BOGO sale and 66% of them prefer them to any other kind of sales promotion. So, BOGOs are an easy way to bring customers to your store and setting them up in Paladin is just as easy.

Whether you want to offer a simple buy one, get on free promotion or a more advanced BOGO discount, you can design your own BOGO offer in mere minutes. And, our new Advanced Sale designer will guide you smoothly through the setup process with helpful explanations along the way.

The Paladin BOGO designer lets you set up three types of BOGO promotions.
