Automatically add free promo products to the cart: a free brush when customers order shoes, a free belt for expensive jeans, and so on.
Still thinking how to attract new customers? Want to make sure the tried-and-trusted ones return to your store over and over again? Then create effective promotions with new Auto Add Promo Items extension.

The magic of 'FREE' is very powerful. What can be more attractive for a customer than getting goods for free?! Nothing! Studies show that free gifts are a lot more effective than even big discounts, in other words a free five-dollar product attracts more customers than ten-dollar discount.
