I checked the Sales > Pricelist functionality but I cannot figure out how to apply these kind of discounts like Buy one get one free, buy 2 get the 3rd RM1 and similar stuff.

I had try to install this module https://apps.openerp.com/apps/modules/8.0/product_pricelist_rules/ but no luck. i couldn't get any price deduction based on the configured pricelist after installed the module. Anyone face the same problem as me?

The discount promotion is quite common in Malaysia online store practice.

You can create kits or bundles using BoMs to cover such functionality. Or you can look at Pragmatic's module for different promotion schemes: https://apps.openerp.com/apps/modules/9.0/pos_promotional_scheme/
