You can define two types of criteria,

  1. based on any the past purchases of customers or rolled up metrics of past purchases. 
  2. based on data from the line item, header, lookup objects, and child objects of the lookup objects for a quote or an order.

You can also define additional filter criteria to determine which products this promotion is applicable for.
