Need a discount module...

Hi y'all

 

I'd like to be able to add a discount system and there are several to choose from inthe contributions section, however none seems to do exactly what I require. What I'm after is an extra field in the checkout which will allow customers to type in a discount code which will subtract that month's special offer from the total.

 

I'm not after individual discount coupons, but I would like to be able to publish a code, which all customers couuld use, which will apply a reduction or free postage or whatever is the current special offer. The code would change from time to time.

 

Can anyone point me in the direction of a module which can do this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Looking for the same thing. I had a previous little javacript-only cart that had a text input field at checkout that a customer could type in a discount code (I had provided) that would then apply some % or fixed $ discount from the entire order (not shipping). I had several discount codes that I would enable or disable. I could delete/create codes easily.

 

I also couldnt find anything this simple in the contributions.....

Neil- the CCGV Contribution will do that (Credit Class & Gift Vouchers). You set up a discount coupon code, advertise it on your website and anyone can use that discount code (during checkout) for the period it is valid for (you set this period up when you add the discount coupon). You can also set it so that each person gets to use the code just once, multiple times per person, and you can even specify that it is valid only for certain items (if you want t do that).

Thanks very much for that, that should be just what we want.

 

All I need to do now is get the CCGV module working! I posted a query into the support thread but haven't had an answer yet. Basically whenever I try to activate the ot_coupon module I get an error message like this:

 

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class ot_coupon in /includes/modules/order_total/ot_coupon.php on line 15

 

I don't suppose you have any suggestions on that do you? All the other parts are working, I can setup send and redeem vouchers OK.

Thank you Vger for your suggestion - it's solved my problem, sort of!

 

There wasn't actually any extra white space in the files, but in the process of examining them to check I discovered that I had copied the /includes/modules/order_total files into the includes/language/english/.... folder instead of the proper language definition files. Doh! I guess that's what happens when you end up working until 2 in the morning to try and meet a deadline.

 

I've just run a test and everything worked fine - what a relief.

 

I thank you very much for your interest and really appreciate you taking the time to make a suggestion.
