Discount Coupons


Recommended Posts

Hello. I really need to add in a field where customers can input a simple code (like 777) or whatever and get a 10% discount. It would be the same code for everybody. My client is wanting to do a mass mailing and stuff advertising it. I've tried the Order Total and Discount Coupon contributions, but they're not working properly. Does anyone know of an easier to use contribution or anything? The problem may be occurring due to the fact that I used a template, but nonetheless, I need to get the coupon thing added. Thanks for all your help!

Follow all instructions carefully, including USAGE instructions - most people don't and then wonder why it doesn't work.

 

I know this is a dumb question...but I see that it says it only works on RC1, RC2, and RC2a. This is the part I feel dumb for...but I wasn't sure if I had one of those or MS2. So i went to the admin part and looked under "Server Info" and at the top is says " osCommerce 2.2-MS2", but down a little ways it says "cast-128 gost rijndael-128 twofish arcfour cast-256 loki97 rijndael-192 saferplus wake blowfish-compat des rijndael-256 serpent xtea blowfish enigma rc2 tripledes" in the Supported Ciphers row. Will this contribution work?? Thanks for all your help!

Burt, that contribution does not work. I installed it, then restored my back ups.......and installed it again thinking I missed something. The contribution does not deduct the discount amount in the checkout confirmation.

 

Could you look at the upload, perhaps there are files missing ??

Actually Burt, I UNINSTALLED it, read directions AGAIN......then reinstalled it. IT DOES NOT WORK. I have asked in two locations and sent you a private message for a little insight on how I might fix this, but you didn't reply. So, before anyone else wastes their time installing a contribution that doesn't work........I thought I would ask here.

Did you give the coupons a unique sorting code when activating it under modules? I had the same problem as you and it turned out that I had two modules sorting under the same number causing the coupons not to show up.

 

And Burt, for the record your contribution rocks. Haven't installed it on the live store yet (only sandbox atm) but I will. Hopefully without any stupid snags to bother you with this time! ;)

If anyone gets stuck, read the readme and you'll get help if you ask nicely. If you don't bother reading, I generally don't bother helping. Of course, Chris knows that this contribution is broken, so anyone else who wants to believe that, please feel free not to install. The other few hundred people running the contribution all know it works ;)

 

Mind you, that's not to say that the contribution is perfect, by no means. I hate it when idiots tell me that my code is broken because they don't have the ability/knowledge to complete a 15 minute install.

 

 

 

Good work! Order total modules are a pain to get in the right order depends upon a number of factors, mostly tax based.

 

Does it matter where in the code of each file I add the code that you have in the text files?

It does matter in some files. If it matters, it will give further directions, eg: in checkout_process.php

In other files, it's not so important.

 

I just uploaded the files and edited the text files. Everything seemed to be fine, but when I go into the admin area, I can't find "coupons" under the customers area on the left. I also can't find the coupon module under order total. I know it's probably something that I did wrong. Any ideas? Thanks for all your help!
