Change Price for single purchase


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to chage the price of an item "on the fly"


I would like to be able to override the price for an object that is used on the shopping cart page from the database.


I have the price change worked out, I just need to know how to get that new price to the checkout.

Basically, if amember adds the product from a page I would give them it would be say 10% cheaper.


If the product page has the item for $10 and the user hits add to cart

It goes in @ $10.00


Id like to give them a different page that has a 10% discount, I have the new price being added to that add to cart button but the shopping cart still displays the price from the database instead of $9.90.

Hope that makes sense.

Got it worked out but took a different approach


Once I got the product that I wanted to override the price for,

I add it to the specials table in the database

Give it an expiration date of 5 minutes

then they have 5 minutes to get it for that price.


Bonus to anyone else shopping for that same product if they checkout in that 5 minutes -

but I couldnt figure any other way.
