To make a coupon, follow these steps
- In Cart Administration, click on 'Coupons' under the 'Extra Features' heading.
- Click on 'Create a new coupon'.
- Assign it a coupon ID. This is what the customers will have to type to get the coupon.
- Set the discount code. A reference chart is included below that shows you how to make discounts. As a note: If you based it on quantity and you want all items to count towards that
quantity, make sure to build it as a global discount. (i.e., add the 'name' onto the end of the discount code.)
- Set the priority. When multiple coupons might apply to a single item, the coupon with the highest priority is used.
- Set the expiration date.
- Put the partnumbers you want the coupon to be valid for into the text area, one per line. If you want it to apply to all items, you can simply check the box.
: This code allows either a dollar-discount or a percentage-discount off the item price. If you desire the product to offer a dollar reduction, simply include the code:
dollar discount for product. If you want to give a savings percentage for the product, use the code:
percentage of discount for product. All entries MUST be numeric and include the currency ( $ ) or percentage symbol ( % ).
This variable is expandable by using the ( @ ), ( > ), or ( # ) symbols. To build a discount structure based on quantity use the ( @ ) or ( >) symbols your quantity, a colon, then the discount amount. To give a discount on every Nth item use the ( # ) symbol the Nth item, a colon, followed by the discount amount. If you prefix the discount code with the ( ! ) symbol, the discount will only be applied once rather then being applied to each item.
Discounts that begin with #, > or @ can be made global. To do this simply end the discount code with the global identifier. If a product is not made global than the discount can only apply to the 1 specific cart entry.
Please note that discounts are on a per-item basis, so if you have a discount of $10.00 on a product that only costs $4.95 the discount will be reduced, any remaining portion of the discount will be lost.
