Dicount Voucher Help

Hi Folks,

Im trying to achieve the following:
I need to create a discount code, (08444) that when entered at the cart gives customers £25 off for every £500 they spend.

This is for selected customers who we are mailing to, hence we dont want it avalable to everyone and want it via the discount code.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Paul

On the eCart support page on the right side there is a link to archived documentation. If you click on this link to bring up the archived documentation you will see a section titled:

Solution Recipes (eCart 4)

In here is the solution recipe for coupons, it is titled:

Creating a Coupon system for your eCart store (Interactive Tutorial)
Printable Version (PDF)

This is the documentation that we have for adding a coupon code to your store. Please give this a try and let us know if you have any questions.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for this.
Ive already checked this out and just need help with the math,
I need to know how to work out the formula for every full £500 spent a discount of £25 is applied as long as they enter the cupon code.
So if they spent £500 and entered the cupon code, a £25 discount would apply,
£600 a £25 discount would apply, £1000, a £50 discount would apply..so its only on each full £500 thats spent.

Cheers

Hi Paul.

There may well be a neater solution than this, but i have got it to work, (still using ecart4)

(i will link to this thread in case a better solution comes along)

Assuming you have a session variable being triggered correctly...

in the discounts tab, create a discount rule called £25 off £500+ or something

in the triggers,
Conditions should be session varaible SESSIONNAME == code

AND SubTotal of items >=500
AND SubTotal of items <1000

Flat rate discount of £25

create a second discount rule called £50 off £1000+ or something

in the triggers,
Conditions should be session varaible SESSIONNAME == code

AND SubTotal of items >=1000
AND SubTotal of items <1500

Flat rate discount of £50

etc.

if the threshold of £1000 is reached, the first trigger will not fire, so discounts are not duplicated.

The thing I don't like about this approach is, if you get a huge order, you have to put sufficient rules in to account for this

hope this helps

Here is a neater solution:

On the calculations tab, create a new calculation:
Name: every500
type: number
Calculation: floor(([Price] * [Quantity])/500) * 25


then on the discount, set the trigger as outlined in the Coupon code recipe, and set the calculation to "based on Column Subtotal":
Subtotal of column 'every500' 'plus' '0'

actually, that wont work quite right, but this will:

don't create the calculation on the calculation tab.

Instead, do the math inside the discount.


Set the discount rule up with the trigger from the tutorial

In the calculation section, set it to a flat rate and add the following code for the flat rate:

php:
floor($this->TotalColumn('TotalPrice')/500)*25
