eCart 5 & Discounts
I have done the tutorial on setting up a discount for the cart with the promo code. I have applied it to the cart but my customer doesn't want the discount to apply to every product. I set up a new column in the database called discountable and I read through another thread about setting up the column and updating the add to cart button and binding the new column to the product pages. I also only want the discount applied when the promo code is entered.
However I don't understand how to set up the discount in the eCart objects. I really need some help here, because I can't find any information about this.
Why are there no more information about how to set up various discounts and how to use each different condition and calculation? The eCommerce Solutions Recipe goes through some but not all the conditions and it was written for eCart 3. Wouldn't it be more useful updated to reflect eCart 5 so that users know they are doing thing right.
Last question: I didn't have Universal Email loaded when I did my first carts, is there a way to add that feature or do I have to start all over again? The reason I ask is because I'm afraid to start all over. I have done the eCart 2 times now and both times I have had similar problems. I did take note on the second help, but I feel like it will just happen again, which is frustrating because I paid money for this program, and I won't be able to figure out each item that needs to be fixed because I'm not a programmer who understands all the code and what I need to be looking for to make corrections.
