Discounts by Category

Hello. This is me trying to figure how to setup a category discount.

I want to be able to provide during July 2009 20% discount on all items except form some in categories 7 and 11 that are new products for the fall collection. (Using ecart 4.5 and MySql and PHP.)

I want to be able to set a rule on the discounts page so only items added to the cart that aren't from those two categories get the 20% discount. Say items in catebodies 1, 2 and 3 are added to the cart as well as an item in category 7. What I want is that the discount should apply only the items from the categories 1, 2 and 3; but not to item from category 7.

Looking for some serious help here. Thanks. RP

Add a column to your cart to store the category if it doesn't exist already. I'll call that column Category in my example but use your existing category column if you have it already....

Create a calculation in your cart: DiscountedTotal = [TotalPrice] * (intval([Category]) < 7)

Then create a discount rule When the total of DiscountedTotal > 0 discount Amount total of DiscountedTotal * 0.2
