Coupon Codes and eCart6

Coupon Codes and eCart6

I've added a coupon code form to my cart page and everything works correctly as far as applying the correct discount when the correct discount code is entered. What I can't do is validate if a correct coupon code is entered. How can I validate when someone enters a coupon code if it is a valid coupon code and if it isn't valid display a message not a valid coupon code?

you would need to hand code this:


<?php
if(isset($_POST['CouponCode']) {
if($_POST['CouponCode'] != "ValidCode") {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "yes";
} else {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "no";
}
}
?>



then to show the error:

<?php if(isset($_SESSION['badCoupon']) && $_SESSION['badCoupon'] == "yes")) echo "you entered an incorrect coupon code"; ?>

Lets say that I have 3 valid coupon codes: 1.airflight 2.facebook 3.pinterest How should the top portion of the code be written?

you have the code inside a validatonb show if:

<?php
if (ValidatedField('cart','cart')) {
if ((strpos((",".ValidatedField("cart","cart").","), "," . "1" . ",") !== false || "1" == "")) {
if (!(false)) {
?>
<?php
if(isset($_POST['Coupon_Code'])) {
if(($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "airflight") || ($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "facebook") || ($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "pinterest")) {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "yes";
} else {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "no";
}
}
?>
<?php if(isset($_SESSION['badCoupon']) && ($_SESSION['badCoupon'] == "yes")) echo "you entered an incorrect coupon code"; ?>
<span class="serverInvalidState" id="Coupon_Code_ServerError">Please enter valid coupon code</span>
<?php //WAFV_Conditional cart.php cart(1:)
}
}
}?>

it needs to be outside of the validation show if.

Moved it outside and I'm getting closer but whether you out in a valid code or invalid it says the coupon code is invalid. Here is the code:
<?php
if(isset($_POST['Coupon_Code'])) {
if(($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "airflight") || ($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "facebook") || ($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "pinterest")) {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "yes"; }
else {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "no";
}
}
?>

Can't figure out why all coupon codes are invalid.

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

When you compare to only one coupon code everything works fine.

<?php
if(isset($_POST['Coupon_Code'])) {
if($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "airflight") {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "yes";
} else {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "no";
}
}
?>
This code works fine. Its the code for three coupon codes that isn't working

<?php
if(isset($_POST['Coupon_Code'])) {
if(($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "airflight") || ($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "facebook") || ($_POST['Coupon_Code'] != "pinterest")) {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "yes"; }
else {
$_SESSION['badCoupon'] = "no";
}
}
?>
