How do I apply a discount at checkout for a certain group of individuals?

I would like to apply a 5% discount to members who are "Red Star" life members of our organization at checkout? Is there a way to do this? I was thinking of a permanent coupon somehow with a 5% discount. Anyway, thanks in advance for your help once again! Have a nice day, eh?

How can you identify "Red Star" members? You can use that to identify who gets the coupon, usually by setting a session variable when they log in and using that as a condition for the discount rule.

How do I apply a discount at checkout for a certain group of individuals?

Hey Ray,
I don't quite understand. Presently nobody logs into the store. They just go to the store, select what they want and check out to purchase their items. I didn't know that I could have them log in at all. I went to the discount tab but couldn't figure out how to set up a rule for the discount. Since nobody logs in, is there a way to add a Red Star Life Member checkbox on the checkout page so that when checked, it automatically discounts 5% off of the total purchase? Thanks for your help Ray!
All the best,
Dale

You could add a checkbox, but everyone would check it... but that would work if that is what you want to do.

Just save a session variable when the box is checked and you can set a discount based on if the session variable is set or not.

How do I apply a discount at checkout for a certain group of individuals?

Hey Ray,
I have a couple of questions...
1. Where again do I set this session variable?
2. Do I use an updateable checkbox?
3. Do I add a percentage symbol somewhere, or does it automatically know that I want 5% discounted.

As you can tell, I'm a little confused, eh? Thanks again for your help Brother!

Let's do this in a premier support session next week so we can discuss it over the phone, do screen sharing, and get it all sorted. It shouldn't take long with us on the phone and me behind the wheel.

5% discount for Red Star life members

Hey Ray,
Sorry for the delay. I've been ill. Also, my boss won't pay for the premium session. A check box would be best for the moment. We're an honest bunch of veterans. So, if you could just tell me how to make this check box and what code to modify, I would appreciate it very much! Have a nice day, eh/
All the best,

You add a checkbox to the page. Save the checkbox value in the session, then add a rule to the eCart to give a discount based on the session variable value.

5% discount for Red Star life members

Hey Ray,
Since the "checkbox" looked kind of complicated and there's a "js" file associated with it (I was copying the shipping copy checkbox) I added a space to enter the person's life membership number by the "name" on the "checkout.php" page. I copied the "name" code and modified it:

<tr>
<th><label for="Red_Star_LM" >Red Star Life Member Number</label></th>
<td><input type="text" name="Red_Star_LM" id="Red_Star_LM"" /></td>
</tr>

Then I went to the eCart Object dialog box and tried to add a session variable on the "Discount" tab. I named it "Red_Star_LM". I selected the "Session Variable Exists" on the dropdown. The snapshot is attached....I saved the dialog box and uploaded it to the server. Well, it did not work at all. I got one of those HTTP errors that said that the store wasn't working. So, reverted everything to how it was before. The error kinda startled me a little bit, since a lot of people order from the site. But, now it works like it should. Obviously I'm doing something wrong here. Your help is greatly appreciated Ray! Have a nice day!

All the best,
Dale Iannello

First you have to use the "Set Session Value" server behavior to actually set the session value based on the form element.

Then the Calculation should be: Based on the cart subtotal times 0.05... you can't use plus 5%
