Storing the Coupon code against the order

Thread began 10/14/2009 7:17 am by en6geh388551 | Last modified 10/14/2009 12:55 pm by Jason Byrnes | 663 views | 1 replies |


Storing the Coupon code against the order


I have followed the recipe and added the coupon to my cart :-)


currently all my orders are saved in the mysql database (as per the tutorials.)
I would like to now record the coupon id against the order in the mysql database - so that I can give out multiple coupon ids and track which are the most successful.
I am not to 'hot' on PHP (but I have managed to install and implement ecart so I can muddle through).

If anyone can help it would be appreciated.

This is fairly strait forward. The coupon code is stored in a session variable, you just need to store that variable in the orders table.

First, you need to add a coupon column to the orders table in your MySQL database

Open the confirm page, and double click the eCart Store Order Summary server behavior.

Select the new coupon column, then click the lightning bolt next to value. from the session collection, select the coupon code session variable and click OK.
