Hi, I was wondering it was possible to add that a coupon was used to the “New Order” email that’s sent to me after a customer purchases an item?

Hi, I suppose it could be possible if you modify the email template, but it’s not something that is within the purpose of this plugin.

Hello I cannot find the support forum for this plugin on your site, so am posting my issue here. I am trying to figure out a way to set this up so that when a customer buys any quantity of a minimum of 2 different products in a category, e.g. apples and oranges, a cart discount of 10% will apply.

If I set it up to be “sum”, the discount will still come into effect if the customer buys 2 apples (not what I want). If not sum, then if the customer buys 1 apple and 1 orange, the discount does not come into effect (also not what I want).

Is there a way to have the desired outcome that I am missing?

Secondly, I have one category of premium products that needs to be excluded from the discount applied. But if a product from this category is added to the cart it invalidates the whole coupon. Whereas I would expect the discount to still apply to the cart, but just that item to be excluded from the calculation (e.g. “offer does not apply to premium products”). Any way around this?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Thank you for your prompt reply (+1 for good support!). But I am not sure how this code on line 194 is relevant. As I understand, this checks if the cart items are in a certain category. That’s fine. But then I also want to count the number of individual product_ids in the cart and check it is minimum 2 before coupon is applied. Does that make sense?

itthinx

Yes, basically the difference would be that we need a mapping from terms to product ids which relate the number of items per category; as it is now it holds the sums. Do you see what I mean? Maybe it’s even a good idea to offer this as an option in the coupon settings, I mean I could add it to the plugin itself if that makes it easier.

Ah I see, that makes the process clearer, thank you. But if you could also add it to the standard plugin as an option that would be amazing as I have been struggling to set it up and get it working (my coding skills are very basic). Thank you very much!

hello I can do? if the customer buys a minimum amount of product shipping charges are free or 50% discount on shipping costs example 4 units of the product A free Shipping costs 2 units of product A 50% discount on shipping cost thanks greetings

Hi, as there is no shipping cost discount type, you can’t have such a coupon. The option that WooCommerce provides is free shipping, but it doesn’t allow to have a % off shipping so what you’re asking is not possible. At least not with WooCommerce OOTB (maybe another plugin offers that but I don’t really know).

Default-user

hi I could do this?. If you buy 5 units of product 1 plus free shipping. If you buy 5 units of item 2 pays shipping costs. If you buy 2 units of product 1 + 3 units of product 2 pays shipping costs. thanks

itthinx

No that’s not possible, sorry.

Looking for a plugin that can help us: “Buy one, get one 50% off” Looks like it can do this but could you confirm please? Thank you

itthinx

Hi, as it doesn’t modify the prices but rather grants discounts conditionally, something similar can be achieved. For example, minimum 2 units, maximum 2 units => grant 25% product discount would be equivalent to the 50% discount on 1 unit.

I’m looking to offer a free product when a certain volume is met – is this possible with your plug-in?

For example: Buy 10 apples and get 1 free orange. Or buy 20 apples and get 2 free oranges.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

itthinx

Hi,

Note that the plugin determines the validity of coupons based on volume restrictions, it does not change the actual price of products.

To cover cases like those that you mention, it might get close, but it’s not as flexible as you’d desire it to be to cover those in a generic way.

So you can’t establish a rule where it grants a free orange, but you can set up a coupon that is limited to oranges and requires at least 10 apples in the cart, granting the equivalent of the orange’s price.

You would need to set up another coupon to grant a discount equivalent to 2 oranges, restricted to having at least 20 apples in the cart.

I hope that helps to get the idea, it’s not an ideal solution for what you require I suppose.

Cheers

Hi. A pre-sales question. Is there a way to have an offer like this:

Buy 2 XYZ and get the thirs XYZ half price.

Hello, I’m considering buying your product. I just want to make sure it does what I need.

If the customer orders 2 of a product they get a value discount at the cart. But the discount is only applied if they enter a coupon code. Also can the discount be applied multiple times within the cart.

e.g. A book is £6. The coupon would be “order 2 books for £10” If the customer was to order 4 books the cart total would be £20.

Many thanks Alex

Thanks for your purchase!

For the discounts in pairs I see a possible approache. Define several coupons which use both the minimum and maximum settings, minimum 2 and maximum 2, minimum 4 and maximum 4, etc. You’d have to define a coupon for each combination.

Nice idea in theory, but it won’t allow me to create multiple coupons with the same code. It wouldn’t be very effective if the customer has to enter a different code for each pair they order. Cheers

itthinx

Hi Alex,

I’ve been considering this again, apart from the approach using multiple coupons, this would require coupons to take multiples into account and allow to define certain rules. For example, for multiples of 2, grant £1 off per unit, for other multiples, grant £1 off on the nearest multiple of 2 below. Tricky … I don’t see this happening currently for the plugin to be honest, it seems too specific and might complicate things for users in general.

If you could auto-apply the discounts, then it would be easier using multiple coupons, but as you want the customers to input the code, there’s no other option at present.

Cheers

Hi there itthinx!

Question before I buy … can I use your coupon plugin in conjunction with sale items in the cart?

What I mean: Right now we are having a 20% off sale on all non-sale items BUT the coupon does not work because when a customer add sale items and non-sale items to the cart the coupon will not work when there are sale items in the cart.

We would like to be able to let the customer add sale items and non-sale items to the cart and for the coupon to work only on the non-sale items while the also letting the customer purchase sale items.

Make since?

Does your plugin do this? or can we do this with your plugin?

Thank you so much, Christine :)

itthinx

Hi Christine,

The plugin does not make a distinction with respect to sale items. There is a standard option “Exclude sale items” built into the coupon settings (you don’t need any particular plugin for that, it’s part of WooCommerce OOTB).

Cheers

hello, we want use your plugin with our theme themeforest.net/item/book-your-travel-online-booking-wordpress-theme/5632266/comments

allow users get a discount if they book more than 3 days together… it similar than volume but with dates instead

http://prntscr.com/4c99db

can you update your script and provide support for this please? thanks a lot.

itthinx

Hi, sorry but there are no plans to support the particulars of that theme.

hi,

I have a client with a complex discount method, they offer a $3.00 discount on each item in the cart when there are 6 or more products in total bought. Would your plugin be able to assist with this?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Thanks for your reply, I bought your plugin, though I can now only get it to work when you have a certain amount of the same products in the cart rather than the volume of the cart in total? Please would you be able to advise?

Default-user

hi, sorry too quick on the ask for help. I have managed to figure it out by adding all products to a single category.

Works great, thanks!

itthinx

Hi, thanks for the update on that. Yes, that general category is how it is done. Thanks for purchasing it, please don’t forget to rate it. Thanks!
