I was considering a method for sellers so that they could create their own discount code, e.g. LABOR10, that could be used when a buyer makes a purchase from their store. The buyer could apply the code to their cart to give them an automatic 10% off, as an example.


Here's how it would work.

On the sellers side, there would be a page we could use to set up the sale. This page would have a text field for the name of the code, a text field for the percentage to apply, and a check box next to it for active/inactive. There could also be an optional page that lets the seller choose which items in his/her inventory the promotion applies to (e.g. all marvels, or only books over $x). But that is optional and the default is to apply the code to the entire inventory.

On the buyers side, when he/she goes to checkout, perhaps on the same page they are asked to choose a shipping method, there is a text field where they can enter a promo code. Once the code is entered it would automatically recalculate the subtotal with the discount applied.

Just an idea. What does everyone else think?

I like it. It sounds like it would make it easy to give a discount.

I second this idea. Would be so much more helpful then waiting for refunds and what not.

I don't mind giving the paypal refund, but I am sure my buyers would rather have it your way errant. I also vote yes.

Not sure if any CCl staff have seen this idea, but, it's a really good one, and I would like to see it put in place.

Entirely possible if it does nothing to touch the client software and the discount were applied to the entire sale, but it would need an ok from Joe.

The idea of targeting individual items would cause at least a touch to the cart, send to paypal and return from paypal or a restructure of the sale data, all of which is possible, but not likely.

My reckoning is this would be about 30 hours, 50 if I went mercenary, since I'd have to guarantee to Joe that nothing would be effected, and he'd still have to ok the change.




Settle down beavis.

I think 30 hours is perfectly reasonable for this MM. Targeting individual items in a sellers inventory is understandably beyond that scope of that timeframe but I would be thrilled for a buyer to simply be able to apply a discount to the subtotal of their cart contents from my store in general. There are ways to work around not allowing that discount for certain items. But if done right, I think you can probably set up the framework for the discount feature to be further implimented at a later date, perhaps during the next dot build of the cs. Thanks for looking into it.

At the very least, saying, "This code word is only for X books," even if it works on all the books, is easier than saying, "Pay the full amount and I'll send you a rebate for some."
