Discount code option not showing on event when using the shopping cart.

I have set up an event with early registration discount (which is working) and discount code for members, which works only when the event is purchased individually. I wish for people to register for multiple events and still be able to use their discounts. Please help.

Sorry! I missed this post earlier. I will try to post the instructions of how to activate the coupon codes in the shopping cart when I get to a computer (typing from my phone at the moment).

Thank you I hope it is not to difficult.

Please do send the code…
another question: I also wanted to know if you have a built in “honey pot” to protect the forms from spam submission and email being use by non-member I hate Captchas.

So this is your response on the other post: (for the followers)

To clarify on the behavior of this code — will produce one coupon discount box, which will apply the discount to each of the items in the cart [result 1]or the total of the cart [result 2]?
item 1 = $20
item 2 = $80
item 3 = $100 I want to discount only this event $10
Total Due should be $190

Result 1 [discount applied to each item]
Percentage Discount 10% applied is 2+8+10= $20 discount total due= $180
Cash Discount $10 = (will be applied to each dropping their prices to $-10, $-10, $-10 = discount of $30) Total due $170.

Result 2 [total of the cart]
Total Due: $200 (without discount)
Discount 10% = $180 total due
Discount $10 = $190 total due

I know I could test this myself but others will have the same question until the fix is out. So your answer could save us all time.

This fix didn’t work for me. Can you make any other suggestions on how to use the discount code feature?

@cflpoa the discount will be applied to the total cost of the registration.
