Promo code or coupon based on total cart

We need to implement a coupon code that will deduct $100 from the cart, not each class. I find it hard to believe that this fairly basic functionality doesn’t exist in this very complicated software. SO what am I missing? Is there an add-on that will do this?

Hi Shari,

The Volume discount add-on has an option to offer a discount after a certain threshold is met:

In the example below, it applies a $10 discount after a registrant/attendee spends at least $200:

Also, you are running an older version of Event Espresso. Please backup and update to the current release:

Right, that’s currently the workaround we’re using. But if someone puts one class in their cart, they still should get the discount. And it needs to be selective, it cant apply to everyone.

So really, there’s no way to have a code that reduces the total amount of the cart by a certain amount? Like a coupon at the grocery store?

What if I created a promo code for $100 that only applied to one class whose cost was $0. If that $0 class was in the cart with a $100 class, would the net be $0?

OK, that didn’t work.

Thinking of another workaround. is there a way to allow only one promo code to be used per registration process?

Hi,

One promotion/discount code per registration checkout is not a condition that is available in the current promotion system for Event Espresso 3.

We have developers here that can help you with this:

Thank you. I’m working with a developer on this project. He is not aware of a way to code the coupon. Perhaps he can manage the one discount code per checkout.

Is there a place to put a feature request?

Hi,

We don’t have a place to request features right now, but if you advise what it is, then I can add it to our internal list.

I need the ability to have a promo code that just deducts a flat rate from the cart, not each class. Like if you have a coupon at the store for $10 off your entire bill but the person behind you doesn’t. You get the $10 off, he doesn’t. it has nothing to do with how much you’ve bought.

After some research, I realized that promo codes used to function this way (http://www.screencast.com/users/ShariBG/folders/Jing/media/d9d5c350-6303-4786-9072-783eeae23d9f). I’m confused as to why you’d take that functionality away.

Would be very very grateful if it reappeared.

I’ll certainly put it on the list. Whether it will be included again in EE3 is uncertain, though it will likely appear in EE4 in the future.

Wouldn’t we have to rebuild our system to migrate to EE4? I really hope not. That is just not in our budget. We were able to spend what we did to build this system (we hired a developer who actually lowered his rates for us) because it was one we could re-use. And right now, this is the only thing missing from it.

Hi Shari,

It depends on what was involved in building your system in the first place. If you have made extensive customizations to EE3, then yes, migrating to EE4 will involve re-factoring the customizations. If it’s stock installation of EE3 with a few cosmetic modifications then migrating to EE4 will not require rebuilding the site.

I can shed some light on why the coupon codes were changed: The earlier version of the promo code system had a very serious flaw where if Multi Event Registration was installed, and one event allowed a promo code to be used for it, any other event in a cart could use that code. This caused a lot of problems.

Due to the database structure of EE3, the only way to fix this was make it so a promo code could be tied to/used for a single ticket. When EE4 was developed we made sure that the underlying database structure was designed to accommodate more flexibility for the new promo code flexibility we are planning.

Hi Shari,

Update: The Promotions add-on for Event Espresso 4 is now available. With it, you can implement a coupon code that will deduct $100 from the cart, not each class.

Thank you. Unfortunately, we built our entire system in EE3 last year and won’t be able to change it any time soon.
