In my last post about my Coupons system, I signed off by saying this:
V5 – in the pipeline
Minimum Spend per coupon.
A “use once, one time” coupon. Once that is done, I can then look at the flip side of discount coupons, which is “gift vouchers.
I’m glad to say that both of these are now completed, so I’ve upgraded the status of this coupon system to “Version 5”. The minimum spend is live on some real stores, however, as of right now, no-one has the “use once, one time” coupon.
Minimum Spend per coupon
This is simply an input field, into which an amount is inserted. If the cart total is LESS than this amount, an error message is displayed along the lines of “please spend an extra $xx.yy to redeem this coupon”. It’s pretty simple and works well.
use once, one time
This is simply another selection under “Coupon Usage”. If you select “once”, then the coupon can only be used once. The coupon is set inactive at time of use. From my testing, it works very well.
As per recent versions of my coupon mod, this is only available for RC releases of osCommerce and is only available installed – if you are interested, please do contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
As an aside, I also wanted to point out that I have a few free eBooks available – have a hunt around my other site at http://www.oscbooks.com – I’ll make a proper post about it in the next few days.
