osCommerce 2.3.1 and Coupon Discounts

By | November 24, 2010

A Discount Coupon system fully compatible with osCommerce 2.3.1 – yes please!


Link is in the Customers InfoBox;

You can see the number of uses and the date/time of the last use;

You can easily turn a coupon on and off;

Coupon can be set up in a very easy to follow form;

As you can see, coupons can have lots of different options, including “percent discount” or “cash discount”, “use once per customer”, use multiple per customer”, “use once, one time”. Coupons can also be set to expire at midnight on any day in the future and they can have a minimum spend amount. Coupon can also give “free shipping”.

Coupon Usage can be seen on the order invoice;

Shop Side

Coupon Input box shows in the shopping_cart page (in other words, BEFORE the checkout is initiated);

After a coupon is applied, the discount amount and the new order total are immediately shown;

And the shopping_cart infobox also shows the discounted order total;

The shopper checks out, and progresses through your checkout system, at the end of which, the confirmation page again shows the discount;

Coupon Usage can be seen in the Order History;

How to get this script

This script is a commercial script available fully installed by me at a cost of $100, though the first 3 get it for $50. It is the ONLY coupon script that has been re-written for 2.3.1 and is the ONLY coupon script that (as far as I am aware) allows the coupon to be applied at the Shopping Cart Stage. If you would like this professionally installed with minimum of fuss, email me on oscshops AT gmail DOT com

    hi Gary
    This script would be even better, if one could add a product / link in the webshop, where visitor could purchase a giftcard of their desired value.
    Then further improved if the code could be generated on the fly and emailed to the customer – something like that. 🙂

    hi Gary
    great for the future.
    here and now – how much for the script as a download/package – if i want to install myself?

    Hi Gary

    Micheal’s suggestion would be good for us too. 🙂

    Is it compatible with Paypal Express and Paypal Website Pro?

    Is there a way for this addon to have the coupons ‘activated’ by visiting a URL on the site, instead of entering the code in the checkout process?

    I want the coupon field to be hidden to customers that are not aware of it, so a direct URL with the coupon id in it would be the best option.

    Trent – there is no technical reason why that could not be done. Eg: http://www.yourshop.com/coupon.php?coupon=abc123 – starts the coupon running and redirects to index.php ready for the customer to fill up their cart, or to shopping_cart.php if they already have items in cart. As I say no technical reason other than it would need to be coded up.
