Creating a discount for your store

The e-Store allows you to create various discounts for your site.  You can specify a discount based on the order total, product(s), or shipping methods.  Below are steps to setup a discount, with expanded examples at the bottom of this article:

1. Log into your e-Store Control Panel
2. Click on the Manage tab
3. Select Discounts from the category bar to the left
4. Press the New button
5. Under the Discount drop-down menu, select the appropriate discount you want to setup

6. Fill out the necessary information

Note: These fields change depending on what selection you make in step 5.

7. Press the Save Changes button

Below are examples of various discounts, and screen shots of how you would set this up. Discount for Products

Discount needed: Buy product 1 and product 2, get product 3 half off (On going discount).

In the example above, Product 3 costs $9.95, so to provide a 50% discount on that product, you would need to enter 1/2 the cost of the product, which is $4.98, and select Amount.

Note: If you choose Percentage, instead of Amount, it will discount Products 1, 2, and 3 by the percentage specified.

Discount for Order Totals

Discount needed: One-time use coupon for 10% off store-wide purchases (Between 11/1/2006 - 12/31/2006).  This discount must not be combined with other discounts.

Note: The customer would need to enter a promotional code of "Holiday" (this can be changed)  in the checkout process to activate this discount.  

Discount for Shipping Methods

Discount needed: Free ground shipping for all orders over $100 (Between 12/15/006 - 12/25/2006).
