Discount Promo Codes

    We would like to offer customers a special promo code so that by entering the code, they will get a certain product for only $5 each instead of the normal $7.50.

    I entered $2.50 as the discount value, but what then happens is that the cart only discounts $2.50 off the grand TOTAL, rather than take $2.50 off EACH of the products. Does this make sense? Can we set it up in this manner? Thank you, thank you!

    Not with the cart voucher system. You would need some kind of custom script on your website.

    hi Yukon4,

    Unfortuantly this is not supported with Mals. I can suggest simply lowering your prices by 2.50 and call it a sale?

    Also need some other webiste guys feedback would you like to exchange website links and give feedback on the site? I sell Kids toys.

    let me know my email is:

    Sorry for not being of any more help

    Maybe instead of a promo code, you could provide your customers with the URL to a "hidden" page on your web site where that particular product is listed with the lower price?

    Or if you wanted to get fancy you could possibly have a promo code box on your regular page where if they enter the correct code, some javascript code changes the applicable price(s). (I believe something along these lines is what Debbie was suggesting.) This would require some advanced scripting knowledge, but if you are capable, its an option.
