    I am wanting to give a 10% discount on gift certificates. I can't get it to work. This is what I have tried.

    I tried a straight coupon. My certificates do have a scode, but setting up a coupon does not work.

    Is there something I can put into my coding to make it be a value of 90% or 90 cents instead of a whole dollar?

    Here is the coding for my certificate:
    <table>
    <form action="http://ww9.aitsafe.com/cf/voucher.cfm"; method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="userid" value="B870029">
    <input type="hidden" name="return" value="www.howacoglass.com\gift_certificate.html">;
    <input type="hidden" name="tax" value="0">
    <input type="hidden" name="noship" value="1">
    <input type="hidden" name="scode" value="gift">
    <tr><td align="right">Gift Certificate Amount:</td><td><input type="text" name="gift_amount" size="2"> .00</td></tr>
    <tr><td align="right">Gift Certificate for:</td><td><input type="text" name="gift_name"></td></tr>
    <tr><td align="right">Email address to send certificate to:</td><td><input type="text" name="gift_email"></td></tr>
    <tr><td colspan="2"><br><br></td></tr>
    <tr><td colspan="2">Any special instructions:</td></tr><br>
    <tr><td colspan="2">ie, tell me what you want me to say to the receiver. Such as, who from, what day you want me to email it, any special notes from you. Or let me know if you need it mailed (need mailing address for this), etc.</td></tr><br>
    <tr><td colspan="2"><textarea cols="60" rows="10" name="gift_message">

    I am pretty sure vouchers do not work on voucher.cfm. I sell gift certificates as a product instead of using voucher.cfm. Maybe that would work?

    I only know how to set it up as voucher. Can I see your coding. Maybe I can change it to a product instead. But then do you have to manually make your vouchers?

    Yes, I have to manually make vouchers but since you have to send them manually anyway I figured why not. I just use product[] for all the fields and use form method add.cfm.
