    I am trying to make a sale for a group of items, where the discount applies to these items and not to the whole site. I have done this before, but has something changed on mals? Because what I did before is not working now. I went to the discount coupon part of the cart, and did percentage value, 50% and a SKU "is equal to" and A16.

    <form class="left" action=""; method="post" onsubmit="return AddToCart(this)">
    <input type="hidden" name="userid" value="65174997" />
    <input type="hidden" name="return" value=""; />
    <input type="hidden" name="shipping" value="6.00" />
    <input type="hidden" name="tax" value="8.75" />
    <input type="hidden" name="productpr1" value="Silk and Satin:26::Silk and Satin" />
    <input type="hidden" name="scode" value="A16">
    <b>Hanging Option :</b><br />
    <select name="product1[]">
    <option value=" - Picture Rail">Picture Rail</option>
    <option value=" - Nail">Nail</option>
    <option value=" - Jane Austen">Jane Austen</option>
    <br /><br />
    <input type="text" name="qty1" size="3" value="1" />&nbsp;<b>Qty</b>
    <br /><br />
    Additional Cord <b>Price: $1 per Ft.</b><br />
    <input type="hidden" name="productpr2" value="Silk and Satin Extra Cord:1::Silk and Satin Extra Cord" />
    <input type="text" name="qty2" size="3" value="0" />&nbsp;<b>Qty</b>
    <br /><br />
    <input type="submit" class="btn" onmouseover="this.className='btn btnhov'" onmouseout="this.className='btn'" value="Buy Now!" />

    And when I do a test and try to apply the discount, it says "Sorry, this is not a valid discount coupon".

    Since you are using addmulti.cfm you have to give your scode a product number. ie: scode1=A16

    If they are also supposed to get 50% off the extra code you also need to give it an scode. In a productpr statement scode is the 4th value. product:price:units:scode:hash (in that order) <input type="hidden" name="productpr2" value="Silk and Satin Extra Cord:1:0:A16" />

    Any 'shipping' value you send to the cart replaces what is there, so this is rarely used. It is described at
