Title: 3x2 offer of products in the same category.
Post by: tyffany999 on January 15, 2009, 03:08:51 am
Hi,

I'm looking articles on the application of discounts VirtueMart.

Specifically looking for implementing the typical offer of 3x2 (which we see in supermarkets), but this is applied in different 3x2 products in the same, ie: for example if I have the class "officers", I want to implement all articles of this category offering 3x2, so any buying 3 items in this category give away the lowest price ...

In the same article and I have worked a little more, not really offer 3x2 literally, but what I do is ke from the 3rd unit cheaper each unit is worth.

That was done, but asked whether there was any way to implement the 3x2 that I am raising.

A greeting to all and thank you very much for your attention.

Note: Sorry for my english, I'm spanish...

THANKS!!!

Hello. Sorry if I have not managed to explain, I do not speak English very well.

3x2 means that I buy 3 products and they give me free the product with lowest price. Example: I bought:
- Table 50$
- Chair 30$
- Lamp 15$
Total = 95$
But the offer 3x2 would be = 95$ - 15$ = 80$ (the lamp is the article cheaper and thus give it to me free).

Spain offers 3x2 do you purchase 3 items and they give you the article cheapest.

I want to do this in my articles Virtuemart. But the articles do not have the same price, and can be the same item or different items in the same category. Example:
- Home
   - Dining room
     * Mesa = 50$
     * Chair = 30$
     * Lamp = 15$
   - Kitchen
   - Bathroom

I bought 3 chair: 30 + 30 + 30 = 90$
With the offer 3x2 = 90 - 30 = 60$ (30+30+30-30)

Another example:
I bought 1 table, 1 chair and 1 lamp: 50 + 30 + 15 = $ 95
3x2 with the offer: 95 - $ 15 = 80. (50+30+15-15)

Do you understand me now? I hope I have explained.

My website is: http://www.notecortesavila.com

I have made other offers, but I only know down the price to a specific article.

If you can help me I would greatly appreciate.

Greetings!  ;D  Thanks!!!

Hello everybody!

Nobody knows solved this question?

I would need to apply this offer in Joomla and VirtueMart, but I don't find a module to allow this.

Please, if anyone knows anything about this, tell me that!

Best regards and thanks in advance.

NOTE: Sorry for my english...  ;)

There is, as far as I know, not any module or hack that allows this for VM.

I am working on this for VM 1.2, an advanced discount system. But not for the current VM 1.1.x

Thanks for your reply.
That's great, because I'm interested in applying different discounts for VM.
I want to implement the offer 3x2 that I explained earlier, this is very important in my country because it is used extensively in all the shops (shops, supermarkets ...)
And I also want to apply another discount rate is to add a gift (which select the administrator or client) from a total ordering concrete, example:
That from 100 € to buy, add to cart a gift automatically (an item you have chosen the administrator, or to choose between 2 or 3 items to the customer)

I hope to have explained well ...

I wanted to ask you when going to VM 1.2, I have now 1.1.3 stable, although I had trouble updating to 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 and I do not know if I did it correctly.

A greeting and thank you very much for your answer.  ;D

We had a special discounts module written for V.M 1.1.2 that does do 3 for 2, buy this get something else for free etc.

It is not a polished module, no instructions  and it only works with the default V.M template at the moment.

If interested let me know and I'll send it to you.

P.S: when I've got some time will write instructions for it and put it somewhere for anybody who wants it.

Hello! Thanks for your answer Panikos.

Thank you very much for your help.

What I forgot to say is that it works for us with JM 1.5.8 and VM1.1.2.
Not tested it on anything else and had it specifically written for that combination. Don't blame me if it doesn't work for you. I didn't write it myself but my employer paid to have it written for us. I persuaded her that it would be a nice jesture to let anybody who wants it have for free since we have saved a small fortune in time and money by using JM and VM for free.

I've done a brand new installation of JM1.5.9 and VM1.1.2
Then installed the coupon system and it installed perfectly.

Have you got legacy mode enabled??
It needs JM legacy mode enabled for it to work.

Hi everybody,
I've installed this component and it works fine except discounts per amount.
Coupon System: Configuration
Configuration
Minimum Amount for Free Shipping: 300.00
Volume Discount: 100:3%,150:5%,200:8%,250:10%
Example: 200:10%,300:20%,... Amount/Discount

I put the values as in the example but they don't work.
However when I make a coupon and I use it at the shop it works fine. Even the discount when I exceed the minimum amount for free shipping.

I overcoat need the volume discount option automatically.

Somebody could help me??
Lots of thanks

-----------------------------------------

Hola a todos,
he instalado este componente y todo funciona correctamente excepto los descuentos por volumen de compra:

Coupon System: Configuration
Configuration
Minimum Amount for Free Shipping: 300.00
Volume Discount: 100:3%,150:5%,200:8%,250:10%
Example: 200:10%,300:20%,... Amount/Discount

He puesto los rangos tal como los ponen en el ejemplo pero a la hora de hacer una compra no se efectúan los descuentos.

Sin embargo cuando genero los cupones e introduzco el código del cupón sí efectua el descuento correspondiente. También funciona cuando superas la cantidad mínima para portes gratis.

SObre todo me interesa la opción de descuento por volumen automáticamente.

Alguien puede ayudarme?

Gracias

Doesnt update checkout until order has been confirmed, meaning customer has to pay more at checkout but sees discount on invoice which isnt much use as they've already paid?!

is there any way to get this to update the price at checkout??
