Author Topic: Having a deal changes the Price on site when not the right day or time  (Read 5457 times)

I have a website where Daily deals are inserted everyday, sometimes in advance so less time is spent doing them in a rush.

Problem is, when I insert the daily deal discounted price and the times, the price of the object changes on the store itself, the original price is then stored in a wasPrice column until deal is over.

Ive managed to display the right price, but when the user adds to the cart, the deal price is added and not the original price. Which is fine when the deal is on, but If i was to insert deals in advance, the deals automatically appear on the website and not on the day the deal is.

Would there be any way to keep the original price displaying and adding to the cart until the day of the daily deal.
