Automatic 10% discount on site
« on: September 03, 2015, 17:41:14 pm »
Our client who has a Joomla 1.5 / VM1 shop (I have been wanting to migrate to latest version) who wants a 10% discount on the site. They want it to be added automatically every time/order. Usaully on the older sites we use Awocoupon and let the user type it in manually.

The only way I can imagine doing this is by going through all the prices and knock 10% off, leaving a note saying online prices are 10% cheaper.

Is there another way for the discount to be added automatically every time? Or is the method I suggested above really the only option?

Hello

Create a couple of usergroups,

User_10%
User_20% ....

And assign a discount to these user groups. I don´t think will see that there is a discount. The price will just be lower for the products when displayed.

Will it be possible to add it to the normal registered group? As it will effect all users of the site.

Hopefully though I will be migrating the site when we come to an agreement with the client.

Hello

As I remember it you can also do this to the default user Group.

I've made the coupon, but as far as I can tell you can't make it to be added automatically. Is this possible? How can it be done if so please?

I found the way to do it in the shopper groups section of Virtuemart. No need for any coupons.
