My Quantity Discounts contribution permits you to offer discounts that are structured many different ways:

* By total number of items purchased
* By number of items purchased, counting per item
* By number of items purchased, counting per category
* Counting by items or by number of dollars spent, in any of the ways above
* Specifying the discount as a percentage, a flat dollar figure or dollars per item

The contribution is here:
http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6751




Is it possible to discount different items.. example...

just to add to the explination, the site is going to be selling bumper stickers(yes most are pretty funny)

each sticker has a different saying If someone buys 1 my price is $3 however if someone buys 3 I need to discount it to $5... (but obviously no one is going to buy 3 of the same kind their goin to pick 3 different saying... I hope I explained that right...

Thanks

Rob


Thanks Rob

Yes, there are many ways to "count" (by item, category or total number of items in the cart). Download it and read the documentation and you'll see.

I appriciate your response and yes I should have downloaded it before asking for support however I've downloaded about 6 different cart software in the past week trying to find something with support so I figured it good to ask first this time...

I'll be better able to upload it when I get home from work and Ill check it out. Appriciate the contribution...

If you are using CCGV and Quantity Discounts, you should install the change described here:

Are you aware of any modules which would fulfil this?

I've written a bunch of discounting logic for Zen Cart that I will, at some point, probably migrate to osCommerce.

That sounds very interesting. It seems that some very basic discounting is lacking for osc, such as 3for2 and the per item discounts as I described above.

Thanks

I am trying to install the discount into my cart. I am running osCommerce v2.2 RC2. I have downloaded the mod and tried to install it by uploading the unzipped folder to the root level of my store. I don't get the choice of the quantity discounts in the modules/order total. Am I missing a step?

Yes. The directories from the zip should be identical to where you place the files in your cart.

I installed this contrib and it works great! /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
However I also wanted to include the marketing text, example 1 as shown on your demo website. Could you give an indication as to where in the catalog/product-info. php the code should be inserted? I have no knowledge of php so I am having some difficulty finding that....
Thanks in advance!
Shirley

Try just above the end of the table at the bottom of the file.

Thanks!
I've added it just below the line " This product was added to our catalog...." around line 210.

Kind regards,
Shirley

In my cart i want customer who buy any three shirts from categories

23 34 and 65 to receive a discount.

at the moment as per the current addon setup if categoeis 34 and 65 are within cat 23 then this will work but

the three categories 23, 34, and 65 are stand alone categories.

Anyone know how to do this?

Also i only want this discount to apply to a specific list of categories and not every category in the cart.

How can i set that up.

If you're using my Quantity Discounts module, you can use the function "exclude_category()" to exclude specific categories (or just include the 3 you want and exclude all others). Please read the help on my home page; there are examples of how to do this.

I have installed the mod, everything looks to be installed correctly I think my levels are set correctly but I see nothing about discounts at the order confirmation page just seems to not be there. I did accidentally install the version for ocs 3.0 and even though I made a backup it didn't restore correctly. so I installed the one for ocs 2.2 deleted the extra files and directories from the 3.0 install, installed the correct ones. It shows up installed on my mod list, allows me to edit the levels, but doesn't show up at check out.
