I have 6 categories and want to offer a discount using a code. Do I tick the categories I want to allow the discount to apply to or the category I don't want the discount to apply to?

Hi A,

This is an Ecwid Forum response and I'm not sure if it is on target for your requirement? How to use discount codes?.

Let me know with a little more explanation if you wish to seek further.

Hi

No this isn't my issue.

As I said in my original post I have 6 categories and when I go into the discount code where I have a discount coupon code already set up, I want to limit which categories that the discount applies to (in my case 5 of the 6 categories can have the code applied, but the 6th - Clearance- cannot).



I don't know whether to click the 5 I DO want the discount to apply to or the 1 I DON'T want the discount to apply to.

Hope this helps! :-)

The discount coupons seem to apply to the categories marked. So it would be the "I do want..."

You can try this by turning on your sandbox in your PayPal payment section and trying it to be sure. (Turn your Store off for the few minutes of testing. Aaagh. That won't work as it prevents you from testing online. If you haven't already published it try it out to see in preview mode.).

There's no explicit description of this that I can find so it would be great if you can report back here, A.

Thanks. Maybe someone from Yola will put an explanation of how to do this on the tutorials area. Hopefully they will come back and answer it on here as well, as I can't be the only one who wants to be able to do this and is confused!

Thanks again

Hello A,

Have just found a post on this: http://www.ecwid.com/forums/showthrea.... Kess gave the response near the bottom of the page. Response #8.

You need to check the categories you wish to have with discounts.
