Can coupons be configured for a specific item in a website. I know I can create a unique coupon for an item, but what stops someone from submitting that "coupon" for a discount on all the products on a site. Can it be specified only for certain items?

Discounts can be setup for individual items by using the-

parameter, where "MUSICCD" is the classification of the item you are wanting to give a coupon on. Only the products with the classification of MUSICCD would be discounted after that applet has been loaded. For individual items, just make one item per classification, and that'd do it.

Hope this helps.

To just add a little more info....

At this time, coupons created from the Coupon Manager feature of the uShop Control Panel will apply to any products purchased...and unfortunately, cannot be configured to apply to only to one product. But we'll add that ability to the Future Feature Wish List.

In the main time, other options you may want to look at is the uShopDiscount applets... in particular, the uShopDiscount2 applet which allows you to setup discounts for different "classifications" of products. So technically, you could give the product that you want to discount a unique classification (via the "classification" parameter)... and then setup the uShopDiscount2 applet to discount that product only.
