"Membership discount?"

Posted by Jen [jen@livingclassrooms.org] on at 04:37 PM
I configured uShop Lite for a tallship's store a few months ago, they like it and are interested in purchasing it. The ship has a membership program & members receive a 10% discount in the actual Ship's Store. They would like members to automatically receive this discount in the online store also. Non-members would not receive any discount.
Is there an applet to make this happen? Maybe a Member checkbox that would subtract 10% from the order?
Thanks so much.

"Membership Discount"

Hi Jen,

That's a good idea. Unfortunately we don't have an applet that does that. I will enter the request in the future features database for a future release of uShop. I glad they like uShop Lite.

Dis is very easy. Make a protect area on your site where only member can login. Place a page there with the discount applet and set the value to 10%. After member have login at this page. They will get 10% of there order.

Sorry Uburst, but there are workarrounds to solve some problems.

Yes, don't forget about uShop's flexibility. That is, you may be able to set something up with regular HTML to give the preferred members a discount.

For example: Say you want to give preferred customers a 20% discount. You could use regular HTML to say "Preferred Members Click Here"...and then link the preferred customers to a page with the uShopDiscount1 applet on it set to 20%. You may even be able to set something up - external to uShop - in which the preferred customers would have to enter a password (or coupon number) before being able to access the page that actually has the uShopDiscount1 applet on it.

another option for those more savy and have the features... try dynamicly adding the discount applet when a member signs in... this is fairly easy with PHP or Perl.
