Want to provide a discount to your members? Here's how:
<form action="http://www.cartserver.com/sc/cart.cgi" method=POST> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" name="item" VALUE="s-8882^=discount=^Member #^10"> <br>Enter Your Membership Number:<input type=text name=op1> <input align="center" type="image" border="0" name="add" src="/images/addtocart.gif" /> </form>
This is, of course, a barebones example. You'll want to "dress it up" a bit, but hopefully you get the idea. The example is much more demonstrative with an item in the cart. Visit Wayne's Widget World and add an item to the cart to see the discount at work.
Give them a text box for entering their membership number. If you just want to give the 10 % to anyone who clicks "add to cart", leave the text box out. The description that you put in (currently "Member #") is what will show in the cart display, and in the final order you receive. It could be "Your discount" also.
The tag used in this example is:
<input type="hidden" name="item" value="s-8882^=discount=^Member #^10">
The =discount= will give a percent off the subtotal, with the percent being 10% in this example. You could also use =discountflat= to give a set dollar amount discount or coupon. The 10 with that tag would represent $10.00 off. Note that the cart will not allow the item subtotal to go below zero. We don't want to pay people for ordering!
There is a section in the cart config form for "merchant message" (advanced section). Put the discount tags in there like this:
Make it nice and bold as a promotion should be. Note that we had to replace the ^ character with %5E and the = character with %3D. This is to conform to URL encoding standards when talking to the cart via text link.
Old widget code:
<input type=hidden name=item value="s-8882^wid1^Wacky Widget^10.00^1">
New widget code that will exempt it from discount:
<input type=hidden name=item value="s-8882^=DF=wid1^Wacky Widget^10.00^1">
<input type="hidden" name="ignore_referer" value="http://www.cartserver.com/sc/asdemo.html">
This tag will prevent the "continue shopping" button of the cart display from returning people to this page. Rather, it will choose the last product page from which an item was added.
