CartGenie allows you to create multiple promo codes so you can offer discounts to your customers in many ways! Promotion codes can be structured for a set dollar amount or as a percentage, and you get to control the purchase minimum and expiration date of any promotion.
Once you have set up your promotions, distribute the code to your customers. Your customers can enter the code on the shopping cart page of your site in the Promo Code box during checkout (be sure you have the “Display Promo Box” field in the the Profile Manager set to “Yes”).
In CartGenie Desktop Engine, go to Commerce> More> Promotions and select either “$ Discounts” or “% Discounts”:
PROMO CODE: The Promo Code is a unique identification for the promotion.
Example: A code called XMAS03 could be used to represent Christmas 2003.
PROMO DESCRIPTION: The Promo Description is the name of the actual promotion. The promo description is visible to customers once they enter the code in the Promo Code box of the shopping cart page.
Example: Code XMAS03 might have a description of “Christmas 2003 10% Discount”
Promo Amount Field (In “$ Discounts” only) – Stores a fixed dollar amount to be discounted off of the order. The amount must be entered as a negative.
Promo Percent (In “% Discounts” only) – Stores a percentage discount to be discounted off of the order. The percentage must be entered as a negative.
PURCHASE MINIMUM: The Purchase Minimum is the amount that must be purchased in order to receive the discount.
Example: $100.00 means that the customer must purchase at least $100.00 in order to receive the discount. The Web site will not allow the discount to occur unless the Purchase Minimum is achieved.
EXPIRATION DATE: The Expiration Date is the date that the promotion ends. The system will not allow the discount to be taken after the expiration date.
