CartGenie Tip: Promotions & Discount Codes

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.


CartGenie Tip: Backorder Report

Using the CartGenie Backorder Report you can see all of your orders and items that are on backorder.

To review your Backorder Report, open CartGenie Desktop Engine and go to Orders> Back Orders:


CartGenie Merchant Showcase:

CartGenie Merchant uses the New Products feature available in the Profile Manager.


The New Products page dynamically displays a list of categories and sub-categories where new products have been added to CartGenie within the past 30 days.  This is a dynamic feature, which means no action is required by the CartGenie administrator in order to determine which products are considered new.

When the field is set to Yes, a link called New Products will appear in the top Navigation Bar which takes the user to the New Products page.  When set to No, the link will not be displayed.



CartGenie Tip: Customization Manager

The CartGenie Desktop Engine Customization Manager allows you to define certain aspects of your site in just a few clicks!

In the Customization Manager you can add images to your top nav and left nav menus, add custom Order Checkout fields, define the width and height of your storefront, and a lot more:


CartGenie Tip: Adding Your Company Logo to Customer Receipts

You can quickly add a company logo to the receipt  your customer prints from their Account page:

1. Create a logo file and name it ReceiptCompanyLogo.gif.
2. Upload the logo file to the CartGenie/images folder of your ftp site.

Your customer receipts will now display the logo.



CartGenie Tip: Assigning Tax Rates by State & Country

CartGenie enables you to determine the tax rates for each state in the USA and the tax rate for a country.  Tax rates are applied during checkout and are applied based upon the ship-to location for an order.

For example, if you wanted to apply sales tax for orders shipped to New York but no other states, you would enter the tax rate beside New York and set the tax rate to zero for all other states.

International Orders:
If you wish to charge sales tax on international orders, you must define the countries you will ship-to in the Country Manager by setting the display for those countries to Yes.  Next, enter the tax rates for each country and select Save.
