Is it possible to enter coupons at checkout?

I’m just getting started with Magento, so I might be missing something, but is there any way to display the “Enter Coupon Code” box on the one page checkout?

Right now customers can only apply coupon codes on the shopping cart page, and I think some customers wouldn’t necessarily notice it there, and expect it to be on the checkout page instead.

Thanks!

I agree that it would be better to enter the coupon code at checkout. If someone proceeds to checkout without viewing their cart they would completely miss the spot to enter a coupon code. I use these codes for promotions frequently so I am wondering if you ever figured out a solution or got a response? Thanks!

Totally agree… I was just testing the coupon I just created and thought it really strange that on checkout I wasn’t given a place to enter my coupon. It needs to be in both places.. not having it in the checkout process is not expected at all.

Well, we can add coupon box in the payment checkout step where use can use coupon before paying .. but one problem is that Once you enter the code.. on checkout page it does not redirect you to shopping cart page where I believe it shows the updates of total and messages for coupon.. Here is the steps I follow to display coupon box to display on checkout payment step :

1. copied coupon xml code to checkout payment step in checkout.xml and create new file for that with same form action in case you need different design there
2. create new coupon file in checkout/cart folder
3. call the pthml file in payment step using getChildHtml.

That’s it smile

Magento doesn’t support coupons in checkout for default.

We recommend PrimeCheckout http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/customer-experience/checkout/primecheckout-7432.html which includes the coupon code in the checkout and offers a new approach to checkout with focus on usability, with optimal user experience.
