I’ve just spent ages setting up various coupons and could not get the damn things to work - they simply didn’t appear in my cart. It was only when a colleague suggested going right through the checkout process that I saw the coupons appearing.
I think it would be a lot better to be able to see the discount in the shopping cart as soon as it has been applied. It would also really help to be able to have discounts saying something along the lines of “spend over $50 to qualify for free shipping” in the cart as well in an effort to drive more cross and upsells which appear in the cart area. Is this something that could be looked into for future releases?
On the same subject, I tried to create a discount saying buy any two of product X and receive 10% off anything in the product Y range, but was unable to. Is this possible, or have I missed something?
