Hello,

I want to use magento to build a daily deals website.  These are not group buying deals.
It is a very simple site with 1-3 deals everyday. The deals will timeout or sellout.
I have searched a lot for extensions for this purpose. None so far. I am aware there are groupon like extensions but that is not what I am after.

Any suggestions to guide me in the right direction?
Is magento not the solution for this site?
Is there some inbuilt feature in magento that enable me to build a daily deal site? I could have missed something.

please help :(

Hi,

This can be done through daily deal extension from Adolmedia.

It can be used either as groupon clone or genric daily deal website without group buying concept.

Magento Daily Deals Extensions - ONLY $39 - View Detail Now:http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/catalog/product/view/id/16633/

Daily deals extension : A product which is discounted on a webshop will be prominently noticed if it is attached to a countdown timer and promotional price that create a momentum and an urge for the customer to rush for it.

You can setup countdown timer for daily deal, weekly deal or for any time period you want. You are able to adjust the amount of product to sell during the promotion campaign.

What makes this extension essentially special and should-not-miss? The possibilities to create a separate page to list all ongoing deals with adequate promotion information and to select different configurations to match your own websites are believed to drive your decision.

IndiesWebs - 07 March 2013 05:18 AM

Hello,

Indieswebs has created Magento Daily Deals extension which allows a store owner to set one product as a special deal of the day every day. The extension takes a product from special products and sets it on homepage as a special deal of the day with a timer of hours/days set from admin. Deal ends; new product is selected; new deal starts!

Check out some of the features of this Extension:

• This extension will take a product from special products of the store and display it on homepage for a day as deal of the day. This one day time can be changed to any amount of time period.
• Once the product in deal of the day is sold out a new product is chosen at random and set as the new deal of the day.
• To display or hide the stock of the product can be set from backend based on how the stock is managed.
• Admin can set to perform specific actions when the counter of daily deals reaches zero or when the deal expires.
• The “Daily Deal” section on frontend consists of various fields:
- Product Image
- Short description of the product
- A link to product detail page for additional information on the product
- Original price of the product and the new special price
- The timer that counts down the deal’s active time
- Product’s remaining stock
- Add to cart button which again links to the product’s detail page
- Custom welcome text displayed in the first line. It can be set from the admin area.

Thank you for the help

Why not just create an on-sale today category. This is how we do it with a script that adds/removes the products on sale automatically to/from the category, it is also how the top sites do it. We find it easier to manage just setting the special from price and date.

You can definitely use Magento for creating a deals website. In fact Magento can be used for any type of service, whether it is for a blog, news or ecommerce. All you need is to use appropriate plugin or do your own custom work. Use following extension to create a deals website.
