How to use

After you install you will the new tab under promo

The Promo Name and Promo Code are for your reference, the code is there if we need to create a promo that is out side of the scope of the program and I need some way of referencing it.

The Promo Type will grow as I add new features. The following are enabled

  • Value based. Works with “From → To” value based exception. They must be entered directly into the database as of June 2010.
  • Entity based exception (X for Y) This will lookup a product in the Group table and insert the product form the item_entity table into the cart
  • Promo Code - This one will look up a coupon and either add a product based on the coupon, or even apply the coupon code!

Attribute_set based. This has been started, but not implemented.

  • Product Attribute based. Discussion is underway to implement this. It will require entering the Attribute_Code somewhere. The code would be looked up and the item would be inserted.
  • Excepted exceptions. I am going to make provisions for excepted exceptions. AT the moment there is a hard code for Gift Certifications to be excepted on all rules

Use Rules Dates: This will use the dates from the rules table. I can also use other items from these rules as time and needs prescribe. (Not implemented)

Associated Rule: This is a drop down of all the active rules. This will connect the promo with the Magento rule. The “Rules” on the Magento Rules are ignored.

Enabled: This will turn on and off the promotion
