### [vQmod] Enter Percentage for Discounts & Specials

If you want to be able to apply discounts & specials by percentage, this is a quick mod to allow it. This particular mod works by taking the percentage at the time of entry and converting it to a value when the save button is clicked.

Example:
If you have a product that is \$125
and you want to give 10% off you can simply type "10%" in the discount/special price field. When you click save, it will convert it to \$12.50. Then subtract that from the normal price. Making the Special price of 10% off of 125 = \$112.50. The next time you edit that product, the special/discount will show "12.50". So the percentage is calculated at the time of saving. If you want to change it to 20% there, then just replace 12.50 with 20% and it will do it for you again.

WORKS WITH ALL 1.4.x AND 1.5.x VERSIONS

Hi Q,
Can it make the percentage stay active, so that if the product price is changed, the discounts will automatically 'update' - not actually update, but remain a percentage of the price, no matter what the price is.
Thanks

Not with this mod.. this was only a quick hack to allow you to enter it in percentages. When you click save it stores the data as the pre-calculated value. For something to store as the percentage, that requires a much larger job as other areas on both the admin and the catalog side for price calculations would need to change

How do you begin to use this? Where do you upload the XML file to?

Ok I did that, uploaded VQMOD to the root with 777 permissions. Went to the site /vqmod/install and it does not give any messages, error or otherwise. Nothing in the vqcache folder, either...
