Please Please can some one give us the coding to make the gift / discount vouchers part of the checkout process instead of leaving it in the cart.
My customers just aren't seeing it, even redirecting them isn't working.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm also looking for this solution.

I've found that a gift voucher or a coupon can ONLY be added
after you've bought successfully a gift voucher and continue the
check out process.

Otherwise there is no place for a gift voucher or coupon adding
in the normal check out process of v1.5x, at least I couldn't find
from the demo v1.5.
Why? It's funny.

I placed it in the welcome message and the description. I think it should probaly be in the checkout as well. Maybe the checkout process should start with view cart so they can apply the coupons. It is confusing a lot of people.

well the problem is that the checkout button from the top shopping cart goes to the checkout instead of the shopping cart page and the coupon is on the shopping cart page. But it's there weather or not you've purchased a voucher.

I can't understand the reasoning from admin "that there isn't room for it in the checkout page"

its in the checkout page of 1.4 so whats the difference.

This is the reason Im not using 1.5 and sticking with 1.4, I rely heavily on discount coupons

well that's not the only reason. payment methods like paypal express and google checkout go from the shopping cart page and skip the checkout procedure all together how would you allow those people to use a discount code? No matter where you put it someone is not going to like it. We know it's been in pretty much every position possible. The biggest problem is that in 1.5 Daniel made the checkout button skip the cart.

I use neither of those payment providors, it a shame that its not an option to either have it on the cart or the checkout, or even simpler - add it to both, then if customers use one or the other - EVERYONE can find it !!

For the coupon fix:-
Could you not just change the Checkout link to actually just take people to the Cart page?

It involves changing on line of code in the header file
catalog/view/theme/default/template/common/header.tpl around line 107

Code: Select all

  <div class="links"><a href="<?php echo $home; ?>"><?php echo $text_home; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $wishlist; ?>" id="wishlist_total"><?php echo $text_wishlist; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $account; ?>"><?php echo $text_account; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $cart; ?>"><?php echo $text_cart; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $checkout; ?>"><?php echo $text_checkout; ?></a></div>
to

Code: Select all

  <div class="links"><a href="<?php echo $home; ?>"><?php echo $text_home; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $wishlist; ?>" id="wishlist_total"><?php echo $text_wishlist; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $account; ?>"><?php echo $text_account; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $cart; ?>"><?php echo $text_cart; ?></a><a href="<?php echo $cart; ?>"><?php echo $text_checkout; ?></a></div>
Basically the second last checkout changed to cart

Just a though....

Cheers,

Michael

I agree. The gift cert/voucher should actually be a form of payment. This is the only really out of place component on opencart. If it is not in the next update I will be attempting to modify this myself.

Hi all,

I have made the change to my header.tpl as described. My only thought now is the Checkout button on what I can only describe as the mini cart still points directly to checkout instead of the shopping cart. Does anyone know how to change this? I am not sure.

Thank you,

Jeremy.

There is a free vQmod in the vQmods section of the Free Contributions that warns users if they click the Header checkout link.

Just going to update it so it applies to the MiniCart Drop down as well.

Hi,

I'm not using vQmod right now. Does anyone know how this can be changed without?

Thanks,

Jeremy

download the vqmod files anyway and look at their contents

search = code to find and replace
if offset exists as part of the search tag = also replace this number of lines after the search tag

I added a message on the Checkout page with a link to the Shopping Cart page :
http://www.flowershopputney.co.uk/index ... t/checkout

Its a bit crude but at least it gives people who have a coupon or voucher code a chance to redeem it and if not they can just continue with the checkout process!

Let me know if you have a better way of doing this please, I'd be quite happy to pay for an extension etc as usual.

Cheers

Hi Warren, I would like to do the same as you, very new to all this, which file did you edit and what code did you add in.

Many Thanks,
Lee

I have added a message and link at the top of the checkout page prompting anyone with a voucher on a clients site:

If you have a discount or gift voucher please redeem it by going to the Shopping Cart and entering your code - click here

You can see it here:

http://www.dorchestersaddlery.co.uk/ind ... t/checkout

FYI - I did this by going to modules --> welcome

Then I added new module (module2) and positioned it [Content Top] on the [Checkout] page using the drop downs.

When I try to buy a voucher on your site I get:

Just wanted to add my voice to the need for coupon codes at checkout. It's standard on most every site that supports coupons. This being the case, people are going to be confused until it's there in OC.

Thanks to everyone who's supplying patches in the mean time.
