Volume Discount Coupons Pretty

WooCommerce Volume Discount Coupons is an extension for WooCommerce, providing automatic discounts and coupons based on the quantities of products in the cart.

Volume discounts are normally of little use unless customers are made aware of them. This extension provides an excellent solution to this need, allowing to display discounts directly on products when they apply.


Features

  • Automatically apply discounts based on minimum and/or maximum quantity criteria defined in coupons
  • Let customers apply volume discount coupons
  • Volume discounts can be defined for specific products and product categories
  • Directly show discounts when they apply to products
  • New shortcode that renders pretty coupons in various colors.


Summary

This extension allows to apply discounts to products in a customer’s cart based on the quantities that are purchased. The discounts can be shown directly on the products when they apply, a free-form description can be used for that purpose as well as an automated note.

The discount information can be rendered automatically for applicable products in the shop, in product category displays, product sets based on tags, product archives and individual product pages. Options allow to choose where the information should be rendered automatically.

Here is an example showing different products in the shop, displaying the free-form description or the automatic discount note:

    Just bought the pluggin. I’m having a problem. Trying to create a BOGO 50% OFF. However, when I add more product to the cart, its taking 50% off the whole cart, not allowing for 50% off the second product. I bought this pluggin simply for this purpose.

      Hi Dan,

      You have to use a Product % Discount instead of a Cart % Discount. This is a standard setting for WooCommerce and I’d recommend you to review the section on Coupon Management to better understand how coupons are set up in general.

      Cheers

    Gentlemen, I have never been able to update my Volume Discount Coupons for WooCommerce Version 1.1.1 to version 1.1.3. Each time I go to install new plug-in selecting (browse install zip) “codecanyon-5539403-woocommerce-volume-discount-coupons” I come up with an error message. I have perused your documentation but have not found anything specific for updating version 1.1.3. I would like to note that I have not uninstalled version 1.1.1 prior to attempting to install 1.1.3 as I have been afraid that I was lose all of my current discounts that are set up, some of which are specific to clients.

    Would you please advise how to correct this problem or point me to the documentation that gives a step-by-step procedure on how to upgrade.

    Lastly may I ask if you plan on an automatic update in the future?

    • kento April 14, 2015 at 11:03 am #

      Hi Will,

      You must deactivate and delete the previous version before you install the new one. I would recommend to put your site in maintenance mode while you do that (recommended: http://wordpress.org/plugins/ultimate-maintenance-mode/). We don’t have immediate plans to support automatic updates for it, but I appreciate the suggestion. I hope that helps, please let us know if you need further help.

      Cheers

        Hello Kento,

        Further to your response shown below, when deleting version 1.1.1 in order to update to 1.1.3, is it necessary to manually save the information on my existing discounts setup in 1.1.1 or is the data stored automatically and migrated into 1.1.3 once installed?
        Thanks,
        Will

        • kento April 16, 2015 at 6:57 pm #

          Hi Will,

          There’s no migration involved nor do you need to manually save information, simply the plugin replacement and you should use the maintenance mode to avoid restricted discounts to be used while the plugin is not active.

          Cheers

    Hi I’ve set a coupon with PRODUCT % for a particular variation of plant – Aubrieta Kitte (the Variation being the pot size) #5325
    All goes well when a customer orders the minimum number of Aub. Kitte but then every time they order a different plant, but of the same pot size they get that discount applied to it. (Even though the variation for that plant’s pot size is a different hash tag number).
    Is there any way round this?
    Thanks

  4. Peter Reason May 23, 2015 at 8:43 pm #

    Thanks, I was NOT putting the product on the Usage Restriction tab AND the Volume Discount tab – when I did, the product names appeared twice in the automatically generated Volume Discount Coupons which looked very strange as the product names were really long.
    Now I am using my own images and it’s working very nicely,
    thanks.
    The only thing lacking now in the Woocommerce Coupons is the ability to not allow a specific other coupon to be applied when setting up a new coupon.
    Thanks for your prompt reply

    • kento May 24, 2015 at 9:27 am #

      Thanks Peter, I’ll check what you mention about the duplicate product names.

      Regarding the exclusion of coupons, you might find WooCommerce Coupon Exclusions useful.

      Cheers

    Are you sure the plugin is working correct with WooCommerce 2.3.11 ?
    When i set a discount for 11 to 100 items to 20%
    http://www.biomaatschappij.nl/product/geldzorgen-in-de-zorg/
    It is not shown in the cart, and the alert message is shown many times…

    Please let me know is there is an update.

    • kento July 2, 2015 at 10:02 am #

      Hi Daan,

      Yes, what exact coupon settings are you using please?

      Cheers

      • Daan Schaeffer July 3, 2015 at 8:28 am #

        Hi Kento,

        For now i deactivated the plugin because it is not working correctly.

        I had several which are alle as following: (its in dutch but you can see whats happening)
        Title:
        20% korting op cahiers uit 2013, 2014 en 2015
        Description:
        Koop 11 voor € 6,00 per stuk en bespaar 20%
        Type:
        Product % korting
        Amount:
        20
        Category:
        2013 – 2014 – etc
        Min:
        11
        Max:
        100
        – Auto
        – sum
        – show on product page

        • kento July 6, 2015 at 11:54 am #

          Hi Daan,

          Thanks for the details, you have several categories which you have set under Usage Restriction > Product categories. This is to limit the coupon to those products in those categories which is ok. But have you also chosen the appropriate categories under Volume Discount > Product categories?

          After you have checked that and if you still don’t get the expected results, please forward admin access to support at itthinx dot com and indicate the coupon which doesn’t seem to produce your expected results and a link to this comment as well as a short explanation of how what you see is different from what you expect based on the settings used. We’ll have a look at the coupon settings and test it for you.

          Cheers

          • Daan Schaeffer July 8, 2015 at 12:07 pm #

            Yes i have both. First i hade only Volume Discount > Product categories, but now i also added the samen categories under Usage Restriction > Product categories.
            Still the same result. In the cart i get plenty of messages ‘Couponcode succesvol toegepast.’ but nothing is applied in fact.

            I’m sorry but i can not give you admin access to the admin.
            I’m think my settings are oke.

            Gr, Daan

            • kento July 8, 2015 at 12:32 pm #

              Hi Daan,

              We need to be able to have a look at your settings and test it to help. You can provide access to a staging site which replicates your production site, this would be preferred anyway. What you indicate could be a plugin conflict and we would need to be able to deactivate other plugins to check what’s interfering. Once you have set up a staging site, please send admin access for that to support at itthinx dot com and make sure to include a link to this comment.

              Cheers

    Hi,

    I boght the plugin today, and installed it, but now I don’t see anywhere the functionalities of the plugin no. coupons nothing. The only thing that is available is in backend on left side under WooCommerce menu, there is a “Volume Discount Coupons” tab, when I click it the only thing I get is the Inline styles section, and nothing else.

    Where is everything else, where is Volume Discount section to coupons?

    I thank you in advance for help

    • antonio July 24, 2015 at 1:44 pm #

      Hi Marjan,
      when you create a new coupon, you have available a new section in the coupon edit page (in Woocommerce->Coupons editing/adding a coupon)
      Regards,
      Antonio B.

      • Marjan July 24, 2015 at 2:53 pm #

        Hi Antonio, I believe it is something so simple as that, But the problem is that I don’t have anywhere any option to create new coupon, nor I have the menu Woocommerce->Coupons editing/adding a coupon)!

        I don’t know why it isn’t there?

        As I mentioned there is only a tab “Volume Discount Coupons”, when I click it, the only thing I get is the Inline styles section, and nothing else!?

        • antonio July 25, 2015 at 7:03 am #

          Sorry,
          the menu is Woocommerce->Coupons. In this submenu you have a table with all the coupons. If you edit or add a coupon you have a section with new fields.

            Antonio,

            here is what I see in my backend:
            http://screencast.com/t/oc3UlKFZucz

            there is no “Coupons” option. It seems like the plugin doesn’t work on my installation.
            What would be the solution for this?

            Thank you

            • antonio July 28, 2015 at 2:18 pm #

              Probably you have a problem with your woocommerce version installed, because ‘Coupons’ submenu is added by Woocommerce as default.
              You can try to disable all plugins relating to coupons and woocommerce extensions (maybe a plugin is creating a conflict). If it doesn’t solve the problem, be sure you have installed the last version of woocommerce.
              Regards,
              Antonio B.

              • Marjan July 29, 2015 at 7:59 pm #

                Antonio, I tried everything I could think of. I disabled all plugins related to woocommerce. And tried even with default twenty fourteen theme. The version of woocommerce I use is tha latest one 2.3.13. But there is still no change.
                Is there anything I am missing here, what else can I do?
