Easily offer a discount based on the basket subtotal with this MIVA Merchant module. The
default is to calculate product charges in the specified category(ies) (including attribute charges) to determine the total. You can
optionally include non-product charges in the calculation. You can also use the wildcard *
instead of category codes and all products in the
store will be discounted.
In admin you, the store owner, configures the trigger levels (amount needed to activate the discount) and the corresponding percentage off. You can designate 1 - 10 trigger levels so that you can vary the percentage discount based on the amount spent. You then include a list of category codes (or *) that will be used in the calculation. You can even set an expiration date for the sale. When the date is reached, the discounts will automatically stop. You can also restrict the discount to the customers in a list of price groups. This can be an include list or an exclude list. For example, if you do not want to give your price group customers an extra discount, you simply make an exclude list of price groups. You can also reverse the amount and make it a surcharge for a specific list of categories. This is useful if you have a materials surcharge that effects a specific group of products and they are in a specific category.
The discount amount will appear during checkout on the screen after the customer has
entered their shipping method. This allows Merchant to include (optionally) any miscellaneous fees or coupons redeemed on the Shipping - Payment selection screen. Optionally, you can display the discount in the basket prior to checkout. If you are using the price group restriction feature, the prior to checkout display will only show if the customer is logged in as the price group status has to be determined.
Use this module for category-wide or store-wide discounts. Setup a sale category or use it with existing categories.
This module is for MIVA Merchant 5.x. We also have the corresponding module for an older version of Merchant.
