Hi I just bought your product and i am just wondering if there’s a way to test the functionality without having to buy a product.
I would like to test how a customer is receiving an email, the link, the whole buying process.. Of course the paying part with paypal can be override.

Hi, You can test the eStore using Paypal Sandbox or you can make a test product for .01 and run a test. You will need to make a purchase to test that everything is working properly. The plugin will not send out the emails if it can not verify the sale.

Hi Ivy, thanks for your response.
Is there a way in which I can send a coupon when someone buys for the first time and make the coupon expire in 3 days?March 30, 2010 at 7:26 am #19199
You can specify a special coupon in the “Special Offer Text” field of the “Coupons/Discounts” menu and the customer will get it only after the purchase but it is not possible to make time limiting coupons. You can only do usage limiting (e.g. 1 time use) coupons.April 9, 2010 at 6:53 pm #19200
Hi, but how will the system know it is a first time buyer?
Let’s say I want to make a coupon for a 10% off if someone buys a specific product and a 30% off if someone buy a quantity greater then $100.00.
At the thank you page the coupon will show there depending on the condition?April 10, 2010 at 1:09 am #19201
Nope, the special offer text box is there to offer a simple upsell option to your customer who just made a purchase. Placing the offer into the “Special Offer Text Box” guarantees that only a customer will see it after a payment (no one can view it by accidentally browsing to the Thank You page)April 10, 2010 at 2:21 pm #19202
Thanks for your response, if I understand correctly no one will see the Thank you page by accident. But my question is: Will the Tank you page know which coupon to show depending on what the client bought? If he bought less than 50.00 it will show one coupon and if he bought more than 50.00 will it show a different coupon?

I also want the coupon just to apply to certain products so I am using the condition that says Item Id equals to 1,2,3,4,5 (the item Id’s separated by commas) but it is not working. How does it has to be configured?April 11, 2010 at 1:04 am #19204
Nope, the special offer text box doesn’t have any condition checking.
You can’t put multiple item ids in the conditional coupon (It says “Item ID” not IDs). If you want a coupon to be applied to multiple items then add a prefix or suffix to these item names and use the “Item Name”, “Contains” condition.April 12, 2010 at 5:44 am #19205
Hi thanks for your response.
But I still don’t understand if I add several coupons, when a customer buys a product the special offer text box is going to appear but which of the coupons is going to show or it will display all the coupons I have.April 13, 2010 at 12:24 am #19206
Sorry for not explaining this better.
Did you know that you can display the “Transaction Result” on the “Thank You” page so the customer can download their digital goods without having to wait for the email?
The “Special Offer” text box is a way to add a custom message to that “Transaction Result” (potentially offering an upsell to your new customer).
Why add the content of the “Special Offer TextBox” to the transaction result? This is to ensure that the customer only sees it after a purchase (simply browsing to the “Thank You” page won’t reveal anything).
Why is this option in the “Coupons/Discounts” menu? Because it will potentially be used to offer a discount to the new customer. It’s an upsell technique… your customers are more likely to buy more from you if you give them some sort of discount offer for something.
Why is it there? Few of my customers wanted this and it sounded like a good feature so I added it.
With that said, Basically, whatever text or HTML you put in that box will be displayed to the customer regardless of what coupons you have configured (it has no relation with the coupons).April 13, 2010 at 6:32 pm #19207
Thanks, So just to wrap it up. No coupons are displayed in the Spacial Offer TextBox, unless I write down a coupon code? and it will always display the same thing?April 14, 2010 at 12:21 am #19208
Yes, that is correct.April 14, 2010 at 7:13 pm #19209
Thank you for your patience and time!!!!
