If a coupon code is entered and then the quantity changes in the shopping cart, the coupon gets applied more than once. I have the coupon set up under Conditions(Optional) as Total Amount. If I add a new item it comes in a full price, but if I change the quantity of the original item, the quantity updates at the discounted rate. You can test it on my site using webthank5.
This coupon is set up as:
Discount Value 5.00 $
Redemption Limit 5
Conditions (Optional) Total Amount
is greater than 6.00
Should I use other options than the ones above? I expected a total amount coupon to show up on its own line below the total rather than changing an item price.December 21, 2009 at 11:57 pm #16890
am investigating this one.December 22, 2009 at 6:54 am #16891
Customer should not be allowed to change the quantity after a coupon is applied to the cart. The application of coupon code may sound very simple but it’s actually not that simple because there are so many ways the customer can scam the system when you open the discount option. From a shop admin point of view you may not think about this much but some customers will try various dodgy things. Anyway, I have updated the cart so now it will show an warning when a customer tries to change item quantity after a coupon code has been applied to the cart.November 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm #16892chriseggMember
So I have been trying to figure this feature out! I understand the scam protection that you are providing with the complex coupon system, and I appreciate that!
Is there any way to keep the system from reseting the cart wen someone tries to change the quantity after discount? I there a way to make the warning bigger or stand out more? It seems that people do not notice the warning because it is in the same location, has same font size and color as the other warning “hit enter to update cart”.

Yeah you can make the warning whatever color you want and also use a larger font site. Open the “eStore_cart.php” file and look for the following line:
$output .= '<br /><span id="pinfo" style="display: none; font-weight: bold; color: red;">'.ESTORE_QUANTITY_CHANGE_NOT_ALLOWED.'</span>';
See the bit of inline CSS there? change it to however you want the warning text to look like.
