Automatic Membership Discounts or Coupons

Post by dandersonMLT » Thu Jan 10, 2019 3:37 am

We are looking to add a membership option to our site.
We'd like to provide free shipping and a flat discount percentage on all orders for any customer with a membership.

Does AbleCommerce support something like this natively?
We are running AbleCommerce GoldR10SR1 (build 8620)

I see where I can restrict coupons to members of groups, but wasn't sure if there was a way to make them automatically apply if the user is logged in and has a membership.
Also, there may be a better way other than coupons that I'm not aware of.

Thanks!

Hi there,

You should look into using the Discounts feature, located next to Coupons in the menu. These can be set up and assigned to groups. The discount behavior will show the discount while the user is logged in, and it will apply automatically.

For free shipping, you can create a new method and assign that to the member group as well. Only users of this group will see the free shipping method appear during checkout, but you might want to consider a minimum order amount, which is another setting from the shipping config page.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks
Katie
