Discounting a product with different discount types. Is the current behavior logical?

3 years ago
Hello.

My customer uses discounts for products in different ways as many others.

Current nopcommerce behavior:

Lets say the product costs 100$.
The store owner adds a product variation discount for 10$.
Total Cost: 90$.
The store owner adds a category discount(which the product is in) for 10$.
Total cost: 80$.
The store owner adds a total sum discount for 10$.
Total cost: 70$.

According to the information tag on the checkbox for cumulative discounts(in admin area), this is the way its supposed to work. It says the cumulative option only works for discounts with the same discount type.

But several of my customers here does not like this behavior. They dont want to add discounts on top of each other no matter what.

Is there anything in the roadmap regarding this, or has anyone else customized nopcommerce to work the way i want it to?

How do other store owners do this? Do they accept it?

Hello,

Have you checked this yourself? Because right now, discounts with distinct discount types are already cumulative in nopCommerce version 4.00

BTW, what do you mean by variation discount?

Thank you,

Variation is just "Product" i guess.

I tested several discount types on version 3.8 but it might be changes in 3.9 or 4.0?

Hello,

Yes there are changes in nopCommerce 4.00 and I think you should test it locally on your IIS to better understand. Because what I tested is working perfectly as per your need.

I tested it locally on 4.0 now, and it does not seem to work the way i want.

I dont want discounts to be added after the first one, even if the discount typew is not the same.

If i add one discount to a product directly with 10$, and then i use a discount code with 10% on total sum, it adds up, which i dont want.

Hello,

Are you saying that you want to restrict another discount if there is already one discount applied?

Yeah. If a customer adds a product to the shoppingcart which has a discount, the customer should not get a discount if they try to use a coupon code with lets say 10%. Thats really bad for business.
