Order Level Discounts

It looks like from a discount perspective I can apply discounts at the category level and then the products inherit the discount from the category.

In most e-comm platforms there also exists the concept of an order level discount that is not tied to the product but to the cart. I might be missing something but it does not look like Foxy Cart supports order level discounts. These are the types of promos I would want to run:

$ / % off
$ / % off with a minimum threshold
Free Shipping with minimum threshold
Free Product with a minimum threshold

Those are the basics then add these options:
All users get it no promo code required
Promo code required
Limit # of Redemptions total
Limit # of redemptions per customer

I am getting around it by applying a flat % discount to my default category and applying to all products but that is not ideal.

    Hey Andrew.

    Sorry we missed this post somehow... We're definitely aware of this limitation and plan on improving it after the current restructuring described here:

    http://wiki.foxycart.com/feature_requests

    Your solution is exactly what we'd recommend for now.

    As for promo codes and shipping adjustments, those are separate features that we will also be adding in the future. There's a lot of work to be done, but we're committed to the cause. Thanks for posting and keep the ideas coming.
