Our client wants to run custom promos and gift certificates. I know FC doesn't support certificates, so our thinking is we'll run our own cert database, that the user can apply to their order using an intermediate "pre-checkout" page, which would then click through to the FC checkout page once all the necessary price/qty modifications had been made in the cart. Does this sound reasonable? I don't like the extra step, but I can't think of a better way.
Assuming this works, we'll want the pre-checkout page to say something like "please review your order" then list the current cart contents. I assume there is a way to retrieve the cart contents and format the results into a custom page. Can you please confirm?
What would be the best way of deducting the gift cert amount from the order? Does DC accept product line items with negative values?
Sorry if this is redundant - I've seen gift cert posts in the past, but nothing definitive.
