Recently, we have decided to reorg some categories and in doing so, we are wanting to change from a category discount to a product discount, but are running into a couple of problems.
1) Based on the WIKI, a product discount can be entered as part of a form where "no category discounts" is chosen in the category admin page. Unfortunately, this does not yield the expected result as shown by the graphic in the WIKI (i.e., No "Product Discount: -$X.XX" amount in the cart).
Below is the test code & image of the result:
<input type="hidden" name="1:name" value="Spirit-bead (Wolf)"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="1:category" value="Spirit Beads"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="1:price" value="34.99"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="discount_quantity_percentage" value="Quantity Discount(allunits|5-10|10-15)"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="coupon" value="Spirit-Beads"></input>
The WIKI would suggest this is the proper way to go about setting a product discount, so I am wondering what I might be doing wrong here?
2) In testing the product discount, I also tested a category discount (i.e., deleted the hidden form tag for "Quantity Discount" and setting up a similar category discount on the category admin page. Yay! it works, but results in an unanticipated result: it includes some strange characters after the $-amount of the discount (as shown by the red arrow in the image below).
So, in summary, I'm looking for some assistance in two things:
1) Getting the "product discount" to function properly
2) Eliminating the unusual characters that show up after the dollar amounts in the cart display.
Thanks in advance for your help.
EDIT - If it helps, here is the live page which I was editing to test - https://nicolpawn.ca/pawn.php/spirit-beads
(currently set for category discounts).
