Special Offers without voucher code

Submitted by bat on Mon, 2015-09-28 17:22 in

Hi David,
Some of my merchants have special offers but don't have a code (i.e. they are automatically applied) but I'd still like to add them to the website. They also tend to have a direct url to the offer landing page.

I was wondering if it's possible to add special offers to the voucher codes section without having to enter a voucher code and if there could be a box where I could enter the landing page url so that the user can go direct to that particular offer?
I'm running the latest release beta.

Many thanks!

Hello bat,

I'm going to look at this in the beta, a number of people have asked about expanding the voucher code functionality - as it stands it is very tightly integrated with the product database - the objective of the voucher code functionality is to enable price comparison to include voucher code discounts.

Another good reason for loosening up the functionality is that a very large number of voucher codes are almost impossible to codify against matching products. Anybody who has tried working with voucher code feeds will no doubt have come across things like code values of "N/A" or "NONE REQUIRED", and then of course things like "Exclusions apply" or "Selected BRAND_NAME printers over £100" which mean that you can't programmatically apply the code to qualifying products!

That would be great, David. Those merchants do make it hard work, don't they?! ;-)

I know in the past I've tried the %nocode% value but if I have more than one offer for the same merchant, I'm unable to use the same code twice as it only directs me to the list of appliable product results for one of the offers.
