    Default coupon for percent off of one item?

    Hi all,
    Just wondering if it's possible to create a coupon for 10% off one item in an order?

    thanks in advance!

    Must the order have just ONE item in it (in total number of items)... or are you requiring a coupon that applies to ONE item if that item is in an order (regardless of how many OTHER items there are in the order)?

    I would like a coupon that applies to ONE item in an order (regardless of how many OTHER items are in the order).
    I don't see how I can do this with the coupon code.
    Thanks for your reply!

    You can set up the coupon to apply to a single product, several different products, a category, several categories... etc .

    After you have created a coupon, click the RESTRICTIONS button in its edit console. Apply whatever limits you want/need .

    I don't see any options for this - only category and product restrictions, which have the same drop down menu.
    Is this just located in the restrictions area? The only thing I can select is a category for a product and allow or deny.
    Thanks again!

    In the PRODUCT RESTRICTIONS section, you FIRST have to choose the CATEGORY.

    So choose a category from the dropdown.

    HEY PRESTO - CLEVER ZENCART !!!

    It brings up another drop down - this time with the PRODUCTS in that category

    ok, thank you - but how does this allow the customer to choose which item she/he would like 10% off of?
    Does the cart just automatically take 10% off of only one item?
    I just tested it and it takes 10% off the entire order - I must be doing this incorrectly.
    Thanks for your help!

    While you ALLOW for the one product, you must DENY all others (best done by Category)

    ok, so the coupon can only be applied as follows:

    purchase any number of items, receive 10% (or whatever %) off of THIS PRODUCT. (this is more or less the same thing as giving 10% off a certain item).

    The customer can still purchase 10 of the same product and will receive 10% off of each one.

    What I wanted to offer is a coupon for the customer to receive 10% off of one item only (even if they order 10 of the same item).

    ok, thanks very much - I really appreciate the help this morning!

    If the Discount Coupon is valid for 10% off 1 Product and only Quantity 1 of that Product then set the Discount Coupon up for the Amount of 10% off for that Product so if it is a $39.99 Product make the Discount Coupon for 3.99 and then the customer only gets $3.99 off no matter how many they buy for this Product when you set the Restriction to just this product ...
