    Hi Scott,

    Finally able to initiate using this mod on a live store. I have set up so Product A displays: "buy this and receive product B at 25% off". And that works.

    I wonder if there is any way to make an associated note on the Product B page, that if "you buy Product B with product A then you receive a 25% discount on product B". So buyers of both products would be made aware of the available bundle deal?

    I could set up a similar discount on the product B page but then when the customer checks out they receive TWO discounts.

    Hope this is clear. Any recommends on this?

    2. Also I would like to setup a "buy product A and B, then you get product C free" scenario. Is that possible?

    Woody

    (2) is unlikely, but (1) is an interesting idea. Let me noodle on this.

    Thanks,

    Would you please double check this? I thought I coded it in such a way as to guard against this.
    (Not that this is a workable solution for the specific problem you have - it would be a terrible pain to maintain these symmetric lists of associations. I just want to be sure you're allowed to do it and don't get the astonishing result of a double discount!)

    Thanks for the follow-up Scott,

    Sorry if I was not clear. I was making a presumption that if I set-up a discount on one product and then also set-up a discount on the other product, I would receive two discounts.

    So to test this I just set-up:
    $this->add_prod_to_prod(A, B, "%", 25);
    $this->add_prod_to_prod(B, A, "%", 25);

    And I added both products to my shopping cart and checkout shows only one discount applied! Cool!

    Questions:

    What controls which discount would apply (say product A is $14 and product B is $12. Would the 25% discount be $3.50 or $3.00? What is the criteria for calculating the basis of the discount in this scenario? By the order the products are added to customer shopping cart?

    Yes it would be great, if when setting up a discount, which directly involves two products, the bundle discount availability would be promoted on both product description pages.

    And would be cool if such special could be displayed on product listing (category) pages or on the featured products page per example (since we have only few products we display all products on home page in Featured Products listing in center column).

    Maybe add a red asterisk to the price (*) and a legend at the top and bottom of the listing show:

    * = special bundle price available (see product page)

    But I can see supporting such as above would add additional complexibility to the mod. But as Borat would say, that would be "very nice". ;-)

    And yes the idea of being able to bundle more than two products together has much appeal (e.g. buy A and B get C for free).

    No - by the order you code them in the setup() function. But believe it or not, some clients asked me to modify this logic and apply *all* possible discounts! (The Crazy Eddies of e-commerce.)

    I'm working on the "reverse" marketing logic- should be able to release this weekend. Stay tuned!

    Let me clarify this answer: since Better Together 1.2, the order has been two-for-ones first, then better together linkages in the order specified in setup(). Prior to this it was just by the order specified in the setup.

    Better Together 1.3 was just approved for download.

    Please be sure to update the marketing text on your product info page per the instructions to get the "reverse" discount upsell text (thanks to Woody for the suggestion). Please also be sure to merge any changes you made to the language file, as that was updated also.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    This would be custom logic. PM me for details.
