Zen Cart Default Attribute

Zen Cart Default Attribute is a mod which allows items with only single valued defaultable attributes (such as PDF-only downloads) to be added directly from a listing page, rather than from the product_info page only.  This means your customers can add these products from the search page, category listing page, featured products page, or the new and all products pages.

And coming next month: you’ll be able to use my cross selling mods like Checkbox Cross Sell to help sell these products!  Stay tuned …

Zen Cart Big Spender adds discounting by subtotal with filtering

One of my customers want to discount by dollars spent but NOT discount any product on sale, and also not discount specific products selectable by category, product id or manufacturer.  So I added set_cart_discount_products() to Big Spender 1.2.17, which starts from the product  subtotal and then allows you to filter out specific products (using the filters indicated above) with the cart_filter_product() function.

Here’s an example configuration, in the setup() function

 $this->add_threshold(500, 'Spend over $500, get 30% off', false);

 $this->add_threshold(250, 'Spend over $250, get 25% off', false);

 $this->add_threshold(100, 'Spend over $100, get 20% off', false);

 $this->add_threshold(50, 'Spend over $50, get 20% off', false);


Zen Cart Free Gift Chooser now has Edit functionality

Zen Cart Free Gift Chooser is a discounting module (buy some items, get some other items at a discount) with a built-in admin panel. I just added the ability to edit discounts, and set the “deal id” feature on discounts to link them together (so only one will be applied).  The edit capability in particular is a huge step forward in usability, and I hope you like it.
