I have released Discount Chooser for OpenCart (a port of the Discount Chooser / Free Gift Chooser algorithm from Zen Cart). I’m excited about this software and hope it really helps OpenCart store operators.
Discount Chooser goes beyond the standard BOGO discounts to permit the creation of much broader offers. For example, you can create “Buy 2, get 1”, “Buy 3 get 1,” or “Buy some number, get a choice of some number.”
If you open the stacked three dots menu in your browser (to the right of the address bar) and open “More Tools -> Developer Tools”, then press the stacked three dot menu on that dialog, you’ll see a checkbox under Network with the label “Disable cache (while DevTools is open)”. Check this, and you’ll always be using the freshest copies of your css and js files.
Now that Discount Chooser is becoming the gold standard for discounting offers in ZenCart, osCommerce, and (soon) OpenCart, I have decided to reduce the price of Better Together Admin.Better Together Admin for Zen Cart and Better Together Admin for osCommerce are now price reduced to just $30 for software only, or $90 for the software plus installation. If you have been holding off on buying the Better Together Admin Panel, now is your chance.
If your discounting needs are limited to BOGO style offers, Better Together is still a great choice, so I hope a lot of people will take advantage of this lower price.
When I first created Free Gift Chooser, it only offered 100% discounts (“free gifts”), based on the content of the cart. About a year later, I added the ability to do price reductions – percentage or dollar based. So the name “Free Gift Chooser” was no longer very accurate.
With the pending release of the Free Gift Chooser algorithm for OpenCart, I’m taking this opportunity to rename the Zen Cart and osCommerce versions of Free Gift Chooser to Discount Chooser (and similarly, to rename Free Gift Spender for Zen Cart to Discount Spender).
