Better Together for osCommerce - the Better Together World


Better Together permits shopowners to offer the following types of discounts in osCommerce 2.2 and osCommerce 2.3:

  • Buy item X, get item Y at a discount
  • Buy item X, get an item from category A at a discount
  • Buy an item from category A, get an item from category B at a discount
  • Buy an item from category A, get item X at a discount

Discounts may be specified as percentages of the latter item's price or as absolute values in the currency your cart uses.
