Configuring the Member Discount Feature
LearningCart can be configured to automatically grant member discounts to users that are considered members.
The member discount can be configured as a percentage discount (e.g. 10% off) that will automatically apply to qualifying products. Out of the box the member discount is set to 0%. To change this click Site Settings located on the left navigation menu under Site Content. Select the Site Settings item and locate the Member Discount Amount field. Enter the desired percentage for your member discount. For example to configure a member discount of 10% enter .10 . Click the Save button to save your changes.
Utilizing the Member Discount Feature
Once your member discount is configured, specify which products quality for membership or a member discount.
When editing a product the Advanced tab will display a Membership Settings section. To give a customer membership upon purchase, click the Includes Membership check box and then click Update at the bottom of the page. When a user purchases this product they will now be considered a member for the Duration that was specified for the Price they purchased.
To set the product to automatically apply a member discount for active members, on the Advanced tab under Membership Settings, click the Apply Member Discount check box and then click Update at the bottom of the page.
Please note that member discounts will only apply to future orders after a customer becomes a member. If a customer purchases membership AND a product that qualifies for a member discount at the same time they will not receive a member discount.
