The extension provides an overview of the catalog discounts, if applicable, in the cart totals block.
OverviewBack to top
The Catalog Discount in Cart extension is quick to resolve an issue with catalog discounts not being visible in the cart. It becomes possible thanks to the ability to add discount info to the cart totals. The way of work is similar to that of Shopping Cart Price Rules.
What's in it for me? As a shop owner, you do know that clearance campaigns and sales are effective means to attract the attention of shop visitors. In this regard, Magento provides you with some built-in features like the Catalog Price Rules and Shopping Cart Price Rules. It is easy to distinguish these two. The catalog rules are displayed on category and product view pages. In turn, the shopping cart rules, when applied, are only visible on the cart page. At a first glance, this makes total sense to separate these rules and the way they are implemented. However, this doesn't give your customers a clear view of what they can really save if they place an order. The latter doesn't make it any clearer since catalog discounts are already included in the order item's price.
When the extension is on, the cart totals are set to include any discounts generated by the Catalog Price Rules if applicable to the products found in the cart. Such products would be accompanied by original price figures to show a difference between 'with' and 'without the discount. In fact, this shouldn't be new to you because this is going to be exactly what Shopping Cart Price Rules do if matching conditions are met. And, anticipating your next question, let us assure you the 2 default discount types can easily work together. It doesn't matter what and how many rules are applied: all discounts get calculated and presented properly both in the cart and order view.
- Ability to display discounts generated by the catalog price rules in orders and cart totals
- Can work for both frontend and backend orders
- Can work with a mix of the default discount types: Catalog Price and Shopping Cart Price Rules
