When a coupon is used, it should mark the OrderID where it was used. We are issuing one-time promotion coupons to customers and it is difficult to track which orders they were used in by looking at the coupon table.

Hi there

You can actually do this from the View Orders page.Simply filter your orders using the coupon name and it will bring up all orders.

Another way of doing this is to set up an affiliate account and asociate the new afiliate acount with the coupon.

Then whenever somone purchases using the coupon it will be associated with the afliate.

You then just need to log into Affiliates and you can run reports on all sales generated using the coupon.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

The cart should optimally be able to do a look-up to see if the coupon has already been used for each customer without having to do a manual look-up. Otherwise, the cart will let the same customer use the coupon more than once.

Did I miss this, or has this been enabled in Version 7?

Sorry, I misunderstand what was being asked here.

Coupons cannot be limited to a single use per customer currently.

You can use my method to track the usage but not to limit it.

You could achieve this with some custom code however.

Thanks

I think coupon can be limited for single usage by puting 1 as couponlimit, but when it is used, system should also put in coupon table the "OrderId" where it was used. That way, when customer has a question about the coupon being used or not, we can simply check in coupon table which order it was used.
