Q&A: Can i, in PrestaShop, apply gift card also for shipping cost?

PrestaShop user question

I wonder if iti s possible to apply discount code also to shipping cost? For some time i've been looking for a gift card module that allows the purchased amount to cover both products and shipping. For example a gift voucher for 300€ covers example of products for 250€ and shipping for 50€.



PrestaShop expert answer

Hello
GIft codes in prestashop are dependent on prestashop core, in this case - core of "cart rules".
At the moment prestashop allows to generate cart rules with "actions" like:
  • Free shipping. The rule treats benefiting customers to free shipping.
  • Apply a discount.
  • Percent (%). The rule applies to a percentage of the order total. For instance, let's say the order is valued at $200 before taxes. The rule has a value of 15%. Customer who benefit from this rule will only have to pay $170 (before taxes and shipping costs).
  • Amount. The rule applies a monetary discount on the order total. For instance, let's say the order is valued at $200 before taxes. The discount offers $20 off the purchase. Customer who benefit from this rule will only pay $180 before (before shipping costs). You can choose whether taxes are applied to the discount or not.
  • None. The rule does not offer any discount on the order. Choosing this option makes the next section, "Apply discount to", disappear.
  • Apply discount to.
  • Order (without shipping). The discount applies to the whole order.
  • Specific product. You can choose to which product the discount should apply: type the first letters of the product, and choose in the list of matching names.
  • Cheapest product. Only available for the "Percent (%)" option.
  • Selected product(s). The customer can choose on which products the discount should be applied. Only available for the "Percent (%)" option.
  • Send a free gift. You can choose to offer a gift for some conditions (and skip the discount altogether). A field appears: type the first letters of the product, and choose in the list of matching names.

So, at the moment prestashop does not allow to apply voucher codes also to shipping value, so, due to the fact that modules usually use prestashop core to generate codes - it is not possible to use gift card also for shipping cost.
