Hello
As I manage to find in older posts it seams hart to show discount in notification emails. Every notification should show discount. Its just simple UX and marketing logic.
So question, how to show discount (not coupon) in notification emails to customer and admin.

Hi,

The discount information is not stored with the order when the order is created.
So I can't provide a quick/easy solution.
It would require some development to first store that information with the order when it is created before you could add it in the email notifications.

As this is fundamental info for every customer, please include this solution for next releases.

Hi,

I think it's related so I'm asking my question here :
Is it now possible to display the price before discount (or the discount) in email notifications ?
Because it is indeed quite important and I don't know how to do it.

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hi,

There is no option for that yet.
However, next version of HikaShop, the 4.5.1, will have the information of the discount added to the product entry in the order when it is created.
So you'll be able to add the tag {LINEVAR:PRODUCT_PRICE_BEFORE_DISCOUNT} in your emails in the menu System>Emails to add that information in the emails.

Ok.

Do you have an estimate for the release of this version 4.5.1 ?


While waiting for this improvement, is there a function I could reuse or should I create a 'helper' (and if yes, should I put it here : \components\com_hikashop\helpers ) ?
I guess I'd have to add something to the com_hikashop/mail/[...].preload.php files in the 'foreach($data->cart->products as $item)' loop.

To sum up, what is the best solution to set this up temporarily ?
It's not a problem if this change is overwritten on the next update or if I have to remove what I would have added.


Edit : I made the change. (1 helper created and custom edits for the various emails)
