    Hey - funny someone recently commented here as only yesterday I go the promotional email for the woomarketing bundle that includes the dynamic pricing plugin - https://woocommerce.com/products/woomarketing-bundle/

    It is logical that there are many other ideas with more votes comparing to this but what really strikes me is that people focus mainly on adding more functionality to Woo - which is a good thing - and forgetting about improving current functionalities. I find dynamic pricing to be a very useful tool for marketing and it really needs to work seamlessly.

    There is also this relevant thread --> http://ideas.woocommerce.com/forums/133476-woocommerce/suggestions/3783973-display-dynamic-pricing-discount-clearly

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    I agree - unfortunately also the two plugins I ve found in codecanyon doing dynamic pricing are not supporting this - so in general this is a bigger issue as there is really no solution around it.

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Hello unfortunately I cannot see there is an update on this despite my attempts. I will try again to post a ticket to Woo regarding this. Really disappointing as this for sure causes problems as customers can take the dynamic pricing discount plus the coupon discount on top of this!

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Hello Lucas, have not heard anything back regarding this. Please let me know if there is a plan for this down the line.

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Hello Lucas,

    as I mentioned before, in 90% of the cases I ve run, the vendor wants either the discount coupon or the dynamic pricing discount to be applied on cart - not both.

    So in the case of a cart coupon, the ideal would be that the discount coupon will apply only to the items that are not affected by dynamic pricing.

    Let me know any thoughts.

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Hello Lucas, thank you for commenting on this.

    I believe in general that main thing is to prevent coupons from being applied when a dynamic pricing rule is applied. Most of the vendors are not willing to have a discount being applied on top of a dynamic pricing rule. It is usually one way or the other.

    If the coupon is per cart then the customer will not be able to checkout - as they should not get the discount on top of the dynamic pricing discount/offer

    If the coupon is per product (as the scenario you are mentioning) then ideally the customer should be able to checkout instead of placing the order in two parts. But obviously product X and product Y should not be in the same category.

    Again this is the same idea as here so the votes should be counted together > http://goo.gl/7E5rRY.

    Dynamic pricing plugin is really cool but the fact that it does not work with the core discount coupons is a pretty big issue plus some other stuff like not displaying clear notes on order notification emails and relevant pages when a dynamic pricing is applied (but that's another issue).

    The thing is that this ideas will never be noticed here in the ideas board as there are many ideas prior with much more votes.

    I m gonna open a woo ticket and see if I can push this as a github issue.

    As of this comment, the two posts have a combined total of 60 votes. Any updates?

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    FYI > This is the same idea with here > http://goo.gl/7E5rRY. Just thought that the votes should be counted together since this is effectively the same.

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Hello Zorem, no frankly I did not see the dates. Is that of importance? Since the ideas are the same I believe that the votes on each one should be counted together. That is why I also linked to the other thread. :)

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Are there any updates on this?

    Thank you!

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    I believe that is very much needed to make the Dynamic Pricing work together with coupon codes. While setting an Advanced Category Pricing Rule the offered discount is not excluding the coupon discounts. Coupon discounts can still be applied in addition to the Dynamic Pricing discounts which is rather out of the scope of the Dynamic pricing plugin, making it hard to incorporate it and adjust it to the needs of a company that issues discount coupons.

    voting this - An additional note would be that instead of just "sold out" there could be a custom message ; needed especially when there is a wait-list functionality implemented as just "sold out" may deter users/prospect customers.

    Again I can see no work is being done regarding this plugin - really disappointing!

    bump

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Again to follow up with this idea - the discount that customer gets from dynamic pricing should indeed be clearly stated everywhere (thank you page - order confirmation email etc). And again when there is also another discount based on coupons the two discounts should be clearly stated.

    Again I m linking to the conjuction thread which is a different idea but quite relevant to this - http://ideas.woothemes.com/forums/133476-woocommerce/suggestions/2647875-dynamic-pricing-regular-pricing-to-work-in-conju

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    Just adding this here as it's almost relevant regarding conjuction between dynamic pricing and discount coupons > http://ideas.woothemes.com/forums/133476-woocommerce/suggestions/2647875-dynamic-pricing-regular-pricing-to-work-in-conju

    Bill Karkavos commented  · 

    I agree on this!
    Nothing informs the customer that there was a dynamic pricing discount applied to the order; the vendor should know BUT when going over older receipts with different dynamic pricing discounts applied on them then there is no way to know and monitor - evaluate.

    this should be clearly stated on the notification emails for both vendor and customer.

    +1 - this is much needed and it will actually leverage WooCommerce to more than a solution for start ups - making it relevant for middle size enterprises as well who need an order tracking - CRM all in one solution.
