The more I look at X-SO, the more i come to the realization that someone will make a killing if they build a better mousetrap.

X-SO is quite simply, a mess. TERRIBLE user interface - breaks every usability convention.

I was a moment away from buying it this morning... but after reading 100 or so posts, and making my own requests for the past few days, and not a single person had anything nice to say about it -- and then I found a few dozen sites that had it installed -- and without wasting too much of their bandwidth, I concluded that not one of these sites using X-SO, effectively encouraged the customer to buy anything... It was like "hey, we're real geeky - check out all the software we have on our site". This isn't meant to be a rant... just an observation.

Maybe X-SO could be hacked into something good. but out of the box - I'm not going to spend a moment on it. The entire flowchart of the shopping transaction and user experience must be evaluated. And the mod needs to do some very common special offers, such as:

"free gift with purchase"
buy x get y free,
buy minimum qty of X get anything from category Z
spend X get % discount

AND MOST IMPORTANT -- it must auto populate the cart with the offer, once the threshold is met. The customer shouldn't have to do anything. AND - it should allow an incoming link to target the offer... so an inbound URL makes the offer work -- all others don't et the special, But I am way off-topic now.

hi MonkeyClan great job on the mod.

Anyway, my question is that, does it always have to loop the free gifts?

In your mod the output is this

1. order subtotal = $50.00
customer gets free gift 1

2. order subtotal = $100.00
customer gets free gift 1
customer gets free gift 2

what i have in mind is something like

1. order subtotal = $50.00
customer gets free gift 1

2. order subtotal = $100.00
customer gets free gift 2 (not showing free gift 1)
