Quick and Dirty Coupon with Custom Line Item and Rules (Screencast)

Tonight I needed a coupon on one product on a site that only sells one product. I didn't really want to deploy and configure Commerce Coupon, so I just did it with a quick combination of a line item field and a rule.

Here's what I did:

  1. Add a "coupon" field to the line item
  2. Create a product pricing rule that checks to see that when the right product is in the line item and the right value is in the coupon field, apply a discount. (The rule is attached to this article.)

That's it.

Using Custom Line Items To Provide a Donation Feature to Drupal Commerce

Lots of people have been asking about how to do donations in Drupal Commerce, and since I've been exploring custom line item types, it seemed like that would be a reasonable way to do it.

This screencast is based on the previous Introduction to Custom Line Item Types, so if you're not familiar with the basic concepts try that one.

Introduction to Custom Line Items with Drupal Commerce

Custom Line Item Types were a late addition to the Drupal Commerce store technology suite. From the beginning, we've had custom product types, which could have any number of custom fields. These were great when the store defines all the information about the products (like red-small-t-shirts and blue-medium-t-shirts) but don't provide enough power when the customer needs to define something about the product.

Installing Drupal Commerce on a site upgraded from Drupal 6

In the last couple of weeks, we've had a few users ask questions pertaining to installing Drupal Commerce on a site updated from Drupal 6. The sites in question weren't Ubercart migrations, so there was no e-commerce data to bring forward. That's where you'd usually expect hangups to occur, which is why we're devoted significant time to the Commerce Migrate module to help transfer data from an Ubercart site into Drupal Commerce.

Commerce Guys will be providing a full day of hands-on Drupal Commerce training after the Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit on Monday, October 17, 2011, presented by Randy Fay. We continually revise our curriculum based on attendee feedback, and we keep it updated to reflect the latest hotness in the Drupal Commerce modules.

First Look at Commerce Migrate Ubercart (Screencast)

Commerce Migrate is an extension of the excellent Migrate Project allowing its full capabilities to be used with Commerce entities like product, customer profile, etc. Commerce Migrate includes a submodule, Commerce Migrate Ubercart, which can import an Ubercart D6 or D7 database and turn it into a Drupal Commerce store.

In this screencast I give the basics of how to set up a migration.
