    The value is what you want discounted. If you enter an amount, then it will discount an amount from the 'Get X' field. If you enter a percentage, then it would discount a percent. If for example, you want Buy X get Y at 50% discount, then you would enter 50% in the value field. If you want Buy X get Y, then you would enter 100%.

    We will be putting together something in the near future. Feel free to ask if you have more questions.

    Hi Seyi,

    I bought your Pro version (thanks) and using VM 2.08.c with Joomla 2.5.6 - aside from the fact I can't get Gift Certificates to work (it crashes with errors which I will post here soon) I still can't get Buy X Get Y to function.

    I'm ok with the general Voucher function which works a treat! I've gone over and over your short tutorial - http://awodev.com/blog/buy-x-get-y-virtuemart-redshop-guide which all make sense but still not working

    Hope you can help. Thanks Brian

    Hello,

    Is there specifically something not working? Maybe it has to do with the gift certificate errors you are receiving? What are they? If you would like me to look at your store, please send a private message with temporary store access.

    I had to publicly send a note of thanks to Seyi for all his help with this.

    I have been working with Joomla for many years and Virtuemart for a few weeks then discovered the Coupon/Gift Certificate plugin.
    Took me a day or three to get my head around things so I contacted Seyi - within less than 24hours he had logged into my site, 'fixed' whatever it was I hadn't done and 'voila!' all worked for me.

    I have since followed his comprehensive info on Gift Certificates here http://awodev.com/blog/sell-gift-certificates-online-your-virtuemart-store and have now managed to get the automated stuff happening.

    Just wanted to say that in all my years working in this business I have NEVER come across a developer so generous with their time to try and get issues resolved.

    Well done Seyi and no doubt your team - Thanks again!!

    Brian
