    Hello Seyi,

    Please excuse me if this has already been asked, I did a quick search in your Forum and on Google and couldn't find an answer.

    I have a minimum purchase order value for my store of $300.00 and I would like to provide my customers the option to purchase a $25 gift certificate without anything else in their cart.

    Is there a way to exclude gift certificates from the minimum purchase order value?

    Thanks,
    Blake

    I dont think this has been covered yet. in both
    www/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/html/basket.php and
    www/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/html/ro_basket.php

    you will find some code such as this
    <?php
    if( !defined'_MIN_POV_REACHED' )) {
        if (
    round($_SESSION['minimum_pov'], 2) > 0.00) {
            if (
    $total_undiscounted >= $GLOBALS['CURRENCY']->convert$_SESSION['minimum_pov'] )) {
                
    // OKAY!
                
    define ('_MIN_POV_REACHED''1');
            }
        } else {
            
    define ('_MIN_POV_REACHED''1');
        }
    }
    ?>


    Update it to look like this
    <?php
    if( !defined'_MIN_POV_REACHED' )) {
        if (
    round($_SESSION['minimum_pov'], 2) > 0.00) {
            
    # seyi_code
            
    $_giftcert_products = array(17,21);
            
    $is_giftcert false;
            for (
    $i=0;$i$GLOBALS['CURRENCY']->convert$_SESSION['minimum_pov'] )) {
                
    // OKAY!
                
    define ('_MIN_POV_REACHED''1');
            }
        } else {
            
    define ('_MIN_POV_REACHED''1');
        }
    }
    ?>


    Where $_giftcert_products is a list of product id's that are gift certificate. Note, this is untested code, so do test it and be comfortable with it before using.

    Thanks for the code, it works perfectly if the shopper just purchases a Gift Certificate.

    But if the shopper combines other items from the store (with the Gift Certificate) that total less than $300.00, they can still checkout.

    Do you see a way to fix this?

    I thought if a gift certificate was added to the cart then the min value thing goes away. You can try this instead

    <?php
    if( !defined'_MIN_POV_REACHED' )) {
        if (
    round($_SESSION['minimum_pov'], 2) > 0.00) {
            
    # seyi_code
            
    $_giftcert_products = array(17,21);
            
    $_products_in_cart = array();
            for (
    $i=0;$i$GLOBALS['CURRENCY']->convert$_SESSION['minimum_pov'] )) {
                
    // OKAY!
                
    define ('_MIN_POV_REACHED''1');
            }
        } else {
            
    define ('_MIN_POV_REACHED''1');
        }
    }
    ?>


    Again, untested

    Thank you Seyi, this works perfectly.

    I think this might be useful for others who want to sell Gift Certificates that cost less than their store minimum purchase amount.

    I gave you a donation through PayPal to show my appreciation.

    Take care,
    Blake

    Thanks Blake for the donation, it is very much appreciated.

    It is now part of the forum, so others who search will be able to use it too.
