    Question Product Page Layout on a per product basis, or other solution for cashback promo?

    We are promoting a 50% cashback offer on our Dymo Labelwriter and Dymo Rhino printers, so we have put up a (time limited) block at the top of the category pages, like so:

    http://www.dymo-express.co.uk/labelwriter.html
    http://www.dymo-express.co.uk/dymo-rhino.html

    However, more often people will land directly on the product pages than the category pages, so will miss these banners. The obvious solution is to just add the banner into the product page template as well.

    The problem is that it only seems possible to do this at the category level (ie. all of the products in the LabelWriter/Rhino categories), but we have one specific printer in each category that is not included in the offer so we don't want it appearing on those pages.

    So is it possible to either apply the promo banners just to the majority - but not all - of the products, or apply to all but exclude the specific two?

    ok solved, kind of. Just inserted the {} block code into the contents section for each relevant product. Not really ideal if you have a lot of products, but worked ok here.

    Is it set up as a discount in the discount manager? If so you can include content there to display with product content or additional information.

    We use labels for other things, plus we need to stuff a lot of text on the page to explain the promotion, so not really suitable in this case.

    It's not a discount (it's a claim from manufacturer after purchase promo), but I think it may work as a discount that doesn't actually do anything... ie. we can assign the text to the discount, then assign the discount to the products in one place (a better solution), but then just have it not provide any kind of discount...

    Yep that should work!

    I'll do that on the next promo, it's a more central way of controlling it, rather than having to insert the code onto each product.
