Title: How the voucher, credits and gifting features work
Post by: nolan on November 15, 2012, 09:28:34 PM
Okay, after 14000 lines of new code, the voucher system is live  :yippee: and this is how it works :

If you are watching this video from the Xmas email:
The gift is a credit and not a voucher.
This means there is no voucher number required.
You can add items to your cart as normal, then at checkout you will see there is a Minus Block below the items in your basket.
Inside that block you can either enter a voucher number or select how many credits to use.
In this case you need to select how many credits to use.

To see this in action forward to 2 minutes and 50 seconds into the video below to see how to use your credits


how to use the voucher system (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gC_Z6_JDqg8#ws)
to view a full quality video in a new window, click HERE (http://www.paintbasket.com/videos/?seed=voucher)

you can also gift a member directly in the forum by clicking this icon (it will only show if you have credits available):

Very impressive and, really quite brilliant Nolan!  :clap: :clap:
I can't start to imagine just how much skill and work is required to create such a system.
I like how you've added these gifting options. I look forward to lots of Xmas credits heading my way from the other members! lol :) ;D

Wow - what a nice surprise!   :thankyou:  Nolan and Dennis :santa: .   I ordered Photo-editing for Artists.  I wanted to take that back when it was live, but for some reason couldn't, maybe I was out of town.  So - I'm excited to get it now.  What a nice Christmas present.  Love you guys -  :1hug: - to both of you!
 
And,  :thankyou:  Nolan for your hard work getting the voucher system up and running in time for Christmas!  As if there isn't already enough to do to get ready for this holiday!  :pullhair: Now, can you rest for a bit and enjoy the season?  :coffee:    :party:  I sure hope so.   :peace:

I said it in another post, but I want to make sure you get it! 
 
Dennis and Nolan,
     Thank you both for your generosity! Not just for this wonderful Christmas gift, but for all you do! You have blessed so many people around the world with your talents and kindness! I believe God blesses every individual with, at least, one talent. His intention is for us to use it for good, but it is up to us how we use it. You have used it, not only to benefit yourself, but to bless others. I believe He looks at you two and says, "Well done!" Thank you from one person who has reaped bountifullly from your talents!

Yes, very nice gift.  I paint a litle with acrylics.  I bought a lesson with the credits you gave us, but I didnt realize that the lesson I bought was for watercolors.

Planesphere please let me know which class you bought, then choose the one you really want and I'll exchange it for you

Hey Nolan, sorry for the mix up, I didnt see that the lesson used watercolours so I assumed it was for all mediums. I sent you a message about the lesson.
Thanks, Planesphere73 (or Zac)

 :thankyou: Thank you so much for this nice christmas gift. Nolan you are amazingly efficient
with your computer knowledge. I used my gift for the Color buster, hoping to improve with
my color mixing. Dennis, i am painting all your flowers at the moment, painting them on half a
page of paper, so that i can fold them, and am going to give them as Christmas gifts cards to my 2 sons and their girlfriends and Grandma. Have done 2 and a half, hope to finish the other 2 and a half by saturday. Love you guys, i enjoy watching the videos, and learning a lot. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas. From Dutch, Ada/Bella living in Houston, Texas. :thankyou:

We all seem to be living in such troubled times these days with any number of events occurring with great frequency whether naturally or man-made.  It's easy to feel upset, fearful and worried over what it all means and where we're headed and then....


Something special happens...no, something extraordinary happens...something so unexpected, so generous, so thoughtful that it snaps you right out of your reverie and reminds you that yes, there IS goodness in the world...that yes, there IS reason to hope in mankind and yes, it really is in giving that we receive.


Dennis and Nolan - thank you for being that special happening...that extraordinary happening -  not only for your incredible Christmas gift to us all but for all you give to us on the days you don't even know you are.  I really do believe that  :angel: :angel:  walk among us.  Thank you.  I feel so blessed with PB in my life.

You are absolutely right, Ray.  The expiry date is 2013.  I've been in such a spin lately, so much to be done!  I'm still only able to visit the forum sporadically.

When I click on the gift icon, it tells me I have the $10 credit, but I don't see the voucher number.  I think I may have opened it as I recall seeing it, but had no time to use it when I was at the computer.

Do we have to use this in the store?  Or can it be used for upcoming classes.  I've pretty well bought out the store already!  I was thinking of purchasing the Let's Draw Manual for my grandson as he is getting pretty good at drawing, but I may wait a while as I think it could be a little too much for him. 

Anyway, I want to chime in with Lynn, Mary has an especially wonderful way with words and I share her sentiments exactly.

When you purchase a lesson there is the opportunity to use some or all of your $10.
You don't need a voucher no.

You're such a genious, Ray!   :thankyou:   I just booked the next 3 lessons, didn't notice the opportunity to use the $10.   :2funny:    Maybe I'll figure it out next time, or maybe it will take me to Dec. 18, 2013!!!   :2funny:
