I'm trying to return the total saving for a basket, based on items bought that are on sale. Is this possible?

There's a {you_save} variable per line, but I'd like a total value including quantities to be displayed as "total saving" in the basket - 'order_save' or 'order_saving' would be ideal.

In addition to the {order_discount} variable (which displays the total amount discounted during checkout), Store 2.0.4 adds an {order_you_save} variable.

{order_you_save} returns the total amount saved by ordering products which are on sale.


  • Was looking for the exact same thing! Saved my butt today. Thanks!

You are looking for the {order_discount} variable which is avilable in the cart, checkout, and orders tags.

  • Well I tried that, but it didn't do what I wanted. To summarise: On my product listing I have: 1) In store price = {regular_price} which outputs as £2.50 2) Collection price = {sale_price} which outputs as £2.10 If I add that to the basket, I then have: 3) Total price = {order_total} which outputs as £2.50 4) Your Saving = {order_discount} which outputs as £0.00 I need something that outputs bullet point 4 as '40p', which is the total saving in this case based on regular/sale pricing. Should this work? (sorry for the mess - don't know how to do linebreaks!) Feb 19, 2013 at 18:00
  • Oh I misread your initial post the {order_discount} tag would be if you were applying a promo_code to your cart. Since you are just using the sale price it would not output a value. Feb 19, 2013 at 19:27
  • OK...and no way to achieve it? Seems a pretty useful feature to show what you've saved? Feb 19, 2013 at 20:30
  • There isn't a tag that I am aware of currently. You could probably do it with MX Calc and an items loop but obviously that is not ideal. I will add it to the feature request page so we can see about getting it added to a future release. Feb 19, 2013 at 21:59

    This should be fairly easy to add. I'll put it on the list for our next release. In the meantime, MX calc is probably the best solution. Feb 20, 2013 at 9:53
