Wanted to follow up on this question about easily excluding specific items from discounts, this would be a REALLY nice feature to have.
Perhaps when you create or edit an item along with all the other check boxes at the beginning (Taxes/VAT, Variables, Single download etc.) there could be a box for "Exclude from discounts"?
This would be SUPER helpful in my opinion. For instance I mainly sell watch straps, but I also sell a few tools, I would like to be able to create a situation where a customer can get a 15% discount for ordering 3 watch straps but that discount would only be applied to the straps in their shopping cart, not any tools etc. added to the cart.
Currently I can only create a percent discount for the entire cart. My goal is to discount multiple strap purchases only, but I can't do it because a customer could buy one expensive strap and then several cheap tools and they will cross the cart item limit and the price limit and get the discount applied to the cart even though they only ordered one strap.
Plus I don't mind discounting straps, but I never want to discount tools because I sell them more as a convenience to my customers so I keep the prices low on them, a discount applied to them essentially erases my slim profit margin on those items.
