Is it possible to apply a Cart Price Rule using a Coupon to a customers cart when the cart is empty?
The reason is the following:
We’d like to apply a discount code (cart price rule) for customers who use a link which includes a coupon code to visit our shop. This works fine by using the
/checkout/cart/couponPost/?coupon_code=…&return_url=/ url (returns a success message). However, the cart price rule will not be applied if the cart is empty at that point (which it will be for all first-time-visitors).
Is this a limitation of Magento, that cart price rules cannot be applied or saved on empty carts?
