    • You can use CSS to change background like this

      tr.cart-discount th, tr.cart-discount td {
      background-color: #b6fbbe;
      /*replace #b6fbbe with your desired color hex code*/
  1. It is very good, but it does not show for active coupons.

    Only for products with prices on offer.

    Once I remove the offer price products, “You Saved” disappears, even with discount coupons applied.

    • Yes, You are right; it’s only for if you have products on sale with both sale and regular price present.
