How Random Winners Are Picked At Planet Applique

First we export certain data from ALL orders (customer name, email, order number, order date, order total) from the new website database.

Next we create a brand new blank database on a separate sql server we own through another hosting platform. We then set up the table to contain columns that match those from the export file (customer name, email, order number, order date, order total).

We import the CSV file or export file that we got from our new website into the fresh blank database we created.
We then run a series of SQL commands to make the list relevent to the details of our drawing:
The criteria are:

1) Any order placed from Nov 1st until Dec 1st (We extended it one day due to massive emails we received and making sure everyone had a chance to order after dealing with some issues particular customers faced, trying to login and getting their password reset so that they could order)

DELETE FROM `orders` WHERE `order number` < #
This deleted all orders that were on our database prior to June 20, 2017 from the drawing.

DELETE FROM `orders` WHERE `order number` > #
This deleted all orders that were on our database after June 30, 2017 from the drawing.

2) Order must be at least $10
DELETE FROM `orders` WHERE `order total` < 10.00
This deleted all orders that were under $10 from the drawing.

If counting every $10 spent and not just $10 orders then we duplicate every order that is = or > $20...etc for each $10 increment using the REPLICATE and INSERT SQL functions.

From there we do a one final SQL command to now select 50 random rows (customers) and display their name and email. We export the results and then add the special 10.00 store credit to these customers accounts manually in the new store.

SELECT `Customer Name`, `Customer Email` FROM `orders` ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 50;

And that's it! That is how winners are selected for our drawings held at Planet Applique. It's very scientific, very nerdy hehe. But it gets the job done efficiently, fairly, and with great results!
