How do slscart coupons work?

slscart coupons are managed in the storeadmin in the Advanced area. Coupons can be added, deleted, and modified. Coupon discount is percentage only off the current price (regular or sale).

 A customer enters a coupon code and the discount is effective off any product. The discount is applied at checkout. A coupon can only be used once per order.

Store Administration

Coupons are used to give customers a set discount across your store. Use this area to add, edit or delete coupons.

When adding a coupon, enter the following details:

You can add %COUPONS% to your template which shows a place to enter coupon code or send a link which contains the coupon code in the URL. When the code is active, a message will appear showing the discount code (e.g. 5%) which applies to all purchased items. This will stay in effect until the coupon expires. The coupon stays active during the user's session.
