Coupons are used to give customers a set discount across your store. Use this area to add, edit or delete coupons.
- Adding Coupons: To add a new coupon, select the ´Add´ button, then enter all the fields needed for the coupon.
- Editing Coupons: To edit a coupon, select the coupon you wish to edit, then select the ´Edit´ button, and enter all the fields needed for that coupon.
- Deleting Coupons: To delete a coupon, select the coupon you wish to remove, then select the ´Delete´ button, and confirm the deletion of that coupon.
- Coupon Codes: After a coupon has been added, if you wish to create a link that you can send customers via email, click ´Get Code´.
You can use %COUPONS% 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.
Using the link
Customer clicks on the coupon link and shops. The discount is applied whenever an item is added to the cart. Typically, the customer is emailed the link and the discount is for the customer only. Note that when the link is used, the customer does not have to enter a coupon code.
Entering the discount coupon code
When %COUPONS% is used in the template, a prompt to enter a member code will appear.
The coupon code is entered by the customer which will invoke a site-wide discount. The discount is applied when the customer adds an item to the shopping cart.
