Coupon Codes

Coupons codes can be associated with shopping cart price rules to apply a discount when a set of conditions is met. For example, a coupon code can be created for a specific customer group, or for anyone who makes a purchase over a certain amount.

In-store Coupon for Mobile Users

Here are a few ways that you can use coupons in your store:

  • Email coupons to customers
  • Produce printed coupons
  • Create in-store coupons for mobile users

Coupon codes can be sent by email, or included in newsletters, catalogs, and advertisements. You can even create in-store coupons with a quick response code that shoppers can scan with their smart phones. The QR code links to a page on your site with more information about the promotion.

To apply the coupon to a purchase, the customer enters the coupon code during checkout from the shopping cart page of your site, or possibly at the cash register of your “brick and mortar” store.

Enter Coupon Code in Shopping Cart

To set up a coupon code:

1. Follow the instructions to create a shopping cart price rule.
2. On the General Information page, do the following:
a. Set Coupon to “Specific Coupon.”
b. Enter a numeric Coupon Code to be used with the promotion. If you want to auto-generate coupon codes, select the Use Auto Generation checkbox.
c. To limit the number of times the coupon can be used, complete the following:
  • Uses per Coupon
  • Uses per Customer

If you leave these fields blank, there will be no limit on the number of times the coupon can be used.

d. To make the coupon valid for a limited period of time, complete the From Date and To Date fields. To select the date, click the Calendar button next to each field.

If you leave the date range empty, the rule will never expire.
