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.
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 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

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.
