Creating a Coupon Code
To create a new coupon you’ll have to click on the blue button at the top left of your screen:
What does each field do?
Enter Coupon code - This field is where you will create the coupon code. This field only accepts numbers and letters, the codes cannot have spaces or special characters in it. Also, the coupon code is not case sensitive.
Type of Discount - This field requires to select one of the three drop down options.
Percentage Discount - If selected, this will discount the percentage entered in “Enter Value of Discount”
Fixed Value - If selected, this will subtract the value entered in “Enter Value of Discount”
Price Override - If selected, this will override the price that was entered at the product level to be the value entered in “Enter Value of Discount”
Enter Value of Discount - In this field, you will enter the value that you wish to have for the coupon code. If you have selected Percentage Discount, you must enter a value between 0 and 100. If you selected Fixed Value, you may enter any value desired, however, if you entered a value that is greater than the actual price for the product level, it’ll bring it down to 0. The discounted price will never be in negative numbers. If you have selected the Price Override, it’ll replace the value entered at the product level to be the value entered in this field.
Maximum Uses - If you enter a number, this will be the number of times that this code can be used by your customers. If it reaches its limit, it will not work any longer for your members. If left at 0, it can be used as times wanted.
Apply to Recurring Payments - If yes, this discount code will work for first and future recurring payments. If no, this will only work for the first payment.
Start Date - This will let the software know when you wish the coupon code to start working for your members. If no start date is selected, the coupon code will start working once you save changes.
Expiration Date - This will let the software know when you wish the coupon code to stop working for your members. The coupon code will stop working after the expiration date has been reached. If left blank, the coupon code created will work forever until an expiration date is added or the coupon code is deleted.
Internal Admin Notes - This field will only be viewable by admins of the website. In here you are able to leave notes about the coupon.
