What are the different discounts that can be offered via a coupon?
When sending a coupon to your client, you are able to adjust the discount type and amount. The coupon offers discounts such as a percentage, monetary credit, free product, cost price, and free shipping. You can also limit the coupon to be applicable to certain products. This article breaks down each discount type and how it can be used by your client.
Set-up the discount amount and the description (will be displayed in the client’s cart).
The % will be taken off the whole order unless it’s limited for specific products. If you select for the code to be used more than once, then the client will be able to use the code on multiple orders.
The dollar off coupon can be used as a credit/discount amount. The code can be used on multiple orders until the credit amount is reached. When a client uses this discount during check-out, the $ Off amount is taken off first and the tax is calculated off the remaining amount.
$ Off (including tax)
The dollar off coupon is used as a credit/discount amount. When a client uses this discount during check-out, the tax is calculated first and then the $ Off amount is taken off.
The free product discount requires product selection. If you select more than one item (including multiple types of one item), the client can still order only one free product. Unless you specify the number of times a client can use the code. In this case, the client can use the code for multiple items. For example, if you specify the client can use the code 3 times, they can get 3 free items from the product you selected. The client can choose to order multiple items in one order or separate orders.
The cost price coupon allows the client to purchase items at the production cost price. The set-up for the discount does not require product selection. It can be applied to all products, or you can limit the products to specific ones. If multiple or all products are selected, then the client will be able to order any number of the selected items at cost price.
Free shipping discount will give your client free ground shipping for their order. If your client chooses to upgrade the shipping, they will need to pay the full upgraded price. If you choose that the client is able to use the code more than once, then they will be able to use the code for multiple orders.
The client will see the description of the coupon in their cart, so it’s recommended that you note in the description that the coupon is for Ground/Economy shipping.
If you would like to give your client a shipping credit, you can use the $ Off discount and select for the dollar amount to be applied to the product and shipping.
You can choose to limit the coupon code to only apply to certain products by check-marking Limit Products.
Select the products and click Apply.
Coupon codes can be stackable. When a client tries to use multiple non-stackable coupons, the system will automatically select the better coupon offer for the order (highest monetary amount). The discount amount is always calculated from the order total price (before discount).
Stackable coupons can be added on top of a non-stackable coupon. The discount amount is calculated from the original total price (before ANY discount).
