Coupons have several options which make them really powerful and flexible. The following options are available:

  • Coupon code – The code which the user must enter to use the coupon.
  • Discount type:
    • Cart discount – A fixed total discount for the entire cart.
    • Cart % discount - A percentage discount for the entire cart.
    • Product discount - A fixed total discount for selected products only.
    • Product % discount - A percentage discount for selected products only.
  • Coupon amount – Fixed value or percentage off for this coupon.
  • Individual use – Determines whether the customer can use multiple coupons at once, or just this one.
  • Apply before tax – Lets you determine whether the coupon should be applied before or after the tax. Before tax is the most common setting. The calculation is as follows:
    • Prices include tax – Take the price (inc tax) and take off the discount, THEN calculate the tax backwards.
    • Prices exclude tax – Take the price (ex tax) and take off the discount, THEN calculate the tax forwards.
  • Enable free shipping – Enable this option if the ticket grants free shipping. The free shipping method needs setting up to require a coupon too.
  • Minimum Amount – This field allows you to set the minimum subtotal needed to use the coupon.  Note: The sum of the cart subtotal + tax is used to compare to this minimum amount.
  • Product IDs – A list of product ID’s that the cart must contain for the coupon to be valid, or, for “Product Discounts”, which products are discounted.
  • Exclude Product IDs – A list of product ID’s that the cart must not contain for the coupon to be valid, or, for “Product Discounts”, which products are not discounted.
  • Usage limit – How many times a coupon can be used by all customers before becoming invalid.
  • Expiry date – When a coupon should expire and no longer be enabled.
