The Coupons/Discounts page just got a makeover! Check out this post to see improvements to the page, as well as learn about new true one time use coupons.
Creating coupons for your online store just got even easier. Introducing the revamped Coupons/Discounts page, complete with improved usability and the expanded functionality of true one time use coupons.
With the addition of true one time use coupons, you now have three Coupon Usage options at your disposal:
- Unlimited Use: Customers can use this coupon an unlimited number of times.
- One-Time Use Per Customer: Each customer can only use this coupon once. (This is based on CustomerID and IP Address.)
- NEW One-Time Use: This coupon can only be used once. After the coupon’s been used, it’s marked as “redeemed” and can never be used again.
This new type of coupon is perfect for helping you run campaigns where customers purchase a code, like in the case of a Groupon, Living Social or Amazon deal. It’s also great for keeping a coupon code from going “viral” and being shared with unintended audiences.
Tip: If you’d like to offer a large number of unique codes, the import/export tool can help you create them easily.
In addition to the expanded functionality, we’ve also revamped the Coupons/Discounts page to be more intuitive and user friendly. It’s now easier than ever to indicate which products or categories your discounts and coupons will apply to. Simply select the products or categories from the pop-up menu, and your coupons and discounts will be applied.
You’ll also notice that the Coupons/Discounts page now displays two new columns: Coupon Usage and Single-Use Redeemed. Coupon Usage tells you whether the coupon is Unlimited, SingleUsePerCustomer, or SingleUse, while Single-Use Redeemed tells you whether a Single Use coupon has been redeemed or not.
