Usage Restriction

Usage Restriction

In the two upper fields you should specify the price range ("Minimum Spend" and "Maximum Spend") created coupon will be valid. For example, if the limits are set from $70 to $100, in that case, the price of the positions less than $70 and more than $100 will be taken without a discount.

Max/min spend fields

"Individual Use Only" - not used in combination with other coupons. In this manner, when applying the coupon, other discounts will be unavailable.

"Exclude Sale Items" activates the condition under which products on sale will be ignored by this coupon.

"Email Restrictions" - specify corresponding email addresses of customers for the discount.

Usage Limits

Usage limits tab

"Usage Limit per Coupon" - specify the number of times the particular coupon can be applied by customers before it becomes invalid.

"Limit Usage to X Items" - indicate the number of products to which the coupon can be applied before it becomes inactive. This field will be valid if the chosen type of coupon is "Fixed Product Discount" and if there is one or more products to which a coupon discount may apply.

"Usage Limit per User" - set an individual limit for each user. That means, when a certain number of times spent by a customer to apply a coupon gets exhausted, a coupon becomes invalid for that customer.

Product Restrictions

"Affected Products" - products the current coupon will be applied to. It can also be the list of products that need to be in the customer cart in case the "Fixed Cart Discount" is selected.

Affected Products list

"Excluded Products" - the list of products a coupon will not be applied to. In addition, if the "Fixed Cart Discount" type is chosen the products listed in that field cannot be in the cart during purchasing.

Excluded Product List

Note: if you leave the tab empty (the affected and excluded products list not specified) the coupon can be applied (used) to the entire range of the store.

Press [Apply] to make the changes activated and saved.

Categories Restrictions tab

"Affected Categories" and "Excluded Categories" - choose categories on the left to make a coupon available for these positions and, accordingly, for the products, assigned to these categories, current coupon will be inaccessible.

Category Restrictions tab

The [Apply] button saves the changes, performed in the particular tab.

Once this coupon has been activated, you can distribute it by e-mail to your customers or place at the store’s site as a hot offer.

Apply Coupon at the Front-End

After receiving a promotional, code customers can use it during the purchase at the front-end of the store to get the discounted price.

Specify the code in the appropriate area of the cart (1) and press the [Apply] button to activate it (2).

The sum of the order will be calculated based on the product price, taxes and selected discount.

Apply Coupon to an Order in the Point of Sale Section of Store Manager

In the POS section of Store Manager, starting from the updated versions, a coupon can be added directly during order creation.

In the lower part of the POS form there is an area for coupon adding. Press the button to open a list with all available coupons:

Add coupon in POS

Choose one you need and it will be applied to the current order. You will see the totals of an order with the discount assigned to the chosen coupon. Take into account the price fields with tax and without tax - it varies depending on the discount you have applied.

The table with the discount values, as shown on the illustration below, is represented by the columns with the code name, discount and tax. The discount is an actual discount on the product based on its cost (price without tax).

The column "Tax" forms on a basis of the discount amount, which is applied to the order automatically.

Discount amount in price of the order

"Product Total (Tax Exl)" is the difference between an actual price of the product (TAX exl) and the amount of the discount in the numeric equivalent.

The price with the discount, in our case (represented on the illustration above), will be equal to: 24-6=$18

If the product is taxable you can see the variations in the columns related to the Tax values as well.

The "Total of an order with Tax" is obtained from the differences between the price value (Tax Incl) and the "Order Discount" column.

Order Discount column

The price with the taxes will be equal to: 29.95-7.49=$22.46

If the data is configured properly, you can save an order and close the POS form simultaneously.

Create and Exit option in POS

In the Orders list the newly-created order is shown with the coupon details, as well.
