How do I create coupons though the Coupon Engine?
Posted by Justin Thomas on 14 May 2015 01:20:42 PM

Our system helps you offer coupons to your customers via the Coupon Engine. The Coupon Engine allows you to create popular marketing coupons like "10% off on hosting", "20% off on .COM domains", etc.

You can also create conditional coupons that qualify on a purchase of other products - e.g. 20% off on .NET domains on a purchase of Web Hosting.

  • The number of times each customer can use the coupon: This figure indicates the usage limit per customer. Enter 1 if you want each customer to use the coupon only once.
  • The no. of orders to which the coupon can be applied: This figure indicates the number of orders the coupon can be applied to.
