Create Coupons/Discounts for your shoppers
Coupons and Discounts are great to use for Marketing Collateral. Create a Free Shipping coupon or a discount on a specific item to give your shoppers incentive to check out.
Create New Coupon or Discount
- Hover over Marketing
- Click Coupons & Discounts
- Select Create New
Enter in the Coupon/Discount's general information. It is required to enter values either for Fixed Discount or, Percent Discount. Additionally, anything with an Asterisks (*) will need to be filled in.
In the current version of InkSoft, fixed discounts will apply once and only once.
In the Sales Doc version of the system (currently in beta), fixed discounts will stack with the quantity that is being ordered.
NOTE:You can create an Automatic Discount AFTER creating your Coupon. You DO NOT need to have a Coupon Code to use this feature.
NOTE: If a discount is set to apply to shipping only, it will discount shipping for all items in the cart as opposed to only the items selected for the discount.
- Discount set for free shipping on only Product A.
- I have 'Product A' and 'Product B' in my cart, both items will get free shipping.
Minimum and Maximum
Enter in minimums and maximums to apply to this specific discount.
Note: When using the Maximum Usage Per Customer the customer must create an account or have an existing account for the discount to work. This allows InkSoft to keep track of how many times each customer uses it.
Instead of letting the customer use it over and over when checking out as guest.
Apply this discount to certain stores, a specific product or style of the product (i.e. G500, White), etc.
Make sure to Save your Coupon and/or Discount after entering in your info.
Manage Coupons & Discounts
- Active Discounts will show you all of your discount codes you have going
- Inactive Discounts will show you the discounts you had in the past (You can always reactivate an inactive discount)
- Automatically Apply Discount will allow your shopper to receive the discount with out having to enter a Coupon Code at Check Out.
Example: 'Save 5% on all orders over $100' could automatically apply the 5% discount IF the shopper has more than $100 in their shopping cart.
Edit or Delete Discount
When you open Active or Inactive Discount Codes, you will be able to Edit the discount by clicking on the 'Edit Pencil'. To Delete, you will want to click on the 'trashcan' icon.
Good Practices: Setting your Coupons/Discounts as inactive rather than deleting will allow you to reuse an older Discount. This will cut down the time of having to recreate a new discount from scratch.
Disable Coupon Input Field in Stores
You have the ability to disable the input field for Coupons in Stores that will not use them. This is not required but can be helpful to reduce potential confusion for your customer. You simply need to navigate to your store > Store Admin > Settings > Checkout Settings.
