Step 2: Coupon Settings


This screen under plugins settings page is used to define the coupon that will be created on every successful transaction that was done via referral link. 

If you are not familiar with WooCommerce coupons, you should check the  WooCommerce guide on coupons , where they are explained in more details.

  • Coupon type:
    • Percentage discount – A percentage discount for the entire cart. For example, if the cart contains three (3) t-shirts @ $20 each = $60, a coupon for 10% off applies a discount of $6.
    • Fixed cart discount – A fixed total discount for the entire cart. For example, if the cart contains three (3)  t-shirts @ $20 each = $60, a coupon for $10 off gives a discount of $10.
    • Fixed product discount – A fixed total discount for selected products only. Customer receives a set amount of discount per item. For example, three (3) t-shirts @ $20 each with a coupon for $10 off applies a discount of $30.
    • Percentage order discount - This discount type will create a coupon amount that is equal of % of that order that referred person made. So if a user invited a friend, and friend made an order of $1000 value. If you put 10 in a coupon amount, the person that referred him will get $100 coupon code.
  • Coupon amount: Fixed value or percentage, depending on the discount type you choose. Entered without a currency unit or a percent sign, which are added automatically, e.g., Enter ’10’ for $10 or 10%.
  • Products: Products that the coupon will be applied to, or that need to be in the cart in order for the “Fixed cart discount” to be applied. If using this option, make sure to enter product ID's here, not product slug or name.
  • Exclude products:  Products that the coupon will not be applied to, or that cannot be in the cart in order for the “Fixed cart discount” to be applied. If using this option, make sure to enter product ID's here, not product slug or name.
  • Product categories:  Product categories that the coupon will be applied to, or that need to be in the cart in order for the “Fixed cart discount” to be applied. Write category ID-s, separated by a comma.
  • Exclude categories:  Product categories that the coupon will not be applied to, or that cannot be in the cart in order for the “Fixed cart discount” to be applied. Write category ID-s, separated by a comma.
  • Coupon Duration: This option allows you to set how many days coupon should last, type number, like 30.
  • Minimum Order: You can define minimum order subtotal in order for the coupon to work. So for example, if you put 50, it means that order subtotal needs to be at least 50 for referral link to create a coupon. 
  • Individual Use: Check this box if the coupon cannot be used in conjunction with other coupons. 
  • Limit usage to X items - The maximum number of individual items this coupon can apply to when using product discounts. Leave blank to apply to all qualifying items in cart.
  • Generate a coupon on every nth referral - By default, coupons are generated on every referral order. If you want to generate on every third,  place number 3, on every 5th, place number 5 and so on. Leave empty for default - on every order.
The only mandatory field here is Coupon type and Coupon Amount. All other fields are just optional.
Leaving “Products” and “Exclude Products” blank allows the coupon to be applied to the entire store.
IMPORTANT: Coupons are created and sent after an order is marked as complete.
