Creating a Coupon for Your Online Store

Customer coupons are an excellent way to increase your online sales, and PayGo makes it easy to create and utilize coupons online. In your PayGo software, coupons can be created, given a code and applied just as easily as they would in your brick-and-mortar shops.

To create a new coupon, click the New Inventory button on your Menu Screen. This will take you to the Inventory Quick Add Screen. In the PayGo Item box at the top  of the screen, there is an Inventory Type drop-down field. Click on this and select Coupon. You can also name the coupon in this box and add what department, category or class the coupon will be in, if you choose. For more information on departments, see Define Departments – Keep your Inventory Organized with PayGo.

When the Coupon inventory type is chosen, the WooCommerce box at the bottom of the screen will change to two tabs.

The Coupon Info tab is where you will enter all relevant information about the coupon you are creating.

WooCommerce ID – This is an automatically-generated ID number for your coupon.

Coupon Code – This is where you will create the coupon’s online code. This code is what your customers will enter during checkout in the payment section of your online store.

Amount ($ or %) – This is where you will enter the numerical value of the coupon you are creating. You will choose whether this numerical value is a dollar amount or percentage off in the Type field.

Type – This is a drop-down field where you will be able to choose whether your coupon is a certain percentage off, a fixed amount off of the customer’s entire cart, or a fixed amount off of a single product.

Description – This is where you will add a brief description of the coupon you’re creating.

Usage Count – This is where you can set how many times this coupon can be used.

Expires On – This is where you can enter an expiration date for this coupon.

Individual Use – This is a box you can check to make the coupon for individual use only.

# of Times Usable – This is where you can set how many times a customer can use the coupon.

Limit Per Customer – This is where you can set an item limit per customer.

Exclude on Sale Items – This is a box you can check to exclude the coupon’s use on sale items.

Min Order – This is where you can set the minimum amount required for a customer to use the coupon.

Max Order Amount – This is where you can set the maximum amount required for a customer to use the coupon.

When you are finished filling out the information in this tab, click the Categories tab.

The Categories tab is where you can choose to include or exclude certain categories from your online store for use with this coupon. There are ten fields for each.

When you are finished entering all information, click the Add/Update button at the top of the screen. This will save your changes and apply them to your online store as well.
