Creating a New Coupon - Step by step:
You can find the coupon codes add-on in the admin, under Finance >> Coupon Codes:
NOTE: This tab will appear only if you purchased the Coupon codes add-on or you got the VIP Add Ons Club.
If you have a new site, you don't need to have the other billing options you see in the picture above.
Next, click on the "New Coupon Code" button at the top right:
1. Enter Coupon Code
Please add the name of the coupon you want them to use.
For example: If it is a Facebook promo code with a 30% off, we do recommend to use a word and numbers that remember you what it is for.
2. Type of Discount
There are 3 types of discounts:
1. Percentage Discount: Ex.10% off, 30% off, 50%.
2. Fixed Value: $10 discount, $30 discount, $50 discount, $95 discount.
3. Price Override: The amount you are going to add, will override the membership's price.
3. Enter Value of Discount
In this field, you will type the percentage, value or new price for the coupon.
This will work with the type of discount you selected above.
4. Maximum uses
If you leave as "0" the coupon will be for unlimited uses.
If you type a number, the system will only allow that amount of uses.
Ex: If you want that only the first 5 people who use the coupon get the special discount, you just type "5" and the 6th person who got the coupon code will get an error if he tries to use it in the signup page.
5. Apply to Recurring Payments?
If YES, applies a discount to all recurring payments. If NO, only applies a discount to the first payment.
Ex: If you want to give them a permanent discount of 30%, you choose the option yes.
If you want to apply the discount only for the first payment, you need to choose: No.
NOTE: There is no way to give them 2 months off if you want the system to take the payments automatically.
If you want to do something like it should be done manually. You need to stop the order after the 2 months and create a new one with the full price.
6. Start Date
The start date will only apply for Coupons. So if you leave it blank the coupon can be used right away, if you want to add a date, the coupon can be used that date.
NOTE: This setting doesn't control the start date of the order itself.
7. Expiration Date
The expiration date will only apply for Coupons. So if you leave it blank the coupon will not expire, if you want to add a date, the coupon will expire that specific date.
NOTE: This setting doesn't control the expiration date of the order itself.
8. Internal Admin Notes
In this section, you can add any notes related to the coupon.
Ex: 30% OFF FB Code.
- Coupon codes will only apply to memberships, not products, leads or any other feature.
- We recommend to leave it live only the monthly or yearly membership levels while you are using coupon codes because if the member uses the coupon code for 100% off the first time in a yearly membership, he will get a year off.
