What are Coupons?
MemberMouse provides you with the ability to offer discounts using coupon codes that purchasers can enter during checkout. They can be set to take a dollar or percentage off of the price, or make the item completely free. For subscription products, you can set the coupon to apply to the first payment or all payments. You also have the option to set start and end dates for coupon use, set a limit on the number of times a coupon may be used, or limit a coupon so that it only discounts certain products.
To access your coupon settings, open MemberMouse > Product Settings, and select the Coupons tab. Here, you can create new coupons, edit or delete existing coupons, and perform various other operations. For more information, please see our Managing Coupons article.
The screen shot below is an example of what the coupons tab will look like. Here you see all of your coupons, each of their settings and attributes including: description, payment applications, number redeemed, product restrictions and valid dates.
