You can create coupons tied to specific Associates, items, and regions on the Coupons page. Coupons discount an order’s cost, as well as the QV, CV, and Bonuses.

  Coupons for AutoShips are not currently supported. However, Global Coupons will apply to an initial AutoShip order but not for each recurring payment. A developer can use the Autoships.ApplyAutoshipCouponCodes Hook to create custom AutoShip coupon logic.

For more information, see Creating Global Coupons.

Selecting Order Types

When creating inventory items, you select the Order Types while adding a Price Adjustment.

Configure the coupon to work for specific or multiple Order Types.

  • None - By default, the coupon will apply to all Order Types.

  • Standard

  • AutoShip

  • Enrollment

  • VolumeAdjustment

    1. Click the Order Types field and select an Order Type.

    2. Repeat for each Order Type.

Setting Coupon Promotion Period

  1. In the Begin Date field, select the day the coupon will be first available.

  2. You can set an expiration date in the End Date field or leave it blank for coupons that never expire.

      The coupon will be usable through 11:59 PM of the End Date field’s entry.

    If not set, the End Date defaults to 12/31/9999.

Selecting Qualified Items

If you selected the Item Discount Coupons Type, you need to choose the corresponding SKU(s).

  1. Click the SKUs field to see a dropdown of all available SKUs.

  2. Start typing in the field to narrow the list.

  3. Click the SKU to apply.

      Associates must add every SKU selected to the order for the discount to apply.
  4. Repeat for every necessary SKU.

Selecting Regions

Limit coupons to specific regions.

  1. Click the Regions field and select every region necessary.

  If you want the coupon to apply to all regions, it is best to leave this field blank. That way, if you ever add a new region, you won’t have to update the coupon.

Selecting Associates

In the Back Office IDs field, you can select Associates who will qualify for the coupon.

  1. Use the search bar under the Back Office IDs field to find an Associate’s IDs.

  2. Select each Associate as necessary.

    The selected Associates can only use the coupon once unless the Recurring checkbox is enabled.

  Coupons with no IDs selected will apply to all Associates.

Selecting Price Groups

Limit your coupon usage to specific Price Groups.

  1. Click the Price Groups field.

  2. Select from the list of available Price Groups.

    You can select as many as you need.

      You can also type the Price Group name, then press Enter on your keyboard to set the value.

Enabling Reusable Coupons

  1. Check the Recurring checkbox to allow coupon reuse.

    When a coupon is non-recurring and assigned to multiple Associates, the first Associate to use it gets it, and then it’s gone for the rest. When you enable Recurring setting, everyone can use it (limited to once per order) unless otherwise defined by the Web Office Admin and eCommerce Admin’s Multi-Faceted Configuration.

    If you leave the Recurring checkbox unchecked and add Back Office IDs to the coupon, the added Associates will each be allowed to use the coupon once.
