How to Create a Coupon Code

1. Go into your Simple Store manager, select the Coupons tab, then click on “CREATE COUPON” button.

2. In coupon editor, enter a "code" for your coupon to apply the discount at checkout. Our suggestion is to keep it short (easy to remember) but not too easy to guess.

3. Next, set the expiration date for your offer. Note that the coupon will expire at 11:59PM in your time zone.

4. Now, you can set the type of discount you’d like to offer. There are 3 types of discounts you can offer your customer in Simple Store:

Percentage-based discount

A percentage-based discount is a specific percentage applied on a price. You can set a percentage-based discounts for:

  • All orders (excluding shipping)
  • Orders over fixed amount (excluding shipping)
  • Specific products

Flat discount

A flat discount is a set monetary amount off a price. You can set a flat discount for:

  • Any orders (excluding shipping)
  • Orders over fixed amount (excluding shipping)

Free shipping discount

A free shipping discount overrides shipping cost in an order. You can set free shipping discounts for any order or orders over a fixed price.  

5. After you fill out all information for a coupon, click on “Save” button on bottom right to launch your coupon!

Coupon Management

Once you’ve set up your coupon codes, you’ll be able to manage it in your "Coupon Dashboard". You’ll be able to delete the coupon or reactivate your coupon after it expires by setting a new expiration date.

However, you won’t be able to change the coupon code or coupon offer once a coupon has been created. Once orders start coming in, you’ll be able to view how many times a coupon has been used in your coupon dashboard. You can add up to 100 coupons for your Simple Store.

Coupons in the Checkout Process

Your customers will see the discount applied immediately after entering the coupon code during the checkout process. The percentage-based and flat discounts will be applied pre-shipping to your customer's entire order. The free shipping discount will be shown after your customers enter their shipping addresses. Buyers will not be able to stack discounts, only one discount can redeemed per order.

 

The free shipping discount will be shown after your customers enter shipping address.

Promoting discounts

You can distribute your coupon codes to your customers through email, or share your coupon code on social media. You can also show promote your offer on your site to allow all visitors to use it.
