Where can I find more about WooCommerce Coupons?
The Flexible PDF Coupons WooCommerce plugin uses the built-in WooCommerce Coupons for creating discount codes in your store. Read more about WooCommerce Coupons. You will learn how to enable WooCommerce Coupons. Also, to choose the WooCommerce coupon settings and the coupon usage limitations.
Why the plugin uses the WooCommerce Coupon codes?
Because the WooCommerce coupon codes are by default the built-in feature of your store. That means that you may use the same place for managing your coupons in WooCommerce and coupons for gift cards. Also, you will be able to use similar settings, edit the WooCommerce coupon if you need to, or export the data about all WooCommerce coupons.
Can I let buyers name the coupon price?
Yes. You can allow your customers to define the custom price for the gift card with the Custom Price for WooCommerce free plugin. Read more and learn how to have Custom price gift cards based on user input in WooCommerce.
Are there any alternatives to WooCommerce Coupons?
If you want to sell your products with flexible pricing & discounts based on the quantity, order value, the number of items, you could use a plugin to create such discounts for you. Many of them have an option to dynamically show better prices for specific user roles or customer groups. If you are interested in such a plugin (instead of the one that uses WooCommerce Coupons & coupon codes) check the article about WooCommerce Pricing & Product Tables Plugins, Tools & Pro-Sales Tips. I hope you’ll find the right tool for your store that may work instead of or with WooCommerce Coupons & Gift Cards 🙂
