With Zen Cart’s Coupons system you can take advantage of the holidays and create exclusive promotions on your store that will surely increase the amount of items you sell and make your customers happy.
To create a new Coupon, you will need to access your admin area and navigate to the Gift Certificate/Coupons>Coupon Admin section from the main admin panel.
Next, you will see the discount coupon page where you will be able to insert a new coupon.
Here are the settings which you must configure:
When you are ready, click on the preview>confirm buttons to finalize the coupon creation.
Now that you have created a coupon, you will have a few additional options for it. If you click on the email button, you will be able to send the coupon to a specific customer.
You will be able to add a personal message, which is a good way to show your appreciation of your customers
Click on the send mail button when you are ready to send the email(s).
Another nice option which you can configure is the restrictions one.
Here, you can restrict the coupon’s availability on certain categories and products. This will give you more flexibility and control over your product’s prices and discounts.
The last option we are going to review is the Coupon Report. In it you can see how many times a coupon has been redeemed in total, and per customer, which is handy in determining the success of your promotions.
Congratulations, you can now fully manage the Discount Coupons on your Zen Cart based website.
