Enticing product discounts give shoppers one more reason to buy from you. Your Volusion store’s coupon and discount settings are flexible, they’re robust, and they’re really easy to use, so customers can save and you can earn – it’s a win-win.
Coupons and discounts are easy to use, but first, you have to understand the difference between the two. A coupon requires your customers to enter a code you provide them before they receive the special price reduction. A discount however, is applied automatically to a customer’s cart.
Let’s take a look at a few examples.
With Order Price Requirements, you can give customers a price break when their order exceeds a certain amount – for example, 10% off orders greater than $50.
Or, with Quantity Requirements you can use the “buy more, save more” model and offer $5 off to customers who buy three or more of a certain item. And with tiered discount levels, you can give them even more incentive when they buy ten or more!
Now there's three types of coupons that customers can redeem.
An Unlimited-Use coupon code can be redeemed by anyone, anywhere, an infinite number of times.
A One-Time Use Per Customer coupon is only valid once per customer*.
One-Time Use coupons are only active one time – the code becomes void after the first time and only time it’s used.
Now these are only a few ways you can customize your coupons and discounts. For more information, you can check out our Knowledge Base at support.volusion.com and search for "coupon" or "discount".
