Creating a Coupon
Below, the various coupon settings are explained.
Coupon Code - This field will be auto-populated with a randomly generated coupon code. Change the coupon code here if needed. Coupon codes should NOT contain spaces, quotes, or any other non alpha-numeric symbol. Only alphanumeric characters, hyphens, or underscores should be used.
Discount - The discount that will be applied to every billing for the subscription this coupon is applied to. Can be any percent or fixed amount. For example, if you enter a discount of 10%, and the coupon is used for a monthly subscription, the 10% discount will be applied to every months billing for the life of the subscription. If the subscription is only a one-time payment, then the discount will only be applied to the first and only billing.
This coupon can be used _______ times. - This is the number of times this coupon can be used by an individual users. Defaults to unlimited (∞) times. Enter any whole number, entering a zero makes it unlimited. For example, if you enter five here, then that means that five different users can use the coupon. If a sixth user attempts to use it, no discount will be applied.
Override Trial Period - Check this option to override the trial period of any automatically recurring subscription. Does NOT apply to one-time memberships, so a coupon with this feature is used on one, this setting will be ignored.
# of Days - Enter the number of days you would like this override trial period to have. Values here that are multiples of 365 will show as years, multiples of 30 will show as months, multiples of 7 will show as weeks ... otherwise the trial will show up as days.
Trial Cost - Enter the cost of the trial this coupon will create. Can be any set amount. Percent discounts are not supported.
Coupon Expiration - Enable this option if you would like your coupon to expire. After the set date, any user who attempts to use the coupon will not be given the discount.
Apply coupon to the following Memberships - Here you can select which memberships the coupon will be applicable to. Only published memberships will show here. To select or deselect multiple memberships, simply hold the Control Key (Command Key on the Mac) and then make your selections.
Associate an Affiliate - This setting will only appear if you have our plugin Affiliate Royale (a download can be found on your Activate > Addons page of MemberPress), actively enabled on your site. Check the box to enable the setting, and then enter in the username of the affiliate you would like to associate this coupon with. Doing so will make it so any time the coupon is used, the entered affiliate will get a commission on the sale.
