Now you need to fill in the necessary value for the new coupon:
- Coupon Code
This is the "code" a customer needs to fill in to redeem this coupon. This can be a simple word or a secret string with numbers and characters.
- Percent or Total
Here you can choose wether the coupon value is a percentage of the cart total or a fixed total value.
- Coupon Type
There are two types of coupons: Gift Coupons and Permanent Coupons. Gift Coupons are removed from the database once they have been used to place an order. Permanent Coupons can be used for campaigns, because they can be used again and again until you remove them from the coupon list.
This is the numeric discount value of this coupon.
