Managing Promotions and Coupons

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Promotions and Coupons is a central location in Znode where Administrators can create promotional discounts based on a product retail or sale price.

Three types of promotional pricing exist, including:

  • Promotion Without Coupon Code - Promotion is automatically applied on the Shopping Cart page to the Order Total.

  • Promotion With a Unique Coupon Code - Promotion applied by Customer during checkout. Associated with a large number of unique and non-repetitive Coupon Codes.

  • Promotion With Normal Coupon Code - Promotion applied by Customers during checkout. Associated with a single Coupon Code.

In this section, Administrators can create and manage the discounts for all of their Stores. Each promotion can optionally have a coupon. These coupons have a unique code. The customer has to enter the code during the checkout process to apply the discount. Different types of discounts can be offered that are applied to the "discount" line of the Shopping Cart:

  • A fixed amount of the product price.
