Stores on Design Kollective have the ability to create coupons that customers can use when checking out online or in store. To create or manage your store's coupons, go to your store admin area and select the "Coupons” option. All the customization options for coupons are described below:

Name

The name of the coupon. This is displayed to customers after they've added a coupon to their order. If this coupon is for a summer sale, you might call it something like "Summer 2018 Sale!"

Code

The coupon code used by customers to add this coupon to their order. For the summer sale mentioned above, a good code might be something like "mystoresummer18". These codes must be unique across Design Kollective, so including the name of your store is encouraged.

Discount Percentage

If this coupon should be for a percentage of the total product cost, enter a number from 1-99 here. Either a discount percentage or a discount amount must be specified, but not both.

Discount Amount

If this coupon should be for a fixed dollar amount, enter it here. If discount amount is specified, minimum subtotal must also be specified, at a number value less than the discount amount. Either a discount percentage or a discount amount must be specified, but not both.

Allowed Use

Allows you to limit a coupon to either online or in-person purchases. If a coupon's allowed use is either "Any" or "Online Only", it will be usable for purchases made on designkollective.com. If it is "In-Person Only", the coupon will only be usable for purchases made directly through your store. Note: Customers can only use one coupon per store per order when purchasing online.

Max Uses

Leave blank to allow the coupon to be used an unlimited number of times, or specify the maximum number of times it can be used.

Expires At

Leave blank to create a coupon that never expires, or select a date/time after which the coupon cannot be added to any additional orders.

Minimum Subtotal

Optional for percentage discount coupons, required for fixed discount amount coupons. If set, the subtotal of items from your store eligible to be used with this coupon must be greater than or equal to the specified minimum subtotal in order to add this coupon to an order.

First Purchase Only

Whether or not users will not be able to add this coupon to orders if they have previously made a purchase from your store.

Apply to Sale Products

Whether products that are on sale should be discounted by this coupon. Note: if this option is disabled, products on sale will not apply to the minimum subtotal calculation.

Apply to Trade Discount Products

Whether products that have had a trade discount applied should be discounted by this coupon. Note: if this option is disabled, trade discounted products will not apply to the minimum subtotal calculation.


Announcing Coupons to Contacts

After creating a coupon, you can optionally send it out to all your store's contacts on Design Kollective. When viewing your store's coupons, click the "Email Contacts…" button on the right-hand side to get started.

Send At

When your contacts should be emailed about this coupon. Defaults to the current date and time. If you accidentally schedule a coupon email, don't worry! Newly-scheduled emails are guaranteed not to be sent for at least two minutes, so you can cancel any accidental announcements.

Additional Message

If you'd like to provide any additional information in the email, you can add it here. This is optional. If provided, your text will be added near the top of the sent messages.

Preview Email

The email to deliver to when using the "Send Preview" button. Defaults to your user account email, but can be changed to any email address you'd like to test.
