Before You Begin¶
As coupons are linked to promotions, make sure that promotions are enabled in your system. For more information on configuration of promotions, see the relevant Configure Promotions topic, or refer to your administrator.
Enabling promotions allows you to perform the following actions with coupons:
- See Coupons under Marketing > Promotions > Coupons in the main menu of the management console.
- View and add coupons to orders in the management console.
- Apply coupons in shopping lists and checkout in the storefront.
Coupons can be created manually or generated. Usually, you create coupons manually when you need a small number of them (e.g. 2), or generate coupons when you need many (e.g. 1000).
