How to Setup and Use Coupons
A coupon is a voucher that can be redeemed and allows a customer to get a discount on the price of your courses or allows them to get your courses for free.
Coupons are a great way to drive traffic and sales to your courses.
In this article, we will learn how to create and use coupon codes on onlinecoursehost.com
We will go over these simple steps
- Creating a coupon
- Making an offer
- setting a deadline
- sharing your coupon link
STEP 1: Creating a coupon
To create a new coupon go to your course page, on the course you want to make a coupon for, click Edit >> Price & Coupons.
In the course coupons tab, click the plus sign Create New Coupon at the bottom of the screen.
STEP 2: Making an offer
Once you have clicked on Create New Coupon, a pop-up window will appear. Here, you can input the following:
- The title of the coupon code.
Note that all letters must be in CAPITAL and can only contain alphanumeric characters, dashes, or underscore as indicated below the coupon code field.
- The price of the coupon: You can make this a free coupon by toggling the Free coupon slider. Leaving it unticked means this coupon will be purchased.
- The discounted price. This is the price that will be displayed on the course sales page.
- The number of coupons you want to create.
STEP 3: Setting a deadline
Now you want to set a deadline for your coupon. This is when your coupon code expires and can no longer be used or effective in purchasing the course.
To do this, click on the field 'Coupon Deadline' and choose a deadline date on the pop-up calendar that appears.
Note that adding a deadline to your coupon is optional, as a coupon can be applied to a course forever.
Afterward, you click on Create Coupon.
Congratulations! Your coupon is created and already applied to the course.
The coupon will display on the course sales page for your students to use in purchasing your course.
STEP 4: Sharing your coupon link
Now that you have created your coupon code, you can also get the coupon code link and share it directly with your students.
They can manually input the coupon code you give to them on the course landing page and click apply, then the discount takes effect.
Or they can use the coupon link you share with them and the coupon will automatically be applied to the course landing page when they open the coupon link.
To get your coupon link simply click on the course Edit button >> Price and coupons, scroll to the where Course Coupons tab, and click on Get Link.
NOTE: Here, you can see all the details of your coupon, as well as the Coupon code, Price, and Amount of coupons remaining.
You can also deactivate/activate your coupon anytime by toggling the 'Active' slider button. Also, a coupon once created cannot be deleted but can only be deactivated.
