On EdisonOS, you can offer coupon codes to your learners and thus you have all the liberty to generate coupons for your product(s) with speed to encourage more orders to attract more potential customers.

So how can I add coupon code, you may ask. It is simple and here is a step-by-step guide on how to add coupon codes to your Products.

STEP 1: To generate Coupon Codes, click on the PRODUCT tab:



STEP 2: Once inside, click on the PROMOTIONS



STEP 3: You will find CREATE PROMOTION, click on that.



STEP 4: Give a suitable PROMOTION NAME. Promotion name is internal so it won't be visible to your learners.



STEP 5: Now you need to set the DISCOUNT TYPE for your promotion. A promotion with a good discount is an attempt to lure customers to buy your products .

Depending on what you want it to set for, you can set the promotion for a FLAT PROMOTION which would mean that the discount associated with a coupon code will be applied on the total order value not to individual products.



You can set the Flat promotion in a manner of amount off or as a percentage off, that's again totally upto you.Here we have put the flat promotion as an amount off type and fixed the Currency in INR.



The below snapshot would help you to understand how you can select the currency from the drop down list.



Also we have put the amount off as 1000 INR .



Lets proceed with the next steps for creating promotion:

Now its time to set the REDEMPTION LIMITS .

Redemption limit will allow you to Set an expiry date on the promotion. So check on the box that says Limit the date range when customers can redeem this promotion



Set an expiry date on the promotion.The below image can help you to choose and pick date for expiry on the promotion of your online course sale.



Also the REDEMPTION LIMITS helps you to limit the total number of times this promotion can be redeemed. So you can check the box which says Limit the total number of times this promotion can be redeemed



Note: This limit applies across customers so it won't prevent a single customer from redeeming multiple times.

Please set the limit on the number of times this promotion can be redeemed. Here for your understanding, we have set the limit as 10.



Check the box which says 'Limit the number of products on checkout



Now you can set a limit for the number of products during checkout



Now the final thing will be to generate coupons for your product(s) with speed to encourage more orders to attract more potential customers:

Enable the COUPON CODES option.



Once enabled, you will see the Coupon Type as SINGLE and BULK

When you want to generate only a SINGLE coupon for your product, readily you can go for the SINGLE coupon code creation option.

Next step will be to fill the CODE field


There are components to select from or choose all options for the single couple creation. Lets unfold one by one on what they actually mean:

You can see the first component says :*

Eligible for first time order only*. This means the learner can avail the promotion benefit only if they are buying the course for the first time. Please check the box if you want the coupon code for your course to be eligibile for first time order only



Next you will find the second component that says Limit for specific customer. This means the coupon code for the promotion is only valid for a specific learner and that other learners wouldnot be able to get the coupon code benefit.So if you wish to limit to a specific learner, please check the option that says Limit for specific customer



From the drop down , you can select a learner and you can make sure the selected learner is only eligible for the coupon code to purchase a product on a flat promotion.



Now you will need to set the coupon code redemption limit. This means you are allowing the learner (s) to apply the coupon code to a certain limit and its important to note that the coupon code will fail to get applied if learners try to cross the redemption limit of the coupon code.

You can check the box for Limit the number of times this code can be redeemed .We set the limit to 5.





You can decide the duration for which the coupon code will be valid .

Now you can add an expiry date for this coupon code. This coupon code can only be applied till a certain date, beyond which it will show the learner that the coupon code has expired .

Incase you have a plan to promote a course packed with a solid coupon code for a limited timeframe so as to boost more sales, then please check the box that says Add an expiration date



Click the calendar option and Pick a suitable date as per your requirement :We have choosen the date as 1st December, 2021. You can choose your own.



Finally click on the CREATE PROMOTION button to save the data

Lets now understand the other way to generate coupon. So I would love to tell you that you can also generate COUPON CODE by way of bulk coupon creation, this method will eventually save your time and minimise the effort to manually create coupon one by one. Let's understand how coupon code at bulk can be generated:



First please fill the field for Number of Coupons .Here you specify the total coupon codes that you plan to generate. To give you an understanding, We have kept the number of coupon field as 30.



NOTE: This is a mandatory field ,so please make sure you fill it.

Now you will see the second component that says Length of Coupon Code Though this is not a mandatory field to fill, still you can set the length of the coupon code as per your requirement.



If you skip this field, by default the length of the coupon code would be set as 10.

Next you will find the Coupon prefix.It means you add a word, letter, or number placed before.



Next you will find the Coupon Suffix. It means a letter or a group of letters that is added to the end of a word.



There are options to check from or choose all. Lets unfold one by one on what they actually mean:

You can see the first component says :*

Eligible for first time order only*. This means the learner can avail the promotion benefit only if they are buying the course for the first time. Please check the box if you want the coupon code for your course to be eligibile for first time order only



Next you will find the second component that says Limit for specific customer.

From the drop down , you can select a learner and you can make sure the selected learner is only eligible for the coupon code to purchase a product on a flat promotion.



Now you will need to set the coupon code redemption limit. This means you are allowing the learner (s) to apply the coupon code to a certain limit and ensuring the redemption limit is not exceeded.

You can check the box for Limit the number of times this code can be redeemed .Then We have set the limit to 4.



Here we have set the limit to 4
