Coupons are a great way to incentivize customers to purchase on your website. You can offer discounts, free shipping, or other promotions to encourage shoppers to complete a transaction. In this article, we'll explore how to create coupons for your UENI website.
You can manage your coupons for the Shopping Cart settings in the Editor.

Step 1: Log in to the Editor
First, log in to your Hub and click the "Edit Website" button.
Step 2: Go to Settings and select Shopping Cart

You will need to connect a PayPal account to your website before you can create coupons. Simply click on Connect with PayPal. For more information on how to do this, read our help article.
Step 1: Click on "Add coupon"
Step 2: Select Coupon Type
To create a coupon, you'll need to decide on the coupon type you want. We currently offer three types of coupons: percentage discount, fixed discount and free shipping.
- % Discount coupons apply a percentage-based discount on shopping cart checkout. This means the discount amount varies according to the total amount of the order.
- Fixed Discount coupons apply a flat discount over the total of the order.
- Free Shipping coupons set all shipping costs to zero on checkout.
Step 3: Fill in Coupon Details and Settings
Depending on the coupon you choose, you will need to fill in the relevant fields, including the coupon code, discount values and other type-specific parameters. The coupon name and coupon code are mandatory for all coupons.
- Coupon name. A name to identify your coupon. The coupon name must be under 25 characters.
- Coupon code. This is the code that your customers can redeem. The coupon code must be unique and contain only letters and numbers with no special characters. It must be between 6 and 25 characters long.
On the final step of the coupon-creation wizard, clicking on the "Add coupon" button saves your coupon. It is now ready for use!
You can also promote your offers on your social media platforms to incentivisen purchases. This is very easy: just open the coupon you want to share and click on the any of the "Share Coupon" links.
