My coupon URL links aren’t working. They show as 404 when visiting them, why is that?

There are two main causes for this:
1. The permalinks are not flushed properly. This can be due to a conflict with another plugin or other code modifying the permalinks and not flushing them properly. To solve this, visit the Settings->Permalinks page and hit save. Then try visiting your coupon URL again.
2. The permalink structure selected is incompatible. URL Coupons for WooCommerce requires that you are NOT using the “Default” permalink structure. Try switching to the “Post Name” permalink structure in Settings->Permalink and hit save. Then try visiting your coupon URL again.


Does not seem to work any more

I think that the developers of this plugin have abandoned it (there is a message that they have ceased business operations on their site).

This plugin should be removed because it no longer works, and is clearly never going to be updated.

Very good

It saved me a lot of my time!
I set up my store to easily add a product to the cart with a coupon.
It’s great for newsletters coupons, as in my case.

Works great but has two defects that can be fixed easily

Good plugin but I think i found two defects:

1. To apply the coupon the link should be http://www.example.com/coupon?code=couponcode and NOT http://www.example.com/coupon/couponcode

2. When clicking the URL to add the coupon, if the cart is empty or there is no session yet, the coupon won’t persist. Also no error will be returned in this case. To solve this, just needs to persist a session cookie before calling the WC->cart->add_discount function.

// Set a session cookie to persist the coupon in case the cart is empty.
WC()->session->set_customer_session_cookie( true );
