Example: Auto coupon

Let the customer have a discount of $ 5.00 when the cart reaches $ 50.00.

  1. Create a coupon, let’s name it auto_50bucks and enter a short description e.g. $ 50.00 order discount
  2. On the General tab: Select discount type Cart discount, and set the coupon amount to $ 5.00
  3. On the Usage restrictions tab: Set minimum spend to $ 50.00 and check the Auto coupon-box

Voila! The discount will be applied when the customer reaches $ 50.00 and a descriptive message will be shown.

If the restrictions are no longer met, it will silently be removed from the cart.

Example: Apply coupon via an URL

Apply coupon through an url like this:

  1. Use the url www.example.com/url-to-shop?apply_coupon=my_coupon&fill_cart=123

Voila! Any coupon can be applied this way. Please note that an empty cart can not contain any coupons. Download the free Cart Links for WooCommerce-plugin to handle the ‘fill_cart’-part of the url.

This plugin has been tested in combination with WPML and WP-Multilang.

Is the plugin translatable?

Yes, all string values are translatable through the supplied POT/PO/MO files. In WPML translatable items appear in the context woocommerce-jos-autocoupon in “String Translations”.

Why isn’t my coupon applied using www.example.com?apply_coupon=my_coupon ?

The coupon will only be applied if the url links to a WooCommerce page (e.g. product loop / cart / product detail ) and at least one product is in the cart.
An empty cart can not have any coupons. The PRO version of this plugin has a work around for this though; it will ‘remember’ the coupon and apply it at the moment the cart contains a product.

The cart is not updated after changing the payment method

In your theme add class “update_totals_on_change” to the container (div / p / whatever) that holds the payment method radio buttons.
You can do this by overriding woocommerce/templates/checkout/payment.php (place it in your_template/woocommerce/checkout/).

The cart is not updated after changing the billing email address

Paste this snippet in your theme’s functions.php:

//Update the cart preview when the billing email is changed by the customer
add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields', function( $checkout_fields ) {
    $checkout_fields['billing']['billing_email']['class'][] = 'update_totals_on_change';
    return $checkout_fields;    
} );

Reviews

Excellent customer service.

Sent an inquiry regarding a rare use case possibility. It wasn’t possible under the current plugin but they’re willing to make the customization in a small amount of time for a very reasonable development rate. All correspondence took place within a couple hours of initial inquiry even with a large timezone difference. Very impressed. I deal with plugin and theme developers regularly and VERY few offer this kind of help nor do they do it so quickly.

Amazing and Accommodating Support

Not only is this an easy-to-use plugin (seamlessly integrates with the core Coupon System even with the Official WooCommerce Smart Coupons Plugin enabled), but the support is phenomenal! Our client had a very specific coupon / free offer requirement and the developers of this plugin didn’t even hesitate a minute to assist us with a Child Theme Friendly Snippet to accommodate this request. So many plugin developers just shrug their shoulders when you ask them for help, but not Soft 79. THEY WERE BRILLIANTLY ACCOMMODATING!

Works as expected and is a great extension to WooCommerce

I use it to simply (and free) offer percentage discount based on the value of cart contents. For this, I have different coupons (discount levels) and automagically the correct coupon is used.

Since I don’t want to use coupons manually, I just used

.coupon {
  display: none;
}

Get the PRO version

Update:
Wow. The customer support was very fast. Once I purchased the pro version, I was able to do everything I needed to do. Love this plugin!

Original review:
I really wanted to give this plugin 5 stars as for the most part, it seems to have functioned as intended. However, there is a bug with the “percentage discount”. I had set it so that a 50% discount is applied on one item when a customer orders two items that are similar in nature. It works, but the problem is that the coupon automatically takes 50% off from the highest costing item. Example: Customer orders a cheese pizza ($10) and a supreme ($20). Instead of applying a $5 discount, the coupon code will give the customer $10 off. I’m not sure if this is a restriction of the non-paid version, but if it is, I don’t think it should be provided as an option at all for the free version if it’s behaving this way. I had already implemented the plugin without being aware of this behavior and as a result, my client had to honor some pretty expensive orders.
