Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Extended Coupon Features FREE » Discount for first-time registrant, restrict discount by shipping address?

    Ok, so on our staging site we’ve setup an auto discount code so when a customer first signs up, they’ll receive a discount (so: restricted to customer role, 1 use per user). We’re aiming for this to be motivation to sign up for an account.

    One issue is… what’s to stop people from just signing up with a new account each time they come to purchase?

    So… is there any way we could tie this discount to their shipping address, i.e. instead of 1 use per user according to user code, it would be 1 use per user according to shipping address? If there’s no good work around, could this be a potential feature in a future update?

    There is not a 100% fool proof method for this.

    The PRO version of the plugin adds an option ‘First purchase only’ to the coupon. This uses the following methods to verify the first purchase:

    – Session cookie
    – Customer id
    – Email-address(es)

    Hmm, ya I can see how it’s tough to get a fool proof method. Shipping address seems to me to be the best bet: much more difficult for a person to get around than deleting cookies and using a different email address to register. Will look for a workaround perhaps with user roles or smt.

    Anyway, thanks for the quick reply/support.
