    Hi,

    My question is related to voucher and coupon.
    As lifterLMS’ documentation, coupon is used to give discount to a user for a course. While voucher is used to activate an account from offline course selling.
    So coupon is online and course-based, while voucher is offline and account-based.
    Am I correct?

    Now, if I want a course to be sold offline (for a user already have account), how do you suggest I’m doing this?
    My thought is to use a 100% discount coupon for the spesific course (or set of courses) for that spesific user.
    Is this a proper way to do this?

    Thank you

    @rahyrs,

    The way you are currently doing this is absolutely acceptable.

    There are a number of differences between coupons and vouchers but they can often be used interchangeably.

    I’ve just written an article on the differences between vouchers and coupons, please have a read and, I hope, that can help you decide which you should (or would like) to use given your needs.

    Here it is: https://lifterlms.com/docs/difference-voucher-coupon/

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for your reply.

    After reading your article, I’m convinced that what I need is voucher:
    – bulk generation for B2B selling course.
    – access to certain courses by certain number of students (options of students x course)
    – because it will be sold offline, it doesn’t need order process.

    Before reading the article, there was one thing about redemption I’m not clear how to handle:
    – because the voucher redemption can occur frequently, not everytime needs new registration (new users). For those already have account can buy new voucher or be given new voucher by the employer.

    Examples:
    – individual student: I can package the courses according to some criteria (topic, level, etc). The student can buy (maybe after register to the site) voucher for Package A, offline. After finishing all courses in Package A, he wants to buy new voucher for Package B.
    – company client: the HRD can give a voucher for the employee for Level 1 courses. After finishing Level 1, the employees can be given new vouchers for Level 2.

    In the article you wrote:
    “Vouchers can only be redeemed during new user registration (when enabled) and on the student’s dashboard.”

    Now I’m clear that this means student have 2 options to redeem: during registration (for new student) OR on the dashboard (when already registered).

    Excellent! Clear my confusion.

    Thanks again
