301: Creating coupon codes in OpenCart
If you are an online shopper, you have probably used coupon codes before. Coupon codes can be a great motivator for customers to actually make a purchase on your website. Coupon codes can be a series of letters and numbers the customer enters during the checkout process to receive a discount on their order. This can be anything from a monetary value, percentage off their entire order, or free shipping. Coupon codes are created in the OpenCart Dashboard.
How to create coupon codes in OpenCart
- Log into your OpenCart Dashboard
- Go to Sales > Coupons.
- To create a new coupon code, click Insert in the top right of the screen.
- Once you have filled in the fields for the coupon click Save in the upper right corner. Your coupon code is now ready to use.

Hi there, i have created a coupon; all fields i've filled out are correct as far as i'm aware, as i've followed a tutorial online. now in the checkout section i type in my code making sure it's an item covering the coupon and it's saying "Warning: Coupon is either invalid, expired or reached it's usage limit!" my website is not yet live, i was just testing in the cart to make sure it is working?

Thank you for your question. I found a lot of people with similar issues using OpenCart coupons.
In the Official OpenCart Forum, they discuss several solutions. That is most likely the best starting point for troubleshooting the problem.
