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?

Hello robbie,

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.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
John-Paul
