How to Use Coupons in WooCommerce

WooCommerce allows you to add and manage coupons in your store. You can add as many coupons as you want and control necessary restrictions.

Any WooCommerce store manager will want to make use of the coupon system at some point. It is a great way to incentivize sales. For example, with a coupon, your customers may purchase items that they otherwise might not have. Likewise, you can provide coupon codes alongside advertisements to see which ads are driving more business to your store.
