Coupon codes are used to give discounts to learners who self-enroll in courses. To create a new coupon code, click the “New Coupon Code” link at the top of the page. To update the properties of an existing coupon code, click on the button for the coupon code in the list.
Note: This section only becomes visible when a payment gateway is implemented in the E-Commerce section of the System menu.
Once you have created a coupon code and given it to your learners, they will go to your catalog, and where there is usually an “Enroll” button, there will be an “Add to Cart” link. Once clicked, they will go to their cart, click the “Coupon Code” icon next to the course they wish to discount, and put the coupon code in the pop-up window. If the coupon code is correct and set to apply to the item, the discount will be applied, and the user will be able to click “Checkout” and purchase the item at a discounted rate.
If the coupon code makes the item free, once the coupon code is applied in the user’s shopping cart, the item will be immediately removed from the shopping cart and added to their enrollments. They will not need to click the “Checkout” button.
