Do I Use Coupons or Order Rules

There are two ways to set up coupons. You can use a coupon (which is an actual item in the database) or you can use Order Rules using Coupon Codes. Each has advantages and disadvantages. 

Regular Coupon

  • The amount off is applied on a separate line and does not show for each individual item
  • Pro - Has limitations for number of uses
  • Con - Can't be used for things such as Free Freight
