Step 2 ) Under Add Coupon/Discount create a coupon discount code. For this example I have created a discount Coupon Code package, with a Discount Rate of 5%. No Expiry Date added. Make sure you click on Save Coupon button when you finish setting it up.

Note: It saves the discount code that is used in a transaction in the order interface. So if you edit an order from the cart orders menu, you will be able to see what coupon or discount code was used for that transaction.

That is how simple it is to create a discount coupon code for your products.

I will be updating this post from time to time. So keep coming back for more.
