Stepwise process of how to create coupon codes:

To download the Coupon Code extension, you need to visit the All Extensions Page of EventPrime website. If you already have the EventPrime Premium bundle, you do not need to download the extension separately.

Once the extension is downloaded, install from your WordPress dashboard area and follow the steps below.

Step 1: Go to the left menu bar and find EventPrime. In the drop-down, you will find the Coupons menu item. Click and open the Coupons page

Step 2: Here you can click on ‘Add Coupon’ to create new coupon codes.

Step 3: Now, add a coupon name, and coupon code. Coupon name is for internal purpose while coupon code is the text string which users will enter on the checkout page.

Note: Your coupon code should be unique for every coupon. Otherwise, the page will show an error.

Step 4: Further, you can set discount and discount type. Two discount types are fix amounts or percentages. Also, you can set an expiration date and status of the event coupon code.

Set Coupon Usage Limit

Step 5: You can set a limit on usage per customer as well as on the total number of times the coupon can be used.

For example, if you set the ‘Uses Per Customer’ to 1, a user can use the code only once. In addition to that, if you set the ‘Limit By Total Uses’ to 10, then the coupon code can only be used 10 times (either by one user or by different users). The coupon code will be automatically deactivated as soon as the coupon code limit is reached.

Step 6: You can also add a description before saving. Coupon description can be used to describe the purpose of the coupon and is not visible to the user.

Step 7: The coupon will appear in the list on your Coupons page. You can create more coupons, and manage and edit your coupons from this page.

      I’d like to clarify that while our EventPrime plugin is compatible with the Divi theme, the Event Calendar extension is a separate plugin from EventPrime.
