##Setup the Coupon Add-On

After you have installed and activated the Coupon Add-On, you are now ready to setup a Coupon feed. A Coupon feed allows you to integrate the Coupon functionality with a Gravity Form to create a Coupon Pricing Field. The Coupon field works in conjunction with the other pricing fields, taking the total of all of the fields, and applying a discount.

##Creating a Coupon Compatible Gravity Form

This document assumes you know how to create a form. For information on creating a form, visit creating a form. Before we create a Coupon Feed, we will want to create a form to map the feed.

It is required that you include one at least one Product Field and one Total Field to use the Coupon Field. While the other fields are not explicitly required, they are recommended to get the best out of the Coupon Add-On.

##Setup a Coupon Feed

  1. Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 11.12.16 AM To create your new Coupon Feed, hover over Forms, and then select Coupons.

  2. coupons Once you have selected Coupons, select the option Add New in the top left to start creating your Coupon Feed.

  3. Coupon_form Once you have selected Add New, select the form you would like to map your feed to from the Gravity Form dropdown.

  4. Coupon_code Once you have selected your form, you will need to fill in the information under Coupon Basics. The Coupon Basics are pretty self-explanatory. Coupon Name: Create the name you would like your Coupon to have. Coupon Code: Create whatever coupon code you would like your customer to input upon checkout. This can consist of letters, numbers, or symbols of any order.

  5. Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 11.58.16 AM For the Coupon Amount you can either select Flat($) or Percentage(%).

  • Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 12.04.04 PM If you select Flat($) the customer will receive a certain dollar amount off of their product. For example if you selected Flat($), and then set the amount to $1.00, the customer would receive $1.00 off of their purchase. If we apply what we see in the image to the right ($1.00 off coupon), to a product that originally cost $10.00, the customer would only pay $9.00 in total.

  • Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 12.05.54 PMHowever, if you selected Percentage, the customer will pay a certain percent less on their product. For instance, if you set the coupon amount to 10%, their product would then be marked down 10% from what it originally was. If we apply what see in the image to the right (10% off coupon), to a product that originally cost $20.00, the customer would only pay $18.00.

  1. start Once you have selected the appropriate information for the Coupon Amount, select the date you would like your coupon to be validated. Your customer will not be able to use this coupon until after this date.

  2. End Similar to Start Date, End Date will restrict when this coupon can be used. End Date however determines when the coupon expires, rather than when it becomes valid.

  3. Usage_limit After selecting your End Date, type in the number corresponding to the amount of times you would like your customers to be able to use this coupon. If you type “2” into the box to the right, your customer will only be able to use this coupon twice.

  4. stackable By default, the Stackable option is not enabled. If you would like your customers to be able to use multiple coupons in one purchase, select the Stackable option.
