Want better control over your coupons on the WooCommerce store?
While WooCommerce does have a built-in couponing feature, it’s not super flexible on its own and can run into difficulties when it comes to some of the more advanced deals and restrictions.
The WooCommerce coupon plugin offers a smoother way to integrate these types of deals (and many other features).
To help you improve your store, we’ve collected 6 useful WooCommerce coupon plugins in this article.
1. Advanced Coupons
WooCommerce Plugin Premium Coupons
Advanced Coupons is a popular option that has both a free version and a premium version with more features.
It’s integrated into the native WooCommerce coupons feature, so there’s no new interface to learn. Instead, it provides you with many new options to apply to your coupons. Using these settings, you will be able to create different types of deals and restrict their use.
One of the most flexible features is the shopping cart conditions, which allows you to mix and match different WooCommerce coupon limits as needed.
You’ll also get a dedicated buy one, get one free deal feature that allows you to create various types of “buy X, get X” deals. You can use the same product (e.g. “Buy 2 t-shirts and get 1 t-shirt for free”) or different products (e.g. “Buy a pair of sunglasses and get a glasses case for free”).
You can also.
Limits the use of coupons based on when a person registers. For example, only allow coupons to be used within the first week of a person’s registration.
Schedule coupons to run only at a specific time/date.
Restrict the use of coupons by WordPress user role.
Coupons are automatically applied when a user clicks on a URL (great for sharing on social media or in email).
The real benefit is that you can mix and match each feature. For example, you could create a buy-one-get-one-free deal that a customer can apply by clicking on the URL, and that deal would only be available to customers with a “member” user role.
Price: A limited free version is available on WordPress.org. Pricing starts at $39.50 for the Pro version.
2. Smart Coupons
Smart Coupon WooCommerce
Smart Coupons is one of the most popular coupon plugins for WooCommerce. It provides you with several different ways to enhance the way you use coupons in your store. You can.
Offer new users/first class coupons.
Restrict where coupons can be used. For example, only customers from specific countries or regions.
Schedule coupons to run only on a specific date/time.
Create shareable coupon URLs that are automatically applied upon click.
Offer flexible free shipping coupons.
Generate coupons in bulk.
Provide coupons when purchasing products. For example, when you purchase X product, you get 20% off your next purchase.
Create coupons that can be applied to free gifts. The coupon will automatically add the free gift to your cart after it is applied.
You will usually also be given more conditions for using the coupon. For example, you can limit the use of a coupon by.
Mode of transport
You can also mix and match them. For example, one voucher can provide “wholesale” customers with a “super saver” method of free delivery.
One of the most important things to note about Smart Coupons is that you can also use it to sell gift certificates. You can link gift vouchers to WooCommerce products, and customers can buy them for themselves or others.
Once people have applied the voucher “coupons” they can track their balance on the “My Account” page.
Overall, it’s just a very flexible coupon plugin. However, the downside is that there is no free version.
3. Discount Rules for WooCommerce
Discount Rules for WooCommerce is a popular plugin that allows you to create conditional discounts on your store. You can create a variety of different rules based on categories, products, user roles, purchase history, and more.
You can also create different types of deals, such as buy-one-get-one-free deals or free gifts.
In the free version of WordPress.org, these discount rules will be applied automatically (no coupons required). For example, you can create wholesale pricing rules to automatically discount bulk purchases.
However, for the premium version, you can choose to only use these discount rules with coupons.
Overall, as the name suggests, Discount Rules for WooCommerce focuses more on discounts than just coupons. However, it’s also a very flexible WooCommerce coupon plugin if you use the Pro version.
Price: WordPress.org offers a limited free version, however, you will need the Pro version to apply discounts via coupons. The Pro version starts at $49.
4. Booster for WooCommerce
Booster for WooCommerce is kind of like a Jetpack plugin…but for your WooCommerce store. That said, it’s a modular collection of over 100 different features, each of which you can activate or deactivate as needed (to keep it lightweight).
Not all of these modules handle coupons (in fact, most don’t). It does, however, help you make several different coupon adjustments/additions.
WooCommerce coupons by user role – Restrict the use of coupons for certain user roles. For example, you can only allow ‘wholesale’ customers to use coupons, not regular customers.
WooCommerce Coupon Code Generator – Automatically generate unique codes using various formulas.
WooCommerce URL Coupons – Automatically apply one of your existing coupon codes using the URL. That is, when someone visits the URL, it will automatically apply the coupon to their shopping cart (for fixed product discount coupons, you can even add products automatically). This is great for sharing coupons on social media or email ad campaigns.
Overall, if you only want to use the WooCommerce Coupons plugin, this plugin is too bloated. However, if you also find some other useful features, it may be worth trying out.
Price: a free version is available on WordPress.org, with the Pro version starting at $59.99.
OptinSpin is a unique plugin here. It doesn’t help you create more flexible coupons by itself, but rather just provides you with an engaging interface for distributing those coupons (and expanding the store’s email list).
It allows you to create a “shuttle” wheel that visitors can play with to win various discounts in exchange for entering their email address.
You can create different rewards and adjust the probability. Then, OptinSpin integrates directly with WooCommerce so that unique coupon codes are automatically generated when someone “wins”.
So it’s not a good choice if you want better control over creating deals, but it’s a good choice if you want to create an engaging way to distribute coupons and grow your email list.
6. WooCommerce Coupon Campaigns
WooCommerce Coupon Campaigns can’t help you create coupons yourself, but it can help you analyze the effectiveness of your coupons, which makes it another useful tool in your arsenal.
With this plugin, you will be able to use “campaigns” to organize coupons, just like WordPress blog post categories work together.
However, it’s worth noting that these categories are integrated with the WooCommerce reporting dashboard, so you can view the revenue and orders generated by each coupon campaign.
For example, you can create a “Black Friday Coupons” campaign that contains all of the individual Black Friday deals. You can then analyze their effectiveness in the reporting dashboard.
Since all content is based on the native coupon feature, WooCommerce Coupon Campaigns should be used with many of the above plugins (as long as they are also built on the native coupon feature).
How should I choose?
Now, you may be asking, which is the best WooCommerce coupon plugin?
Well, if you are looking for the two best all-in-one plugins, I would say you should use Advanced Coupons or Smart Coupons. both are excellent choices and will give you many options for using coupons.
Personally, I prefer Advanced Coupons for coupons only. However, Smart Coupons also allows you to sell gift certificates if you prefer that feature.On the other hand, Advanced Coupons has a limited free version on WordPress.org, which is a good option if you are on a budget.
