“Want to increase your sales? You can now offer discounts or free shipping to your customers with coupons in your Online Shop. To get the discount, your customer only needs to type in the coupon code into the coupon field during checkout, simple and easy”.
Introducing coupons in the Online Shop
We all know it. Who doesn’t like a discount on selected items in the cart or 10% of the entire cart and of course free shipping to wrap it off? Coupons and free shipping are custom ways to attract, maintain and reward customers. And today we experience a market with broader and even more creative ways of selling than ever before so the use of coupons as part of your sales activities can play a crucial factor to increase your sales.
That’s why we are delighted to introduce two types of coupons to that you can offer to your customers:
- Percentage based coupons
- Free shipping coupons
With the percentage based coupons, you can give a percentage off the whole cart or only specific products or categories. The free shipping coupons offer your customers free shipping, for all destinations or only specific ones. You can set up minimum requirements for usage, in the form of a minimum purchase amount or a minimum number of items in the cart before your customer can use the coupon, for example, 25% off on orders over €100,-. With a usage limit, you can set the number of times a coupon can be used in total.
Reward your customers with free shipping
Free shipping is a way to satisfy your customers and letting them know you appreciate them. That way they are more likely to revisit your shop. You can also make an existing campaign even more attractive by adding free shipping in addition to the discounts.
Set an expiry date and create a state of urgency
You can choose to set an expiration date on your coupon. It can be a great motivation for your customers to use the coupon before they have forgotten all about it and for them to get what they want now and not in a week. You can also work with, let’s say, some weekend offers in a variety of ways.
