Administration area / Passive extensions / Coupons
The coupon extension is very similar to the discount extension, with the difference that only clients that possess a voucher or code will get the price deduction. For every coupon you can set a code and a number of available items. The software is in BETA and some feature aren't available at the moment or may be subject to change.
Once you have created a coupon extension, you can customize it in the configuration section. Main settings incorporate three tabs: ‘applied to’ that can be used to link the coupon to one or more calendars, ‘actions’ which can be used to delete or duplicate it and ‘main data’ which contains the following:
