In another tutorial, we learned how to create promotions and coupons. But what if you wanted to massively create multiple different coupons that could be allocated separately to your potential customers? Bulk Coupons is your answer!
The procedure for creating Bulk Coupons is almost like creating promotions and coupons.
1Click on "Marketing'' - "Promotions(Coupons)" under Marketing Tools in the admin menu.
2Click on the "Create course/bundle promotion" button.
3Give an easy-to-remember name to your promotion.
4Choose the type of your promotion (% or fixed $ amount) and fill in the value.
5Select the courses for which the promotion will apply by clicking on the ''Select a product'' button and choosing from the drop-down menu which will appear. Then click the ''Add product'' button to add your selected product
6Now no separate coupons will be generated but instead, we will create all at once multiple and different ones! Scroll down to the "Bulk Coupons" section.
7In this section you need to:
- add a prefix for your bulk coupon
- set the maximum number of times this bulk coupon can be used
- set an expiration date for the bulk coupon
8Then click the "Generate bulk coupon".
9Now you can see the generated bulk coupon, which you can delete at any time by clicking the bin button.
After you are done with generating the bulk coupon simply click on the "save" button. It is very important to click the second save button since this is the only step that finalizes the bulk coupon and stores it to your promotions list!! Otherwise, your bulk coupon will be discarded and you will have to start the process from scratch.
10Here it is, your first Bulk Coupon!
11From this screen you can edit your bulk coupons by clicking the "edit" button or delete any of them by clicking on the "delete" button.
But what do the three colored tabs mean:
Green: The times that the particular promotion coupon has been used so far.
Blue: The overall amount of coupons created.
Red: The expiration date of the promotion coupon.
If you want to check which coupons have precisely been redeemed, you simply have to click on the "edit" tab. There you can find under the "Create Bulk Coupons" tab a new excel icon in your previously created bulk coupon.
Download it by clicking on it and open the file to see which coupon codes have been redeemed so far. (Note: Coupon codes are case sensitive so make sure your learners copy the code exactly as it is)
If you are wondering how your potential learners can use a coupon upon enrollment then wonder no more cause here is what they should do:
a) First they will need to find the corresponding course to the coupon and click "Enroll"
b) After that, they should be able to type the coupon code in the field and click on "Redeem" to get their discount.
c) Finally they will be able to see the precise discount they are getting along with the final price of the course. All that's left to do is click on the "Buy" button!
Now that a coupon was redeemed let's check the excel file as we showed above.
As we can see the coupon with code Travel001-XHEQUH ( the one we redeemed one step above) was used.
