WCFM also allows the vendors to configure coupon for their store. In addition to the global coupons which are declared by the admin, the vendors can specifically create coupons for their store if the capability is given ( as shown above).
Similar to Admin, the vendors can add their coupon from here: Goto WCFM Vendor Dashboard-> Coupons-> Add new ( as shown in the screenshot below)
In the same manner, for editing the present coupons, you can click on the existing coupon ( from the list) or click on the edit option under “Action” column.
Clicking on Add/edit option will redirect you to Edit/Add coupon page as shown below:
Similar to Admin settings, let’s discuss the feasibility provided to the vendors for Coupons by WCFM.
General Settings:These include the basic settings provided to the vendor for configuring coupons for their stores, here’s a screenshot of the options available along with brief description of each:
a. Code: Vendors can provide the name of the coupon for their store.
b. Description: Vendors can enter the description of the coupon here.
c. Discount Type: Vendors can select the type of discount from the drop-down option provided here. Note that unlike admin, vendors have 2 discount types options which can be declared for their store, namely- percentage discount and fixed product discount.
d. Coupon amount: Here, vendors can apply the value of the coupon which is to be declared.
e. Coupon Expiry date: Vendors can set expiry date of the coupon from here.
f. Allow free shipping: Check this option if the coupon grants free shipping, ensure that “Free shipping method” must be enabled and configured as required.
g. Show on store: Checking this option will allow the vendors to display the coupon in their store page. It has to be ensured that the vendor store coupon widget is set properly in the sidebar as discussed in admin section.
Restriction settings: Similar to admin, these settings will allow the vendors to configure rules for the published coupons for their store. Here’s a screenshot of the section and the details of the options provided.

Note that the amount = Cart total +tax
