A Coupon is a great way to incentivize purchasing or reward loyal clients. A coupon is used at the time of creating an order and therefore creates the order at a discounted rate. A coupon can be used in Sprout Studio when:

  • Placing an order in a Gallery.

  • Filling out a Booking Proposal or Booking Page.

It's important to note that a coupon is not to be used in place of the money as a means to pay for an invoice. It is not a credit. A coupon is used as a means of lowering the price for an order at the time the order is created.

A coupon can be attached to a Lead or Shoot, which means it can only be used for Galleries or in a Booking proposal for that Lead or Shoot, or a coupon can be unattached and therefore used globally.

How to view your coupons

Go to the Dashboard > Credits & Coupons page to view all of your coupons, or go to the Lead or Shoot > Credits & Coupons page to view coupons specific to that Lead or Shoot.

How to create a new coupon

There are two ways to create a coupon:

  1. Go to the Overview > Credits & Coupons page and click the "Add New" button at the top of the page.

  2. Go to the Lead or Shoot > Credits & Coupons page and click the "Add New" button at the top of the page.

Specifying details for a coupon

When creating or editing a coupon, you'll see that you can specify the following details:

  • Coupon name - This is the name of the coupon, for your reference only.

  • Coupon code - This is the code your client will have to type in when using the coupon.

  • Type and amount - This is whether the coupon is a percentage discount, or a flat fee discount (i.e. 20% off or $50 off).

  • Usage limits - This is whether the coupon is limited to a certain number of uses or has unlimited uses.

  • Expiry date - This is the date the coupon must be used by. After this date, the coupon will not validate.

  • Attached to - This is whether the coupon is attached to a lead or shoot, or unattached and therefore available globally.

  • Description - This is simply an internal note for your reference.

You'll also notice in the coupon modal that there is a "Usage Log" tab. Here, you can see the history of a coupon once it has been used - when and how it was used.
