X-Cart allows you to create coupons for your customers. A coupon is a secret code that a customer can use to get a discount on their order - typically, a fixed amount off or a percentage off, or free shipping. It is possible to limit a coupon's use to a specific order subtotal amount, time period, product category, product class, user membership level, or user address zone. If necessary, it is also possible to set the number of times a coupon can be used.
The coupons feature in X-Cart 5 is enabled by the add-on Coupons. This add-on enables you to create coupons that give customers a fixed amount off or a percentage off the order subtotal.
In addition to that, there is also the add-on Free Shipping and Shipping Freight which can be used in conjunction with the add-on Coupons. By running your store with both these add-ons enabled at the same time you get the ability to create coupons for free shipping.
For convenience, we recommend using the add-on Bulk Editing to help you with the management of coupon assignments to products.
