Store Credit coupons ↑ Back to top

To create a Store Credit coupon:

  1. Go to: WooCommerce > Coupons > Add Coupon.

  2. Select Store Credit in the dropdown next to Discount Type.

The remainder of functions are managed similarly to other coupon types. More info at: Coupon Management.

3. Publish.

Store Credit coupons can be used for multiple purchases until the credit is reduced to 0. For example, a $50 store credit voucher used at Checkout for a $30 purchase will allow for a future purchase of $20 or until the total value expires or is exhausted. Customers can even buy products worth more than the remaining store credit and just pay the difference at checkout.

Keep in mind that one Store Credit coupon can’t be shared among 2 different customers. Each of them needs to have their own unique Store Credit coupon code.
