Welcome to this comprehensive tutorial on utilizing the Credit Coupons feature in the FastCredit Pro plugin. This newly introduced capability allows you to apply coupons during the checkout process, effectively reducing the final amount payable in credits. Let’s dive right in!
Create Credit Based Coupons
FastCredit Pro also allows you to credit based coupons. Navigate to the coupon section on your site’s admin panel and add a new coupon. While setting it up, you can choose “Credit Award,” which defines the number of credits this coupon will offer during checkout. You can also set expiry dates, usage limits, and other restrictions as you would with any other coupon.
Part 1: Basic Application of Coupons
To start, we’ll be walking you through a simple example to show how to apply a coupon at the checkout and the impact it has on your credit balance.
Step 1: Add a product to your cart. For this example, let’s assume the product costs 20 credits and you have a credit balance of 120.
Step 2: Proceed to the checkout. Here, you will see that checking out will reduce your credit balance from 120 to 100.
Step 3: Apply a coupon. In the coupon field, enter the coupon code (e.g.,
credit10), which will reduce the total amount payable by 10 credits.
Step 4: Place your order. After applying the coupon, you only need to pay 10 credits, leaving your credit balance at 110.
Part 2: Insufficient Credits and Coupon Application
Now, let’s take this a step further. What happens if you don’t have enough credits for a purchase?
Step 1: Add a product to your cart that costs more credits than you have available. For instance, if you have 110 credits, add a product that costs 111 credits.
Step 2: Proceed to checkout. The system will alert you that you have insufficient credits.
Step 3: Apply a high-value coupon. Use a coupon code like
credit50 to reduce the final amount payable. This will make the new total 61 credits.
Step 4: Complete the checkout. With the coupon applied, you will now have enough credits to make the purchase.
Part 3: Advanced Usage and Coupon Restrictions
In this part, we’ll delve into more advanced scenarios, such as applying coupons higher than the cart total and the limitations tied to coupon usage.
Step 1: Add multiple products to your cart, making sure the total cost exceeds your current credit balance.
Step 2: Apply a high-value coupon like
credit50. This will reduce your cart balance to within the available credits.
Step 3: Add or remove items as needed. Remember, you can only spend up to the coupon’s value in that session. Extra credits from the coupon will not be added to your account balance.
Step 4: Complete the checkout. Make sure the final cart balance aligns with your available credits and coupon value.

They not only offer a way to incentivize purchases but also provide customers the convenience to optimize their credit spending.
