Every business owner runs special sales or wishes to gift loyal customers with coupons at different periods.

This is however a time consuming task if you don’t have it automated, as it is difficult to constantly do the math for each customer.

Creating discounts and coupons with the Bumpa app is easy and takes less than 2 minutes.  


Features of the Discount and Coupon Feature.


Create Discounts Based on Percentage or Fixed Amount

You can choose a certain percentage to apply for your discount. Eg 20%, 50%. The app does the mathematical deduction by itself.

You can create by amount. Eg you can set a 1000/3000 discount on a 10,000 product if you wish.


Minimum Cart Value

You can set discounts to only apply to a particular price and above. You can create a coupon code and set it that only people that buy goods worth 10,000 and above can use a coupon or get a discount. 


Discount Life Period.

You can set the date and time a discount/coupon will be active and the time it will expire. 

The discount code and coupon will not work if used before the day you set and after the expiration date you set. 

After the discount expires, the price on the products will revert to their original price automatically.


Apply Discounts on Multiple Products & Collections At Once.

You can select multiple products and collections and create one discount code or coupon to apply to all of them at once.



What’s The Difference Between Discounts and Coupons on Bumpa?

Discounts

  • When you create a discount on your Bumpa app, it reduces the price of a product on your website and it applies to everyone that orders on your website.
  • Discounts created on products will show on your website and you will see a price slash on the original price and the discounted price will be displayed on the website. 
  • The discounted price is what everyone that goes to buy from your website will buy it for, instead of the original price.

Coupons

  • Coupons are special codes that you can give your customers.
  • Only people that have the coupon code can use it. Coupons don't apply to everyone or strangers.
  • Any customer you share a coupon code with, will be able to get a discount on a product or products. 
  • A coupon will not show on the website as a slashed price. The price of the products will remain the same.
  • Coupon codes are used at the checkout point by customers and that is when the discount on the coupon will apply to them.
