Coupons can be used to discount the price of a form by a fixed amount or by a percentage. We also support Stripe’s coupons for Stripe subscriptions.
Coupons are available on all plans, and can:
- Be enabled or disabled at any time
- Have an expiry date
- Apply to selected payment fields on a form
- Be pre-filled
- Be as many as you like per form!
- To get started with coupons, go Configure > Payments
- Toggle on “Coupons”
- Click the button “Add Coupon” to add a new coupon.
- The coupon can then be edited directly in the table, just fill in those details. You can even apply both a price and a percentage to the same coupon code if you like.
Once coupons have been toggled on, there will be a new question at the end of your live form called “Coupon”, a space for the customer to enter the coupon code, and an “APPLY COUPON” button:
When the customer enters and applies the coupon, they’ll be shown the discount that’s been applied as well as the total amount with the discount. This will be displayed in accordance with your total price settings. If you have total price set to being shown at the end of your form for example, it will look like this:
Discount a Stripe Subscription
Note that a Stripe payment source must be selected under Configure > Payments before you configure Stripe Coupons.
- If you have not already done so, go to your Stripe Dashboard and create the coupons you would like to use. Note that the coupon ID is what is used to apply the coupon, so we recommend setting the ID to the same thing as the label when creating the coupon in Stripe.
- Add a new coupon as per above.
- Enter the code for the coupon as it appears on Stripe.
- Change the “Coupon Type” to “Stripe” by clicking on it.
Changing the wording “Coupon” on a form
You can customize the UI / wording of “Coupon” and “APPLY COUPONS” on your form in Translations.
Selecting which payment field is discountable
You can select which payment fields discounts apply to on a form. To include or exclude payments in the discount coupon, go to Configure to the right of your payment field in the editor, and then turn the “is discountable” toggle on or off. Don’t forget to save!
Coupons can be pre-filled like any other question, using the pre-fill key “coupon”. See the help article on prefilling for more information about pre-filling in general.
Gotchas: Coupons with custom pricing rules
Coupons and calculations get along well, however there is one gotcha to watch out for. When using a coupon that discounts by a percentage, the percentage is applied before the calculation is applied. This is because discounts can be included or excluded on products and price fields, so the percentage needs to be removed before the rules of the calculation go and change everything.
