Let’s make the newsstand more attractive with sharing Coupons and Vouchers

There are two options for promoting magazines, subscriptions or bundles. The first option is the Voucher, and the other option is the Coupon. Use vouchers when you want to give someone something for free. Use coupons when you want to provide a discount.

 

Create a Voucher in the Promotion tab

When you want to give someone something for free vouchers are a way to go. The customer needs to enter the voucher code to get the item(s) you defined in the voucher administration. There are two voucher entry points for the end customer: one is in the user registration form, and the other is in my account area.
