In what order are multiple coupons applied?

When you enable Multiple Coupons Per Account, you need to decide in what order you would like us to apply percentage discounts and fixed amount discounts in the event both discount types are eligible for a single line item on an invoice.

 

Apply Percentage First

"Apply percentage first" will apply all percentage discounts to the line item amount first, in order of oldest redeemed on the account to most recently redeemed on the account.

  • After all percentage discounts are applied, if there is a remaining amount on the line item, fixed amount discounts will be applied in order of oldest redeemed on the account to most recently redeemed on the account.
  • Once the line item is fully discounted, we will no longer apply coupon discounts, so an eligible coupon may not end up being used on the invoice in the event other coupons achieved a 100% discount first.
  • This option favors the customer, returning a larger discount.
 

Apply Fixed Amount First

"Apply fixed amount first" will apply all fixed amount discounts to the line item amount first, in order of oldest redeemed on the account to most recently redeemed on the account.

  • After all fixed amount discounts are applied, if there is a remaining amount on the line item, percentage discounts will be applied in order of oldest redeemed on the account to most recently redeemed on the account.
  • Once the line item is fully discounted, we will no longer apply coupon discounts, so an eligible coupon may not end up being used on the invoice in the event other coupons achieved a 100% discount first.
  • This option favors the merchant, returning a smaller discount.
 

Example

Coupon A is 10% off and Coupon B is $20.00 off. Line item purchase if $50.00.

  • Apply percentage first would result in a ($5.00) discount from Coupon A and a ($20.00) discount from Coupon B, for a total discount on the line item of ($25.00). The purchase subtotal would be $25.00.
  • Apply fixed amount first would result in a ($20.00) discount from Coupon B and a ($3.00) discount from Coupon A, for a total discount on the line item of ($23.00). The purchase subtotal would be $27.00.
