Coupons are a great business tool for offering discounts to your customers. This is a good strategy to increase your sales.
When you offer a Coupon Code and customers apply it at the Checkout Page or it’s automatically applied, the discount value (amount or percentage) of the coupon code will be deducted from the subtotal.
