Creating a discount coupon for your courses

  1. Login to your Knorish dashboard > Select Transactions and Coupons > Select +Course Coupon option
  2. Type in the Coupon code (alphabets, numbers, or alphanumeric combination)
  3. Specify the Number of use allowed
  4. Select  Discount type from the drop-down menu as Percent or Price
  5. Select Coupon Currency from the drop-down menu as  INR or USD { for Price }
  6. Enter  Amount or Percent of Discount
  7. Specify  Valid from date till Valid to date
  8. Select All courses or Single or multiple courses>Select from the drop-down under Coupon for Course 
  9. Click on Create to make the coupon active

      Important Considerations


      Selecting price based discount will work only for a single course. Percentage based discount coupons will work for all courses or the multiple selected courses.

      When a course price is changed after a coupon is created, coupons with discount type as 'Price'  are deactivated and will no longer function. Coupons with discount type 'Percent' will not have any impact and will continue to function after a price change.
      • Discount Amount should not exceed INR 500,000 or 5000 USD

      • Can I create coupon codes for 4 out of the 5 courses in my dashboard?: No, a coupon can be created either for one course or all courses. 

      This way you are done creating discount coupons for courses. Now, we’ll show you how to create a course category discount coupon. Most of the steps will remain the same except that you can create and apply the percent discount for the course categories defined.

      2. Type in the Coupon code (alphabets, numbers or alpha-numeric combination)
      3. Specify the Number of use allowed

      9. Define the payment type for the coupon: {One-time payment, Subscription daily, Subscriptions weekly, Subscription monthly/EMI, Subscription yearly}
      10. Click on Create to make the coupon live

      Note:

      • Selecting price based discount will work only for one bundle at one time. While selecting a percent-based discount will work for all bundles or the multiple selected bundles.
      • Once a discount coupon is applied in Purchase and Renewal, the same gets applied on all auto charges until the subscription ends or expires.

      With this, the course discount coupons or the category discount coupons or bundle coupons with a price or percentage or just the percentage would be created and will be live instantly. You would also see the coupon listed at the top of the page as a new entry. You can now start sharing this coupon with your target audience, customers, and leads.

      Important Considerations 

      • When a course price is changed after a coupon is created, coupons with discount type as 'Price'  are deactivated and will no longer function. Coupons with discount type 'Percent' will not have any impact and will continue to function after a price change.
      • Course Coupon discounts can be based on either price or percentage.
      • Category Coupons can be based only on percentage.
      • Paid courses can’t be priced any less than $1 or ₹1 else the transaction will fail. You must not discount courses below that amount. This won’t affect your ability to create 100% off coupons.
      • The discount amount should not exceed INR 500000 and 5000 USD.
      • A coupon's allowed use count could increase by 1 or 2 when multiple users are using the coupon at the same time. This is because it may take time for the gateway to process a payment and confirm completion, during which another payment could have been completed using the same coupon by another user.
