    Hi there,

    I sometimes have a situation where a person has to use a coupon, but it's rare, and I don't really want to emphasize the coupon button. The way that it is currently designed, the verbage is very bold, and it almost seems like I am announcing that they should have a coupon, when really I would like to say in small letters: "Enter your coupon code if you have one"

    Is there any way around this? If not, can this be a feature request? This could be a big problem for us because we are governed by the NYS Board of Education, and they do not want us to use coupon codes.

    Thank you very much!

    By the way, it would also be nice to be able to add some helper text to the coupon code entry area. Sometimes a company like ours would like to tell Submittors what kinds of coupon codes are available, to eliminate a diluge of inquiries. Thank you again!

    To change the header text of the coupon code here's what you need to do: 

    Then, you can add the CSS codes below to make the header look smaller.

    #coupon-header{

    font-weight: normal !important;

    font-size: 10px !important;

    }

    #id_77 br{

    display: none !important;

    }

    #coupon-table tr:nth-child(1) th, #coupon-table tr:nth-child(1){

    height: 12px !important;

    font-size: 10px !important;

    }

    #coupon-table, #coupon-table tbody{

    height: 12px !important;

    font-size: 10px !important;

    }#coupon-container{

    padding: 3px !important;

    margin-top: 0px !important;

    margin-bottom: 3px !important;

    }

    .form-product-item.hover-product-item, .form-product-item{

    margin-bottom: 0px !important;

    }

    You can add the CSS codes to your form with the help of this guide: How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    With regards to adding a placeholder text or a "Hint" text to the input text box of the coupon code, the only way that we can do that is by downloading the source code of the form and add a placeholder attribute on the input tag of the coupon code.

    How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    It would look like this once it's added.

    If you would not prefer downloading the Form's source code you can also try to add a sub-label on the input box using CSS. 

    #coupon-message:before{

    content: "Kind of coupon code" !important;

    display: block !important;

    padding-bottom: 2px !important;

    color: #D2D2D3 !important;

    }

    Note: You can change the text of the customized sub-label by changing the text inside the content property content: "Kind of coupon code" !important;

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
