    I embedded coupons in paypal wizard here:


    With those coupons :

    For 20% :         987Promo20

    For 100%:        FR34T325EE


    Once you enter the coupons I get a message that the coupon is valid but the price do not change accordingly.


    Thx in advance,

    I have tested on your form and I can see the same problem, I have also cloned your form and set up the coupon code you're using, I can see the same on my end, even when the coupon code says it is valid it does not reflect in the product's price. 

    I have tried modifying the coupon limit setting it to none, changing the discount to be applied to all the payments and even updating the discount to be applied, but nothing happens. 

    I will forward this thread to our second level for further investigation, we will let you know as soon as we get news regarding this thread.

    Hi there,

    Sorry for the late update.

    Your subscription does not have an "initial first payment" (or setup fee), and so your coupon should apply to "All Payments" instead of "First Payment" for it to work properly.

    Please kindly update your coupon.
