How to Add Coupon Code to Payment Forms

How to Add Coupon Code to Payment Forms

JotForm Payment forms are now capable of using COUPON CODES as another payment option. This guide will show you how to add the Coupon Code in addition to the other options that are already available in the Payment Form described on this guide on How to Add Options to Payment Forms.

Start by adding your selected payment gateway from the Payment Fields.

1. Assuming that your products were already configured, click the PAYMENT FIELD to highlight it then click the WAND icon.

2. Go to the COUPONS tab and click the CREATE COUPON button.

3. In the coupon wizard, add the coupon details such as the COUPON CODE, COUPON LIMIT, DISCOUNT TYPE, DISCOUNT RATE, and so on.

Below is a short description of each:

A. COUPON CODE: The code or name of the coupon.

B. COUPON LIMIT: Set to none by default. You can set the limit BY EXPIRATION DATE or BY NUMBER OF USES. If you will set an expiration date, the coupon will be automatically expired after the selected date. For the number of uses, the coupon will be automatically void as soon as the limit is reached.

C. DISCOUNT TYPE: There are two discount types available:

🔘 PERCENTAGE - Discount s based on a percentage of the amount.

🔘 FIXED AMOUNT  - Discount is based on a fixed amount.

D. DISCOUNT RATE: The percent or amount of discount to apply. This is either in percent value or amount value, depending on the DISCOUNT TYPE selected.

E. APPLY DISCOUNT TO: Decide where you want to apply the discount.

🔘 PRODUCT - Apply the discount to all or selected products only.

🔘 SHIPPING - Apply the discount to the shipping rate instead of the total.

🔘 TOTAL - Apply the discount to the total amount for payment.

F.1. DISCOUNTED PRODUCTS: If APPLY DISCOUNT TO is set to PRODUCT then you will be presented with options to select which products will be discounted.

F.2. MINIMUM ORDER AMOUNT FOR DISCOUNT: If APPLY DISCOUNT TO is set to SHIPPING or TOTAL then you will be presented with an option to enter the minimum order amount for a discount.

G. EDIT GLOBAL COUPON TEXT: This is optional if you wanted to change the texts used for warnings and description.

4. Scroll down, and don't forget to click the SAVE button.

5. Close the wizard once you're done. If you need to add more coupons, simply click the CREATE COUPON button again.

Do you want to see an example? Here's a demo form https://www.jotform.com/70825264725964.


In addition, to delete or duplicate a coupon code, re-open the payment wizard and go back to the COUPONS tab again.

🔘 Hover your mouse over an existing coupon.

🔘 Click the GEAR icon.

🔘 Then choose DELETE or DUPLICATE accordingly.

    how can I be paid
    at coupon people

  • MeloBakesNZ

    I offer a range of baked goods in $3 bags. I want to offer 2 bags for $5, but if I discount 16.67%, it also discounts any extra bags as well. So if someone buys 3, it shows the price as $7.50, whereas I dont want to offer that extra 50c off the 3rd bag. Is there a way to do this?

  • ThermomixBenelux

    Is there a way to edit several coupon codes at once? I need to change the type and the amount. Is this possible?

  • beyondfortunetelling

    the number of uses is per user or in general? Like, i don't want a user to use the same coupon 50 times so should I choose 1 use? Or is it like, 50 coupons to be used once per user? Thanks!

  • ichef

    I would like to remove the 'enter coupon/apply' field from the Stripe payment form, whilst using Plans from my stripe account. Is this possible?

  • johannawise

    I would like my coupons to NOT be case specific, that is, I don't care if the user enters the coupon all caps, all lowercase, or first letter cap. How do I ensure that case doesn't matter?

  • Kennnetta Wells

    I would.like to work and get paid

  • olovesz

    How do I add a coupon for a payment setting of User Defined amount?

    Also, how do I integrate a automatic late fee after a certain date?

  • drazek

    echo that .. no coupon tab in new forms

    is there a workaround, ETA or resolution?

  • EricMac

    My payment wizard looks completely different and there is no coupon tab. Is this something different in 4.0? Were the coupons moved elsewhere?

  • UFHealthOOD

    I would like to add a minimum purchase amount a customer has to make before they are able to use the coupon code. I would like the total before tax to have to be $30 before they can use the coupon.

  • Abhilash12

  • grade4pagasa

    you forgot to indicate what the "working" coupon code is when you said:

    Do you want to see an example? Here's a demo form http://www.jotform.co/form/31665516771863.

    we need to enter the code to see how it works.

    thanks.

  • jeannablossombirthorg

  • roliveri

    I'm unable to apply my coupon to the "Order Total". The only options I get are "Products" and "Shipping".

    Please HELP!

  • blueforms

    btw.. I have entered multiple coupons, I need the user to enter at least one for the form to be submitted.

  • blueforms

    Is there anyway to make the coupon itself required? It shouldn't let you submit the form unless the coupon field has been filed out and validated as valid. Please let me know.

  • Bronzegemini

    I am offering a $5.00 off shipping coupon, which reflects on the form but once we go to PayPal, PayPal doesn't honor the shipping discount.

  • crazy

    Wow it is great coupon code plugin. and you explain the process how to use this one thanks. you can find more coupons :online coupon codes.

  • WagtheDog

    I have a coupon code that allows for clients to get a free product, but it still asks for credit card info even when the payment balance is $0. What can I do to adjust this? I could make the field not required, but then that would allow those without the coupon to purchase/register without paying which is not what I want.

  • adventuresineng

    We very much need to build logic into the coupon/discounting portion of the paypal payment widget. We would like to offer an option where if total exceeds x.xx or number of items selected exceeds x then a discount is applied. Can you help us?

  • andy_h

    I have a paypal subscription that I need to offer a coupon code for.

    Adding a coupon code does not appear to be an option for a subscription product please help!!!

  • zifboxbiz

    Is there a way to make the quantity option a simple 'fillout' field (like the sample http://www.jotform.co/form/31665516771863)instead of the drop-down menu?

  • jackgtm

    how can I add coupon code to the form with single product, multiple option and users have to select one option i.e. the paypal payment form with radio buttons on it?

  • mdl5046

    I would like to allow customers to add multiple coupons.

  • kcartwright

    I have a coupon code set up but I am connected through STRIPE. The coupon option was there for me so I made one, but it is NOT working. So, should that option not show for me since I use STRIPE or is there a way to integrate it with STRIPE?

  • tofecjamal

    NOT WORKINIG. After I add the "Coupon Code", I can't get back to the "Main" payment Wizard page to "Continue" to Finish, your Steps 8 & 9 above.

    When I select "Return To Main" link, it takes me back to +Coupons window (the graphic under your Step 2 above) EXCEPT there are NO "Back" or "Next" buttons, just the small "X" close window button in the upper right hand corner of the window.

    In other words, after I enter all the information for my Coupon Code, I can't get to the "Finish" in the Payment Wizard.

    This is really, really frustrating. One of the big reasons I upgraded to paid subscription is for this function. Now, no way for me to get any support other than post questions.
