Introduction:

Offering different discounts on different categories using the same coupon code means that you can provide unique discount percentages for specific product categories within your online store using Discount Rules for Woocommerce plugin.

For example, you can set a 10% discount for accessories, a 25% discount for soaps, and a 15% discount for utensils, all using the same coupon code.

The purpose is to provide targeted promotions for specific categories and simplify the usage of coupons for customers across different categories.

Example Scenarios for offering different discounts using the same coupon code across different categories:

Coupon code "SUMMER"

  • 15% discount on Category "Sunscreen"

  • $10 Fixed Discount on Category "Shoes"

  • 10% discount on Category “Jeans”

For the above example using the same coupon code "SUMMER," we can create different discount rules for three categories: 15% off on Sunscreen, $10 off on Shoes, and 10% off on Jeans. Customers can apply the "SUMMER" code during checkout/ cart to enjoy the discounts on eligible products within these categories.

To create rules with Coupon code conditions, you need to have the Discount Rules PRO plugin installed and activated. Purchase the PRO version by clicking on the button below.

Now, let's explore the above examples in detail.

Example 1: 15% discount on Category "Sunscreen" using the coupon code “SUMMER”
