We know that the inbuilt coupon setup in WooCommerce doesn’t have provision to bulk generate coupons. Therefore, we will need to have a coupon extension to provide this functionality. WebToffee’s Smart coupon for WooCommerce can efficiently generate coupons in bulk for your store very easily.
The plugin generates coupons and add it to your store, share to customers directly by mail or simply export into a CSV for a later import. All the coupons generated in bulk have similar properties which are configured from the coupon panel with unique coupon code.
That is, there are three methodologies by which the coupons can be generated:
- Directly add generated coupons into the store.
- Export the generated coupon in a CSV file.
- Email the coupons to specified email addresses.
Checkout the tutorial to know how coupons can be generated in bulk using the coupon extension.
