Setting up nth order coupon
To generate a coupon on the customer’s nth order, navigate to the Purchase History tab of the coupon panel as shown below:
- Number of orders: Select the option ‘greater than or equal to’ and select 4 from the counter as the coupon must be redeemable for the orders greater than or equal to four.
Order Status: Select the order status as completed from the drop-down so that the coupon will be applied only to completed orders. If left blank, then the coupon will be made applicable to all the order statuses.
Total Amount: Since the coupon must be applied to the fourth order without considering any order amount, this field can be left empty.
Exclude customers already awarded: Tick this checkbox so that a customer can avail coupon only once.
