Last updated on August 3, 2023

Utilizing discounts and coupons can significantly increase sales and customer loyalty for your e-commerce store. While the first order discount helps to convert casual visitors to become paying customers, the Nth order discount can encourage returning customers to make repeat purchases by providing a discount on their Nth order. These strategies can lead to an overall increase in conversions and customer retention. In this article, we will outline the process for utilizing the Smart Coupons for WooCommerce plugin by WebToffee to create discounts for the first order, with an accompanying practical example.

  3. Configure coupon data as per requirements.
  4. On the Purchase History tab, choose the order threshold you want to give the discount.
  5. Set up Nth order coupon restrictions.
  6. Publish coupon.
