The URL coupon is the unique way for redirecting your user to the cart /checkout page with coupon applied along with it. It is obvious that with the URL coupon in place, there isn’t a need for you to have a coupon code entry field at the checkout/cart. And therefore, you will not need to have a coupon code field at the checkout/cart to create ambiguity for the users.
It is also said that removing or hiding the coupon code fields at the checkout/cart can result in increasing conversion rate rather than making users to go in search for the code unnecessarily.
So let’s have a look into how this is achieved in the plugin URL coupon for WooCommerce.
Ensure that the the plugin is installed and activated in your site. Navigate to WooCommerce > Settings. You can see the Hide coupon code field option in the general tab as shown in the image below:
Hide coupon code field consists of two options:
- Hide in cart page: Removes the coupon code entry field from the cart page.
- Hide in checkout page: Removes the coupon code entry field from the checkout page.
Since the coupon code entry field is hidden, the cart page or checkout page will not show any coupon code entry field for users which are redirected by using URL coupon.
Sample cart page without a coupon code entry field is as shown below:
