Free wordpress coupon plugin, 4.7 out of 5 based on 3 ratings


  1. Hello, I’m using the free version of this plugin on my website: However, the coupon doesn’t display on Mobile.
    Also the PC version does not display quite well “show coupon” as well.
    Please support me!

  2. Leon Peeters says:

    Hi im looking for a coupon thats displays based on tags.
    For example.
    For post samsung phone 1 display only all discounts thats relevant for samsung phone 1
    Post about samsung phone2 display all relevant discounts for this this phone.

    So the discount shortcode displays on match tag for discount and post/page

    Is this possitble with your plugin?

    • You are able to create categories and file your coupons under it, use the category shortcode in your posts where you would like to display your coupons

      There is no automatic context matching, categories will do the trick


  3. Hello, can you please help me out.
    As while adding a coupon code, when we select “Pick Expiry date” it shows the data in dd/mm/yy format.
    I want the date should be in mm/dd/yy format.
    When i applied change in “jQuery(“#jcorgcr_date_field”).datepicker({dateFormat:’dd/mm/yy’})” this code, but it doesn’t allow me to save the coupon and ask to change line no 85 which is “”.(($coupon->expiry_type==”Date”)?date(“m/d/Y”,$coupon->expiry):$coupon->expiry).””
    To change the date in required format, could you please trace out the places where i need to do amendments

  4. Hi, thank you for sharing your work. I have a little issue, when clicked the code doesn’t seem to be copied in the user’s clipboard. Any idea ?

  5. Hey JC,

    Really like the coupon-lite plugin but when I go to pages and posts, the JC Coupon widget does not appear. I am using a siterubrix website that runs on wordpress 3.9.1. When I purchase my domain, will this resolve the problem? Thanks
