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


  1. After activating WPtouch plug in the posts that has JC powered coupons (Style 1) are giving so lengthy posts while middle or the bottom part of the post is blank when browsing from mobile/smart phones . Any solution for this?

  2. Hillary says:

    Hi Jas,

    My jccoupon reveal Pro plugin is up to date with Version 5.0.1, but it is still generating phantom Pages for Coupon Details, Coupon on Page Load and Coupon Print. Is there anything to be done?

  3. Hi,
    I use your pro version. The coupons work fine, but I often find I have mysterious new WP Pages entitled Coupon Print or Coupon Details or Coupon On Page Load. How and why do they get automatically created? I trash them, but they eventually return.

  4. Hi Jaspreet. your plug in is just awesome for me till now and i would definitely buy pro version after sometime. but i have a problem with it. can you please tell me that whatever i write into the description it appears in white color which is not comfortable to read for customers. so is there a way to change the color of description? thats important for me. please email me the solution ASAP.

    • If you are planning to go for PRO then why wait man! Go pro. By the way the white text could be a another style interfering with coupon plugins CSS, its hard to say without looking at it. With PRO you get full email support for 1 full year.

    Week ago I have asked for your permission to translate your JC Coupon plugin and I didn’t hear any from you since. I hope that you will find time to provide the reply, because we believe that the translation would be of a great use.

    All the best,

    • Hi Maria,
      Sorry for not getting back to you on your previous contact. Thing is that there is no POT file available for this plugin. If you want to make an effort and send your translated version on to me that would be great.

  6. Is the plugin compatible with WPML?
    Thank you,

  7. Thank you for the great and nice and best plugin and great support .

    Best wishes

  8. Hi, does your software keep tracks the # of times the coupons are clicked, viewed or printed by the user? I need to know if users are actually using the coupons. Thanks

  9. Hi JC,

    Whoo hoo! I upgraded and it worked! Thank you for great support!

    Now I’m going to test it out this weekend on my other websites. If all goes smoothly, I’m ready to buy a multi-site license of Pro 🙂 I’ll be back in touch.

  10. There is a bug in this plug in. If I put a date for the expiry date and created the coupon it is shown a number in the Expiry field in “manage coupons” section’s table instead of the expiry date. If I use a custom text it will be shown properly there.

    If you know how to resolve this by editing the plugin let me know. As I know the code
    in jaspreetchahals-coupons-lite/jcorgcrjax.php belongs to this. I guess I need to modify this. But don’t know what to replace with. 😀

  11. Hi,
    I have been using the lite version of the plugin for a while and I must says its great. I wanted to ask about making the coupons responsive. Is this possible, how to go about?



    • Any way to make the coupons responsive or might this be in a future update?. I’m looking to go for the Pro License.


      • Hi Jamie,
        existing styles will stay as it. I was thinking of adding a new responsive style. But nothing is final yet. still looking for how the new style should look. if you have any ideas, let me know.

  12. I just downloaded your plugin for my new site. So far everything looks terrific! I do have a question though about the destination urls you input for the coupon. Is there a way to make these links no follow? I know the pro version has “masked urls,” but I’m really just looking to no follow the links. That’s the only change I really need to make to the coupons. Is there something I could input in the code to make no follow links? Any insight would be much appreciated!

    • Hi Tiffany,

      Links in PRO version by default are no-follow. I would say support me and buy PRO version 🙂


      • Hello,

        I just tried purchasing the pro version ( the $65 one). Whenever I get to the check out page, I get the message “Sorry, your session has expired. Return to homepage” at the very bottom of the page. I tried this on numerous computers and on Safari, Firefox, and Chrome. It looks like the full page loads for a second (with the pay via paypal near the bottom), but then it disappears and I get that message. So there’s no way of me actually purchasing the pro version. Is there a way around this? Thanks.

        • Hi Tiffany,

          I think latest wp update killed some database table definition. I did a repair and it seems to work ok now.

          Can you please try again and let me know if that worked for you?


  13. Hello again!

    I have reinstalled JC coupon lite and was thrilled to find that a shortcode was created. All was working just great until I did a test. The coupon code does not copy to the clipboard. I tried both the hidden code and visible code version. If only this would work I’d be happy to upgrade to the pro version. I am using wordpress 3.6. and have not upgraded as yet to 3.6.1. Please help!
    Much thanks,

  14. Hi,
    Can the coupon be serialized with a number or code to prevent multiple uses or print outs?

  15. Hi,

    I am testing the free version of your plugin and the directions seem easy, but when I create a coupon nothing happens. I see a “working” bar so I imaging my coupon is being created, but I cannot find it. I must be missing something quite simple. Thanks!

    • There are no specific reason why that would happen. Plugin is tested with multiple themes and multiple plugins. It is hard to comment without knowing how your wp is setup

  16. I am currently using the free version of this plugin and once I updated the wordpress version to wordpress 3.6 and after changing the theme to twentythirteen, seems this plug in not working properly.
    I mean even I hide the coupon code half of the coupon code already shown before click on the coupon and the white color font of “SHOW COUPON” or “ACTIVATE OFFER” changed to red which is not good.
    It seems there are some CSS changes to do to work the plugin properly with the twentythirteen theme.
    Can you please check this and fix it and release a newer version ASAP?

    • I am working on an update to PRO version atm. I will check 2013 compatibility with LITE in good time.

      • I have few more suggestions to do in next JC Coupon Lite edition update

        1. Allow to make coupon codes which have more than 12 characters
        2. Add an option called “None” in the “pick expiry date” field which will make us easy to create non expiring coupons
        3. Search option to search coupons by coupon name

        Then I can surely say that this is will be the best free WordPress coupon plugin IMO.

  17. Kathie Zaccaria says:

    I am considering purchasing the Pro version but have some questions.
    1.) I see that you have a print style format, but was wondering if any of the others style are print capable. 2.) Can an image, such as a logo, but uploaded onto a coupon? 3.) Can the dimensions of all coupons styles be changed to accommodate additional text?

    Thank you!

    • Hello,
      1. Print style format is the one that is linked from other styles. So other styles are not as such printable. unless user wants to print the page itself.
      2. logos can be uploaded to a coupon but only for style 7.
      3. dimensions are pretty much fixed other than style 1 and 5 (which as I said can be modified)

      If you have any other question please let me know by sending a Blog contact (

  18. George S. says:

    I am adding coupons to our existing discount dining site. These would be similar to Groupon purchases so I would want the coupon to be serialized with a number or code to prevent multiple uses or print outs. Can your plugin accommodate this?

  19. Evan Caulfield says:

    How can we change he dimensions of the coupon , we need 250X250

  20. Jimmy Brown says:

    Does the Pro Version offer a shortcode to display coupon codes from a category?

    I have a retailer with 30 or so coupons. I would like to display it all on one page sorted by a certain criteria.

    Is there a future in the pipeline that allows users to submit coupons?

    • Hi Jimmy,
      You can display all coupons under a given category on a single page. there is definitely a shortcode for that and a widget is there to help you out on create post page.
      I never thought about user submissions because that itself will require its own theme and all, just creating coupons and displaying them may not be enough with user submissions.
      If you have any ideas please let me know but I want to keep this plugin simple and easy to use and cannot guarantee that I will implement it, but if the requirements are clear and other can benefit from it then who knows.
      let me know if you have any other question.
