Jaspreet, Thank you so much! I found so many options that has so many features and functions that I just didn’t need. I really was looking hard for a simple, easy to use coupon plugin that would just put the coupons I needed into posts and allow me to edit/change them without editing each post. This has really made sharing coupons with my readers a lot easier! And, your customer service is outstanding. Thank you for getting back with me so quickly on each and every one of my questions, even when I had a ton at the very beginning!

Thank you so much for your help Jas! I really appreciate your support and your plugin is simply incredible!

Important, Please read

Cost of this Plugin starts from $99.00 (NON REFUNDABLE). There are other options available. Be sure to check out the Pricing section (Scroll down). I think the cost is reasonable and it helps me pay my bills. But you can always contact me for a Discount Voucher, only if you think this plugin is worth less. No refund could be issued because of accidental purchase or change of mind and if you haven’t tried the lite version. If lite version does not work for you then PRO may not either. Please try it out before you buy this version.

I can fill this page with many testimonials but that’s not the intention. Intention is that You, my friend return from my blog happy.

Tip on Search engines

If you would like search engines not to index plugin’s print page please use robots.txt file in your website root to exclude the print page. Just try cliking on the print icon and see if what URL is posted back to you and put that link structure in your robots.txt file.

Depending on the permalink structure this is one example to do that (read more about robots.txt optimization on wordpress website here)

  1. Hi,

    A few questions if I may.

    Are the codes clickable on a mobile phone and tablet?
    Does this work with Affiliate Window, Webgains and most UK networks?
    With datafeed CSV import, do I require an inbetween software to augment the layout and fields?
    When using shortcodes and reimporting, do they stay the same?
    When updating, the shortcodes update automatically on individual pages?
    Can I add codes manually to the database to show in pages without adding a new shortcode?

    Thanks
    Lee

    • With imports, different channels have kinda different feed definitions. You have to create your own CSV files to import, those are compatible with this plugin as described on this page. There is no auto import function for different coupon feed providers. I hope this helps.

    Please could you direct me to a demo using the plugin or a site using the pro version.
    Thanks

  3. Hi, I am currently using the lite version which is great. I wanted to upgrade and put it on a couple of sites I own but the price for the unlimited version seems a little high. Your single version software is on sale for 20% off. Would you consider putting your unlimited version on sale for 20% for a little while?

  4. Thanks for creating such awesome plugin, really loved it.

  5. This plugin import data from a XML file?

  6. Hi, Jaspreet. Could you please make it so coupons are displayed in alphabetical order by title when a short code is used?

  7. Hi, can the plugin and the voucher codes be fully translated into another language?

    Thanks,
    Beat

  8. Hi!

    I would happily buy this plug-in if it would have rel=”nofollow” for the URLs. Could you please add that functionality?

    Thank you!

  9. Hi!

    Does the style 3 buttons has the reveal feature like style 1?

    Thanks!

    Hi Jaspreet, I like your plugin and you have done a wonderful job there, specially I like the short coupon styles. Just came to this site to check the pro price to use for my number of coupon sites.
    But $149 seems too high for me. Is there any option to reduce the price or get a coupon on $149? :)

  11. This is an extremely flexible, well maintained coupon plugin that is backed by exemplary customer support. Plugin could not be easier to use and will surly fulfill your needs.

    I would highly recommend if you are looking to run any sort of coupon based promotions.

    Hello,
    It looks like you have one of the best coupon generators out there. :) I am considering purchasing the Pro version. I am mostly interested in print coupons and I see that you do have a print style available. I have two questions: 1.) Will style 4, 5, 6, or 7 also print out for my readers? 2.) Is there the ability to add an image to a coupon such as the advertisers logo? Okay, one more question: Is the size of all the coupons adjustable? I am seeing that some advertisers have a lot of restrictions associated with their coupons that are hard to fit into a small space. Okay, that’s it. Thank you!! Kathie

    • Hi Kathie,
      Thanks for your kind words.
      1. Yes all styles have print theme extension. So style 4,5,6,7 will support printing.
      2. Style 7 offers to add a advertiser logo, other styles don’t
      3. This plugin support coupon of length 15 to 20, and most styles will accommodate happily, but style 1 and 5 offers custom width and height.

      Please let me know if you have any other questions.
      Regards
      Jas

  13. Jaspreet, Thank you so much! I found so many options that has so many features and functions that I just didn\’t need. I really was looking hard for a simple, easy to use coupon plugin that would just put the coupons I needed into posts and allow me to edit/change them without editing each post. This has really made sharing coupons with my readers a lot easier! And, your customer service is outstanding. Thank you for getting back with me so quickly on each and every one of my questions, even when I had a ton at the very beginning!

    • Thanks heaps for your kind words Beth. I hope to bring many more features and style that will make this plugin even better. Keep your feedback coming and we’ll keep on improving this plugin.
      Thanks once again.
      Best Regards,
      Jas

  14. Hi,

    I’m using Lite version and want to install Pro version but need some more feature or changes from you, If you can do that for me. I like the way you represent the coupon but i need my post like promotionalcode.ca/codes/autopartsway-ca/, Can you do for that.

    means I need review section, Store short image etc.

    Thanks

    • Hi Anna,
      I am adding another theme to PRO soon but that’s not what you are looking for. Every coupon site have their own theme. I think I like the theme that you want so with some modifications I may be able to do that.
      Adding another couple of themes is a priority for next version. But I guess it wont happen in next few weeks. Good point on reviews but I am not sure whether I should add it to this plugin. I am sure though that the themes I am gonna add will be great as they are based on feedback that I got from existing customers. I think the next version should be available in December sometime.
      Cheers!
