Managing coupons

The coupon manager within Quick Shopping Cart® lets you create and issue product coupons that customers can apply to the order total. For information on generating links for coupons, see Using Site Links for Store Promotion.

Note: Tax is calculated on the discounted subtotal if Flat Tax or State-based Tax are enabled in the Quick Shopping Cart Tax Manager. If VAT is enabled, tax is calculated per product first and then the coupon discount is applied to the taxed subtotal.
