Using Discount Codes
Discount codes can be applied during initial signup for new members, or from an existing member’s account page when there are active discount codes:
- Registration – For new members, a Discount Code field will appear at the bottom of the registration form generated using the [wpay-register] shortcode.
- Account – When existing members visit their account, generated using the [wpay-account] shortcode, and click Upgrade for any of their plans, they will be prompted to enter a discount code.
- Subscription Plans – From the list of subscription plans generated using the [wpay-subscriptions] shortcode, choosing another subscription plan will prompt the member to enter a discount code.
Please ensure that the discount code’s Status is set to Active for it to be available for use.
