Discount codes are often the main reason a potential customer commits to making a purchase. A large number of online shoppers today include searching for a discount into the process of online purchasing, so it only makes sense to make it easy for your customers to find and use discount codes with your Gator store.

That's it! Customers can now use your code at checkout to receive a special deal! You can manage all your different codes from the Discounts main screen within the left-hand menu.
Pro Tip: Customers who walk through the Store Checkout will be able to utilize multiple discounts such as a Free Shipping offer combined with a  Total Amount Discount.  Similar discount codes cannot be stacked or combined. (Ex: If you have given a customer a $1 off code and a $2 off code, only one will reflect in the total. However, you could offer customers a % or $  discount combined with a Free shipping discount, and they both should reflect at checkout.
