Two sides of a coin are pleasant: people hunt for coupons and buy more having them and you generate more income. Sounds good, agree?

It’s not necessary to buy expensive plugins to manage coupons, there are some good free solutions on the official wp.org repository.

In this collection we’ve tried to find tools for e-shops, so they can easily generate coupons or automate this work without a hassle on the WordPress site. Here you’ll find some coupons for shops and for promoting your affiliate marketing. However, if you don’t run a shop and just want to build a coupon website across various affiliate programs, there are some plugins for you as well.

Conclusions

To be honest, I’d like to see more such solutions, free or freemium, no matter. Because most of free ones now have limitations – either limited to WooCommerce, or come with awkward design or not updated. There are tons of small e-shops and affiliate websites that would be happy to get an ultimate coupon plugin – easy to use and with attractive design. So, this is a huge field for new solutions.

However, I believe you can choose from what we have now and manage your discount marketing tactics easier engaging more audience and increasing revenue!

    Looks like a great alternative! Taking into account that there are not a lot of good coupon plugins, I think yours should be in the list.

    • Hi Ann,

      I would really appreciate if you could add it to the list. That’d be great.
