I posted a 15% coupon to facebook about an hour ago, and have already had an order! clap Thank you SmugMug!
how'd you get the coupon to show-up on your FB page?

I'm just wondering if there is any way to limit a coupon to 1 use per orderER? As in I give the same code to a lot of people (like printed on business cards), but limit it so "Sally" can't make 5 minimum orders, entering the code every time, therefore getting the discount 5 times?
Do I get a prize?<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
You do see orders placed with at-cost coupons show up in your sales history.
this is a departure from how at-cost orders that don't involve coupons which are not tracked.
Personally, I want all sales to be tracked so I know someone's bought something and can course-correct accordingly.
I wonder if there was an unintended "feature" added.
This person seems to have been notified of an "at cost" sale even without a coupon.
If it is, please don't "fix" it.
Next up: Quantity discounts.
- Discounts if total package purchase exceeds some dollar amount
- Discounts if more than one copy of a specific print is purchased
- Discounts if a subsequent print of the same image (same size or smaller) is purchased
Perhaps a little complicated. But it would help me sell to families where often one large print is purchased for the head of the family and many smaller prints are purchased for the children or siblings.
I too would like to see a coupon that can be locked for use only with a particular gallery and not globally for all my galleries.
I was ready to switch and you go and pull out the coupons. This has me so excited. I cannot believe it!
I think any pro who even wants to attempt to sell photos and doesn't come here is crazy at this point.
The only thing left (besides packages), is custom pro stickers on orders instead of the smugmug logo.
Does anyone have experience using coupons in other businesses?
There is a local company that I use for canvas printing, Canvas Press, which seems to always have some kind of coupon running at any given time. I see this pattern a lot.
Also, is there any worry that if I put out a limited-time %15 off coupon, for example, that customers later on will always ask, "what's my discount"?
Do these things really make up their discount with volume?
Please share your experiences!
I'm getting Fancy with the coupons.
I'm also using different coupons so I can measure which marketing is working the best.
My print prices are pretty low - maybe too low - but I am in a fairly competitive market, so I'm trying not to price myself out of business.
I have gotten a lot of print sales this weekend after creating some coupons. Which is terrific news! But, it's eating into my profit margin considerably. In addition, I have had a few sales where I've been upside-down, and I've owed money.
So, I'd appreciate having a conversation about how to price products and use coupons in such a way that... well... works. It's difficult to use the "Set Prices" screen to accurately understand how a coupon, and SmugMug's commission, will impact profit margins. There is a lot of math involved.
Shy of raising prices and lowering coupon values, anyone have any ideas? Let the collaboration begin!
I agree on that. I do a lot of sports photography for high schools and would like to set a coupon to expire x days after the game. My hopes is parents would stop procrastinating and purchase through the season instead of waiting for the season to be over which by then, they usually have lost interest. But then again, my strategy could be all wrong.
I'm disappointed that I can't specify which gallery a coupon is attached to. I just made one that will expire at the end of this week for 10% off pics from a basketball tournament.
I would also like to see a "credit" that applies only to downloads. That way, folks can get something for free that can't in any way result in an out-of-pocket expense.
