WP Coupons and Deals Plugin – Click To Copy Coupon

I just released another WordPress plugin to the WordPress Plugin Repository. It’s WP Coupons and Deals plugin.

As the name suggests, the plugin can be used to show coupons and deals on your WordPress sites. What makes this plugin better is the functionality of click to copy coupons and it’s lightweight.

I was using another plugin on my sites where I promote coupon codes and deals. The problem was the plugin was not updated anymore by the developer and it depended on Flash for the click to copy functionality, which is a slow process and not a very secure one. On top of that, the plugin was loading four or five scripts on every page, even where it was not necessary.

So I thought of solving this problem and come up with my own plugin. To my luck, I found this script which made my work hundred times easier, thanks to Zeno Rocha.

WP Coupons and Deals Plugin

I used the script and basic WordPress features to build the plugin.

Key Features of The Plugin

  • Very lightweight, loads fast.
  • Responsive and attractive shortcode.
  • Insert shortcode directly from the post editor.
  • Click to copy functionality.
  • Update: Version 1.2 – Now you can show coupons and deals on widget areas using a widget.
  • Update: Version 1.4 – Now you can show only coupon code instead of the full coupon with details.
  • Easy to use settings.
  • Coupon categories to categorize your coupons.
  • Expiration system to show coupon expiration.

Pro Version Features

  • Hide Coupons.
  • Expiration Time Countdown.
  • Coupon Templates.
  • Show Specific Coupons.
  • Show All Coupons Of Specific Category.
  • Coupons Archive Page.

Check Out the Pro Version.

How The Coupons Look

Y0u can show coupon codes or deals on your site just using simple shortcodes.

Here are some examples for you. First one is a coupon code type and second on is a deal type.

The Pro version comes with coupon templates. You can choose different templates for individual coupons.

How To Install The Plugin

You can install the plugin just how you install every other WordPress plugin.

Installing the plugin using the Zip file:

  • Download the plugin.
  • Go to Add New from Plugins Section. Click on Upload Plugin button on the top.
  • Choose the zip file from your computer and click on Install Now.
  • Activate it and you’re done.

Installing the plugin directly from WordPress:

  • From WordPress dashboard, go to Add new under Plugins sections.
  • On the search bar type ‘WP Coupons and Deals’.
  • You should see it on results. Click on Install and then activate. You’re done.

How To Use The Plugin

After you have installed the plugin, you can see Coupons menu item on your WordPress Dashboard. It comes with a little scissor icon.

If you hover on that menu item, you’ll see four items.

  • Coupons
  • Add New Coupon
  • Coupon Categories
  • Settings

Coupons

It shows the list of all coupons you have created. The list show other information like Coupon type, Coupon code, Description, Link, Categories, Shortcode and Expiration date.

Manage all your coupons from this screen. You can copy the coupon shortcode from here and paste it on your posts and pages.

Add New Coupon

This is where add new coupons. Here’s how it looks.

You can set various information about your code. This is the information you see on the coupons list. Also, shortcode will use this information for the output.

You can choose to Hide or show expiration. If you choose to show the expiration, you can select a date when the coupon expires.

Coupon Categories

Coupon categories help you to categorize your coupons. Here’s how you would add a new category.

WP Coupons and Deals plugin - Add Category

From the coupons list, when you click on the Category it will show coupons on that category.

Settings

Settings page contain some basic settings you can set. Here’s how it looks.

You can use leave it as it is to use the default settings or you can set your own.

How To Show The Coupons On Posts And Pages

After you have created some coupons, it’s time to show them on posts and pages. Here’s how you can do it.

You can copy the shortcode from the coupons list and paste it on post and page editor.

But to make your task easier, I have added an “Add Coupon” button on editor, so you can insert the coupons directly from there.

When you click on the button, a window pops up and you can select the coupon you want to show.

From version 1.4 you can select the shortcode type.

One is full coupon with all details and another is only coupon code.

How can only coupon code be useful? Let’s say you create a table with some of your coupon codes. Now, instead of showing the full coupon you can just show the coupon code. That would be easier.

Click on ‘Insert Coupon Shortcode’ button. Your coupon shortcode will be inserted with the corresponding ID.

WP Coupons and Deals plugin - Coupon Shortcode Insert

After you have inserted the shortcode, publish or update your posts, pages and you can see the coupon live.

Note: If you use the Pro Version, you can search for your coupon instead of selecting it from a dropdown.

    Hi,

    I have tested the plugin on iOS. It’s working. There could be an issue with other plugin you use. Specifically, you have any JavaScript minifying plugin, can you turn that off and check if it works?

    Thanks

Thank you for the wonderful plugin. Brilliant work. Please tell me, how to show all coupons/deals in a single page. So users can see the all coupons, say 15 coupons after a ‘view more’ like blog posts per page. When user click ‘view more’ see 15 more ans so on. Or show 15 coupons and at the end show numbers 1,2,3,etc. /Next, back to view older coupons. So all coupons can display in a single page.

    Hi,

    Glad to know you liked the plugin.

    As of now we don’t have that feature. You can individually insert all the shortcodes in a page. Although it’s a tough work, that’s the only way as of now.

    Thank you.

      Also using Affiliate Coupons plugin, there we have an option to display all coupons, by giving [affcoups_coupons]. The same way I Simply added the short code in a page without the coupon id, it shows all the coupon posts. For a few posts, it’s OK, but after a few posts some design flaws are noted. I think it’s nice feature to display all coupons in a page. Anyways, great work and for the great mind to give it as free. Salute !

Great work, Imtiaz Rayhan.
I think there should be a “Show More or Read More” button when we add a long description about the deal.
And can I submit the coupon category to search engine? I am not finding the category URL.

    Imtiaz Rayhan

    Thank you. Glad to know you liked the plugin. Yes, some other users also wanted something like this and we’ll be adding that in a future update.

    When you add coupon category, they are just added on the backend. No page is created for the category. If you are using the Pro version of the plugin, you can create a page with a category name and use the shortcode to show all post from a specific category on that page. This shortcode is only available for Pro version.
