Coupons for specific items
I would like to be able to be more specific with coupons.. such as choose specific products or print sizes that the coupon applies too.
While we are finalizing the assessment, this is being marked Under Review since the implementation plan is in the process of been defined.
What does it mean when you have PLANNED highlighted under comments??
Do it ASAP!!
The current coupon program is pretty worthless. It really needs to be improved. There needs to be a one time use per user not per coupon. The way it is now; if you limit the usage to one it can be used by only once by only one customer. If you limit it to two; it can be used by two customers one each or by one customer twice.
You should also be able to limit it's use to specific products.
This would make a world of difference. This should be a priority for you to get this done ASAP. Thanks
Seriously important to all event & venue photographers...

Amazed that this isn't in place yet... I want to offer free print coupons - not discounts on everything I sell. C'mon Zenfolio...make this happen!

I posted or commented on something similar awhile back, and I need to again. WHY prints AND products? There is such a huge difference in profit margin on prints vs. books and other specialty items.
I offered 40% on prints to a group of customers this holiday season, and just had a customer order three accordion books along with prints. Because of the markup difference, they ended up getting all the accordion books for FREE! Thanks for that Zenfolio!
I would love to be able to offer coupon discounts on specific product categories. For instance, a coupon for small photo prints vs all photo products.

Yes! This would be so beneficial to choose specific products vs a whole product line for a coupon to be applied toward. Please consider making this addition a priority. Thank you!!

Here's how it looks in Shopify. Sure is nice. http://www.rmfullerton.com/p476991000/h6D2D7FD4#h6d2d7fd4
When we go to create a coupon, we are given broad options:
Prints and Products
NOT any 'special' deals, limits (size or subtypes). For example, if someone wants to offer the coupon ONLY for 8x10's, or ONLY 'web-ready' (small) download sizes. There is no option to designate that 'special' or offer. It's 'all or nothing' of that selected category, for the gallery(ies) selected, which is frankly a very poor option & choice.
Especially for the top two level Business Accounts, there should be an option for Coupons to be PRODUCT SPECIFIC. 50% off JUST 8x10's (or what ever the photog defines). xx% off 'Personal Use web-proofs' (limit one per customer, per gallery).
It's great that coupons exist, and they can be limited to specific galleries. However, not allowing the photog to further break down specifically WHICH PRODUCT (EXACTLY) in their price list, and HOW MANY (per gallery), is very limiting.
Surely I can't be the only person that has seen this as a problem and issue that should be addressed, asap.
NOPE - I'm NOT THE ONLY ONE... So, as they say, JUST DO IT... please!
Shameful that this feature hasn't been done yet... there are so many ways this could benefit both the photographers AND zenfolio, as clients would be more likely to spend MORE MONEY!
Please step this up to a priority! Get R Done... far too many are wanting and needing this feature!

Just wanted to hop on board and say that this is definitely a feature that we would love to have!! Our studio does everything from corporate events and headshots to weddings, architecture, etc... anyhow, having this feature would be useful in so many different scenarios in each segment of what we do and would definitely help to generate many more sales.

Yes please, would make allocating discounts on self fulfilled products so much easier
Yes! This would be great for marketing. For instance, send out an email that says "Claim your FREE 8x10" print" or something, and the client can select a photo from their gallery and apply said coupon for one 8x10" print.
On devrait aussi avoir la possibilité d'appliquer un coupon à une personne et pas seulement à une galerie.
I just added a new print to a gallery. I wanted to market it by allowing anyone to buy one at 20% off this weekend. I am shocked to find I can't discount an image. And even more shocked that I can't have one coupon per customer. Isn't this pretty basic stuff? And I see it has been asked for by 100s of people for over 4 years.
If you check the "one time only" box, only one customer can use it. Your other customers will find that the coupon has expired. But, if you leave the box un-checked a customer can use a dollar-off coupon multiple times. For example, he can make three orders and take $5 off each order, where your intention was to give a $5 coupon to each customer.
There should be a box for "one time use for EACH customer."
