How to create a shareable coupon link in Coupon X

In this guide we’ll show you how you can create a shareable coupon link in a few super simple and quick clicks.

With this feature you can create a shareable link that you can use to promote your discount on different pages (e.g. in your social media channels, on landing pages, by e-mail) or to direct customers to your store’s homepage or to a specific page of a product/ products.

To note: the discount code associated with the link will apply automatically to your customer’s cart at check-out.  

Let’s get right into it.

First, open the Coupon X app in your admin panel and click on the ”Edit” option next to your widget.

Click on ”Widget design” in the page that will open.

To create a shareable discount link, under ”When visitors click on the widget, show them”, select the ”Link to any page, or use shareable discount link” option. It will get highlighted.

In the ”Link” field below, copy a link to any page you want, or create a link with a shareable coupon.

Important!: before you can create a shareable link, you need to create a discount code that includes the products you want to include. 

Here is how you can create a shareable link: open your Shopify admin panel and click on ‘’Discounts’’, then select the name of the discount you want to promote and click on ‘’Promote’’, then select ‘’Get a shareable link’’. It’s time to select the page or product(s) you want the link to open to. Finally, you need to click on ‘’Copy link’’ to copy the shareable link to your clipboard. After you copy a shareable link to your clipboard, you can post or embed it wherever you want to promote your discount.

You can also redirect a shareable link to a page other than your store’s home page. To do this, you need to manually add a redirect to the URL.

Here is how to do this: open your Shopify admin panel and click on ‘’Discounts’’, then select the name of the discount you want to promote and click on ‘’Promote’’, then select ‘’Get a shareable link’’. Next, click on ‘’Copy link’’ and paste it into a text editor. Change the URL extension from …/discount/code to …/discount/code?redirect=/new-path.

Important!: make sure you change ‘’new-path’’ to match the URL extension of the page that you want to link to, for example: …/discount/code?redirect=/collections/fresh-finds. After you change the link’s URL extension, you can post or embed it wherever you want to promote your discount.

You can also select whether you want the page to be open in a new tab by clicking on the ”Open New Tab” box below.

You can add a headline, a description (e.g. minimum spend applicable) and what text you wish to be displayed in the action button, for example ”copy”. 
After this, you need to fill in the widget settings from the customisation menu that will show up below. This is how your customers will see the widget.
As usual, you can also fully customise your widget in terms of colours to match your preferences.
 
In the end, it should look something like this, depending on your customisations:
 
 
When you’re ready setting up, just click on ”Publish” at the bottom of the page. That’s it! Easy as 1,2,3 ☺️
