  4. Create a coupon code using numbers and letters.

  5. Enter a discount percentage or dollar amount.

Apply a coupon

Members can apply a coupon code at checkout, to an existing subscription (optional), or when they upgrade their Plan (optional). Staff can also apply a coupon to a member’s account from the Memberful dashboard.

Please note that if you've chosen to apply a prorated credit to upgrades in your Plan Groups Settings, and the charge-after-coupon is less than the credit for unused time, the credit will not be carried over to the new subscription.

Manage coupons

Navigate to Settings → Coupons to view coupon redemptions and active subscriptions.

Keep in mind that we only count redemptions when the coupon has been applied by a member. It's not considered a redemption if a staff member applies it from the Memberful dashboard. On the other hand, active subscriptions will show all active subscriptions.

You can also edit, disable, or delete your coupons.

If you disable a coupon, it won't affect members who are already using it, but it will no longer be applicable.

Disable coupon

If you delete the coupon, it will be removed from all subscriptions that use it. This action is not reversible.
