WooCommerce REST API ↑ Back to top

Since Smart Coupons REST API is based on WooCommerce REST API you’ll need WooCommerce REST API setup on your store. Along with this, Smart Coupons REST API also follows the same syntax & structure with some additional features which we are going to learn in this documentation.

WooCommerce REST API allows you to create coupons via API but it requires a coupon code. If you’ll not pass the coupon code, WooCommerce REST API will not work for you. Here Smart Coupons REST API comes to the rescue. It doesn’t require a coupon code to generate a coupon via API.

Let’s see this with an example. In this example, we have used the tool Postman to send the API request.
