Why limit a percentage discount coupon?

↑ Back to top

You might offer a 70% discount to attract more customers, but this could result in an overall loss. By setting a maximum discount limit, you control the maximum amount a customer can save.

Consider you are running a flat 70% off on your store but you limit the maximum discount to $50. If a customer purchases a product worth $100, they would typically expect a 70% discount, reducing the price to $30. However, with a maximum discount limit of $50, the customer will get the product for $50 instead of $30.

This approach ensures you can afford the discount while still providing a compelling offer to attract customers.
