Why limit a percentage discount coupon

For example, to attract more customers, you may run heavy discounts like 70% off but it may turn out to be an overall loss. So using this feature as a trick, you can set the maximum discount a customer will get.

Consider you run a flat 70% off on your store and set the maximum discount to $50 (the amount which you can afford to spend to convert a customer). Looking at the heavy discount offer, a customer will choose to buy a $100 product. But the customer will get the product at $50 and not $30 because the maximum discount is set as $50.

How to set up
