Smart Coupons compatibility with PayPal Standard

Smart Coupons provide a powerful, “all-in-one” solution for gift certificates, store credits, discount coupons, and vouchers extending the core functionality of WooCommerce coupons.

This doc article explains the compatibility of Smart Coupons with PayPal Standard & how the discount calculation happens.

Since PayPal doesn’t allow discount on shipping & taxes, it’s not possible to use store credit on such orders in which the store credit amount is more than items total but less than the order total (items total + shipping + taxes) & the order is being paid by PayPal.

For this feature to work correctly, you’ll need to enable “Apply before tax” under WooCommerce > Settings > Smart Coupons.
