Using Customer Coupons add-on
Customer Coupons add-on does not have any global settings, so after installing and activating the add-on add or edit your automation.
Let's say that you want to send a unique customer coupon as a thank you for reviewing a product. We will use this example below, however you can create coupons for any other event, not only for product reviews.
Creating the automation
- Use the Review Published event.
- Configure the Send Email action.
- Create a template coupon following the instructions below.
- Place the shop.coupon placeholder in you message.
Creating the template coupon
You have to create a new private coupon in WooCommerce which will be a template for a new unique customer coupon.
- In your WordPress admin, go to menu: WooCommerce → Coupons → Add Coupon.
- Enter a code and description for your coupon. For example a code:

Make the coupon private. It is very important, because ShopMagic will only use private coupons as templates. Apart from that you will make sure that the template coupon is not used by anyone:
Configure the coupon with the desired settings. Set the type, discount, product limits, etc. These settings will be used when the unique customer coupon is created:
After creating the template coupon, go back to your automation.
Using the shop.coupon placeholder
When you create the message, include the shop.coupon placeholder. When the email is sent, a unique customer coupon will be created.
