  • Code Length. That’s where the Qty of symbols in the code is defined. Prefixes, suffixes and separators are not included in the total length.
  • Code Format. Here, you choose what format your coupon code will have. It may include either numbers or letters only, or both numbers and letters.
  • Code Prefix. If you want customers to see the value of a coupon code at its beginning, enter the numbers here. You can also leave it blank if you don’t want to display any value.
  • Code Suffix. Do you want to see the value of a coupon code at its end? Enter the required figures in this field or leave it blank if you don’t need these data.
  • Dash Every X Characters. If you feel like including a dash ‘-‘ in your coupon code, indicate an interval where to use it. Or leave the field blank if no separation is needed.

Congrats! You’ve completed all the necessary step to configure the look and feel of your coupon codes, and all on your own! I hope you haven’t forgotten to press ‘SAVE’ before navigating away.
