Managing coupons

All the coupons for your booking website are listed under Account > System settings > Websites > Edit Website > Coupons. Each coupon has a status, a number of uses by your guests and how many times a coupon was applied to a reservation or inquiry.

The statuses are:

  • Active (redeemable by guests if conditions apply)
  • Expired
  • Disabled (manually)

Canceled reservations and inquiries do count as a coupon use.
