Discount codes for subscriptions

  1. Is there any way to allow the customer to add a discount code for the PayPal add-on (I am doing a subscription based site). E.g. A customer would input a code like "ef091w" and then you could set a discount percentage and it would be applied with the said discount code (kind of a like a coupon)?

  2. There is no coupon functionality built in to Gravity Forms right now, but there is a coupon add-on in development. Look for it in the coming weeks.

    In the meantime, this customer coded up something:

  3. Here's a workaround.

    Create two versions of your product fields with different pricing.

    Create a text field called "coupon code".

    Change the logic of your product fields to
    "hide this field if any of the following match: coupon code is XXX"
    and
    "show this field if any of the following match: coupon code is XXX"

    Right now I'm using this workaround to allow for a free product. If you enter the correct coupon code it hides the product and shows a dropdown menu instead that looks the same. The form will post and you will not get forwarded to Paypal.

    Gravity Forms has a lot of possibilities if you take the time to think your workflow through.

    It shouldn't be long after we release the final 1.7 version for everyone. All my best!
