by Andrew Reed, on May 5, 2021 3:30:53 PM
Coupons are a common and effective tool used to accomplish a number of marketing goals. Whether it is having customers sign up for newsletters, refer you to a friend, share your products on social media, or make a purchase, a coupon code can be a lucrative incentive to new and returning customers.
Fortunately, if you are using Shopify for your ecommerce store, there are a number of apps that make generating coupon codes simple, quick and easy. Many of these are available in Shopify’s app store and therefore easy to install in your Shopify instance.
We rounded up some of the most popular coupon apps for Shopify users and have listed them here.
Make pop-ups fun while collecting valuable leads with this spin wheel discount tool. With the option to choose between a spin wheel, slot machines, or a scratch card, you can now delight your customers with your entertaining pops instead of frustrating them with standard intrusive ones.
“The application is great! We've been using it for a year and a half and it's been very effective. My email list is growing day by day. The customer service is very reactive.You can go with your eyes closed”
“Love the app. Actually just installed a day ago and I've already generated enough revenue to cover the cost of it for the remainder of the year. I had some questions during set up and they were all answered in a timely manner. This app comes highly recommended from me!”
Instead of creating different codes for the same markdown one by one, Avada creates an unlimited number of codes for the same discount. Simply enter the quantity you want to generate and their pattern/format and Avada will automatically produce codes you can distribute among your different customers.
“Great app, very easy to use. Been using it for a while for a couple of clients and I could say is easily the best custom discount code app out there. Support is also great” (5 stars)
“Did exactly what we needed. Very fast and straightforward app. We are happy this app doesn't require user base access or order access so we keep our customers’ privacy.” (Five Stars)

KartDiscount wants to help you boost your conversion rates and drag down those cart abandonments but giving customers the ability to add coupon codes on your cart page, instead of at checkout.
Customers who have codes may get confused or decide not to buy at earlier steps than the checkout page, so giving customers the ability to add them early on will increase the traffic down your sales funnel.
“This app really helps improve conversions. It does two things: (1) it shows the applied discount on the cart page, and (2) it allows customers to combine/stack both manual and automatic discounts . Store owners can control the way discounts can be combined. Customer service is generally responsive if you allow for timezone delay (they are based in India). When I discovered a bug in the app, customer service fixed it within a few days. I only have one niggle / suggestion for improvement: notifications to customers (e.g about minimum order values) are shown for only a very brief moment. It would be good if the display duration of notifications could be edited.”
“Automatic discount feature works amazing, and it's far more superior as compare to Shopify's own automatic discounts. I can dynamically decide which automatic discount should be applied. Customer can remove automatic discount and apply any discount code they have. It works with stacking, so one manual discount and one automatic discount.”
Price: $9.99/month (7-day free trial)
Nearly two-thirds of your customers will leave your site without making a purchase. Last Second Coupon works to increase your conversion rate by offering exiting shoppers discounted items.
Customize everything from templates to cart values and page triggers, and Last Second Coupon will produce trackable metrics so you can keep tabs on how effective your campaign is.
“Great, simple and free app that does exactly what it describes. No ads or self promo watermarks. Out of 4392 pop-ups it got me 92 sales with a total of $3,772 so definitely works.”
“I really like the app, because it helps me get the eye of the people who don't sign up for a coupon. This still allows me to create an email list when they checkout using the last second coupon and the fact that it stays at the top of computer so the customer doesn't forget about it is a plus.”
Bulk is another great app for generating multiple codes for the same discounted rates, saving you valuable time and effort.
On top of this, using unique codes will help protect you against users abusing your coupon strategy by sharing and reusing codes.
“Wow! Super impressed on how user friendly this app is! Created them in like 30 seconds! Definitely saved so much time and frustration creating each code manually!”
“Exactly what I needed! Thanks for making the task super easy. Manually creating the codes in bulk was a mess!”
