WordPress has some fantastic coupon code themes. But when it comes to WordPress coupon code plugins, there are very few in the market. And most of them failed to fulfill the expectations.
That’s why I had to use “DRP Coupon” plugin for years even if it was deleted from WordPress directory. Now I am using the plugin “WP Coupons and Deals”.
In this post, I’ll be sharing a detailed review of the plugin. BTW, this plugin is developed by my younger brother, Imtiaz Rayhan. So please forgive me if I am a little bit biased in the review.
Now let’s see an overview of features, templates, options, pricing of the plugin.
The features of this plugin are designed to protect your affiliate sales and generate more revenue. Let’s explore some the amazing features of the plugin.
Click to Copy Functionality
This is the technique that big coupon sites like RetailMeNot and Groupon are using to secure their affiliate commissions. The idea is to make sure that the user clicks on the affiliate link while coping the coupon code or visiting the deal page. [wpcd_coupon id=17839]
Click to Reveal Functionality
This feature takes one step ahead in securing affiliate sales. It makes sure that the user cannot see or copy the coupon code without clicking on the affiliate link. [wpcd_coupon id=17882]
People have a fear of missing out. That’s why scarcity marketing works great. Thanks to the “Expiration Counter” feature of the plugin which creates an urgency of using the coupon/deal.
