This documentation is for the WooRewards plugin
This add-on adds a new reward type to WooRewards, the WooCommerce Subscription Coupon. It will only work if you have the WooCommerce Subscriptions plugin.
Installation and activation
First, you have to purchase the add-on. Since it’s a premium add-on, you can’t install it directly. Therefore, go to Woorewards Add-ons and purchase the add-on. Then, download the zip file (link in the order confirmation) and install it like a new plugin.
After the installation, go to MyRewards → System → License management and enter your license key (also received in the order confirmation). That’s it, you’re good to go.
How the reward works
It’s important to understand how the reward works before using it. This reward generates a coupon that customers can use on a future order. Therefore, they can’t use the coupon on an active subscription. They can only use it on a new subscription.
If you want to offer discounts on ongoing subscriptions, you should look at the partial refund reward add-on. This other add-on is much more versatile for advanced systems.
When the customer earns the subscription reward, he’s able to use it when he wants on the cart. However, he can only use it if he has a subscription product on the cart. This coupon can give a discount :
- On the initial subscription
- For X recurring payments
- For all recurring payments
Setup the reward
Go to WooRewards → Points and Rewards and select a Points and Rewards system to edit.
In the new window, go into the Rewards or Levels and Rewards group.
In the rewards list (or inside a level), click the Add button and select Subscriptions Coupon from the Coupons category.
Click the Next button.
There are a lot of options available, we’ll look at each of them in detail so that you know which ones to use :
- Title : The reward’s title. Customers will see this on various widgets, emails and WooCommerce pages.
- Description : The reward’s description. Customers will see it on various widgets and emails.
- Featured image : The reward’s image. Customers will see this when they receive a new reward email or inside rewards widgets.
- Coupon Description : The WooCommerce coupon’s description. Every time customers unlock this reward, it will generate a WooCommerce coupon with that description.
- Points needed : The points the customer needs in order to unlock that reward. You won’t see that information in leveling points and rewards systems as this value is directly inside the level.

Limit to X items example
In this example, you’ve set the Coupon amount to 20% and the Limit to X items value to 2, then the coupon can only be used to discount the value of 2 products at most.
If, in your cart, you have 3 products worth 10$ each, the total discount applied will be 4$ and not 6$ since it can only be applied on 2 products.
