In a Multivendor X-Cart store with the addon Coupons installed and enabled, both the store administrator and vendors can create and manage discount coupons.

Coupons: Vendor experience

Vendors can create and manage coupons via the Coupons section (Discounts > Coupons) of the Vendor area: mvcoupons_coupons_section_in_vendor.png

Coupons created by a vendor are applied only to the products of that particular vendor.

Vendors can view and manage only the coupons that they own. In their personal Vendor area, they do not have access to any coupons owned by the other vendors or the store administrator.

Coupons: Multivendor store administrator experience

The store administrator can view and manage coupons via the Coupons section (Discounts > Coupons) of the Admin area. mvcoupons_coupons_section_in_admin.png

The administrator can view, edit and delete coupons created by the vendors.

If the administrator themselves is also a vendor, they can create and manage coupons for their own products. Administrator coupons are not visible to vendors and can be applied only to the products owned by the administrator. To create a coupon for themselves, the administrator must specify that they themselves are the owner of the coupon. This can be done using the Vendor field in the coupon details: mvcoupons_admin_coupon.png

If necessary, the administrator can create coupons on behalf of vendors. To create a coupon for a vendor, the administrator needs to specify this vendor as the owner of the coupon using the Vendor field in the coupon details: mvcoupons_vendor_coupon_created_by_admin.png
