Yes, you can add coupons for your customers to use on online orders. When you are logged into your Menufy Manager page locate the Discounts & Deals tab. From there, you should see the Coupons page. Click on it and you'll be directed to where you can customize a promotional coupon for Carryout and/or Delivery orders. Customization includes setting which weekdays/hours the coupon is valid, if it's a fixed price discount or a percentage off discount, if it can or cannot be used with certain menu categories or items, or if you want the coupon to require customers to sign up for your restaurant email list.

The Details is a brief description of the coupon, this field is optional you can leave it in blank or you can add the description, for example:
- 5% discount for new customers
- $5 discount for orders more than $20.00
The Code can be anything. It can be as obvious as 5OFF30 or a part of the restaurant’s name, SICILY10.
Here are some other examples of coupon codes:
Date Specifications - If you’d like to set a certain date range for your coupon, you may specify it in the Start and Stop sections. There is no limitation when it comes to dates, so coupons can be valid 1, 3, or even 10 years out!
Day/Time Specifications - Also, if you want a coupon to be valid on a specific day or time range during business hours, it is possible! However, you can only update this after the coupon is created. (More on this later!)

***Tips on Coupons
- When you finish creating your coupon, we suggest making this coupon visible on your Menufy website. Simply go to where you manage your Coupons and select the checkbox:
Day/Time Specifications - If you would like to have a coupon designated for a specific day or time range (happy hour, etc.), it will look something like this:
Select the Set Hours button:
Adjust to reflect the specific day(s) and correct times the coupon is available. Make sure to press the blue check button when you complete each day, as needed.
Once you’re done, you may exit the pop-up. You will now see this on the coupon page after everything is saved:

In addition to setting time/day requirements, coupons can now have Filters!
Select Filters and you’ll be able to set the specs:
Clients can choose which Categories and Items they would like the coupon to be valid for. (+Required) They can also choose which Categories and Items they do not want the coupon to be valid for (-Excluded).
Make sure to press Add Category Filter to add the filter. Once the filter has been added it will appear here:
When you go back to the Coupon page you will see the filter in Filters column.
***Tips on Filters:
If you have food specials already set up on your Menufy order site and you do not want coupons to be used on them, -Excluded will be your filter type, and then choose the menu categories for those specials.
- The coupon cannot be used if the customer has added any menu items to their online order from the Categories/Items selected to be -Excluded from the promotion.
If you have a coupon that is for a specific food category or item, +Required will be your filter type, and then choose the menu category (or categories) or item(s).
- The coupon can only be used if the customer has added menu items to their online order from the Categories/items selected to be +Required from the promotion.
- The coupon will be applied to the entire order and will not be applied to one single item.
