[Update] We have created a dedicated coupon section on our website and you can see it here. This sections is based on completely custom built solution based on flash “copy to clipboard” solution. This solution is not perfect but it is far better than any other plugin out there. The problem with our implementation is that it won’t copy coupon to clipboard because it is based on Flash and Flash is not supported on any of mobile devices such as iOS, Windows Phone and Android.

Other solution mentioned above are great because you don’t need any coding knowledge to make them work or even customize but if you are looking to create something that looks stunning and is also usable and easy to use then you will most likely end up creating your own platform like we did. There are plenty of great libraries on Github that could help you get started but none of them are optimized for WordPress by default and you will have to get your head around it on your own. If you are not developer then I would strongly recommend to choose a premium WordPress theme with this functionality integration because you can’t go wrong with them.

    Thanks for sharing this valuable information with us. Let me add that we have a few coupon websites and in half of them we use Clipper; we are very happy about it. Our second one is Couponpress and is also advised.

    I have tried some of the plugins you mentioned here. Most of them are useless. Up your sale and JC Coupon are really worthy.

    I have used both clipper and Couponpress and had a really bad experience with them

    1. Aigars

      Thanks for sharing your plugin!

      Since there are not so many good coupon plugins there is a huge room for new plugins, themes and scripts.

      I recently was looking for decent coupon plugin (free or paid) and ended up creating my own solution because some of already existing solution are too complex, too slow or doesn’t work at all. I haven’t looked into your plugin just yet but hopefully you will keep working on it because there is really a potential in this area.

    Thank you Aigars, for the extensive list of Coupon Theme’s. I personally like Volume Discount Coupons Plugin. its not free however offers enough options to pay for itself.

    1. Aigars

      Personally I don’t like any of currently available WordPress coupon plugins. I recently created coupon section on this website which you can see here http://colorlib.com/wp/coupons/ and I had to create my own solution because nothing worked well for me. Most of these plugins look automated, are slow or doesn’t work a tall. I created a clean, minimalistic setup and I know that I can always tweak it since I made it myself and know everything what it does.

    Thanks for this list! I wish I had seen this before list before. I think I just got scammed by purchasing from wpcoupon.com The software doesn’t work and support is dead slow. On top of that the software was too expensive. I should have known better.

    Hi Aigars, Will you be releasing your custom made coupon plugin at all? It’s exactly what I’m looking for and all the others seem really rubbish. Would be more than happy to pay for it if it was a premium plugin. Thanks

    1. Aigars

      James,

      So far I have two potential buyers which is not yet enough to start working on this plugin as currently it doesn’t function as plugin but is created as part of our theme. I have not abandoned this idea but I can’t give you any exact release date either. Sorry about that.
