WordPress Coupon Code Generator

WordPress Coupon Generator

Coupon Code Generator does what it say it does, it generated coupons. You can see what coupons are already generated since they are stored in your WordPress dashboard. This plugin generates a random string that you can use for coupon code, promo code, voucher code or API code or everything else. By default it is not attached to any other system like WooCommerce or other.

More Info / Demo

[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.

  1. 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. 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.

  2. 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. 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 https://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.

  3. Aigar Superman Wow and awesome ,The plugins are wonderful and extraordinay you are rocking man,All are very very fine and trustworthy You are rocking man.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 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.

  6. Wow they are really helpful coupon themes and plugins. Definitely could find a great use for my upcoming projects as well as my WordPress related blog. Thank you for sharing this with us

    1. Mursaleen,

      Thank you for your feedback!

      These are definitely the best themes and plugins available for coupon related website. This collection isn’t perfect as there aren’t many really great themes and plugins but this niche is also very narrow that’s why developers like me aren’t looking to build themes or plugins. You can also see sales amount for some popular themes on this collection and you will see how limited is this niche. Of course there is some money to be made but not enough for most developers are there are plenty of other more profitable niches such as eCommerce and Business themes.

    1. Everything is possible by using WordPress. You just need to find the right plugin for that or implement your own functionality. There are no theme with this kind of functionality but WordPress is not just about themes and you can use plugins as well and there definitely should be some available that could help you. Unfortunately, I haven’t tried to create similar website, so I can’t recommend any plugins but Google will definitely help you to find it.

  7. Great collection of theme, and i am big fan of woo theme, and thanks for the coupon of wordpress theme. I love to buy this now in cybermonday sales

  8. 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.

    1. Thank you for your feedback!

      What makes Couponpress and Clipper so special? Is there some functionality that no other theme can offer or it’s just a personal preference?

        1. I might consider building one if there will be enough requests but it is definitely going to be premium plugin because all existing premium solution are really that bad.

  9. Shame your not selling your plugin, I seriously have to go and buy a theme to get anything that looks modern (just want the plugin function)

  10. Wow! Thank you for the list. This was very helpful. I was looking for them for a long time. This page provided the best of all.

    1. Devendra,
      Thank you for your feedback!
      I see that you are already using Couponize for your website. Really nice choice and that’s also my favorite theme on this theme collections.

  11. I got Clipper theme with flatter child theme. It works great! Thanks for your collection of coupon themes and plugins

  12. Been searching for some alternatives to regular coupon plugins and you have the best list here. Thank you so much. Will give Couponize a try. Thanks.

    1. It doesn’t matter when theme was first released what matters the most is if developer still maintains it and released updates. If so then theme could be released 3-4 years ago but might still be responsive, mobile-friendly and feature a modern design. Some theme are outdated before they even become available, so that’s something you should keep in mind while choosing the right theme for your website.

  13. Thanks for this information, i have used couponpress before i had some problems with it then i moved to clipper theme.

  14. Google doesn’t like WordPress and affiliates!
    I created a website using WordPress and affiliates to get coupons from advertisers. From technical point of view everything looks ok but Google doesn’t show my site when related search keyword is entered. If shoppers can’t find you on the web when they enter the related keyword, no commission is earned. Read more about this at different places on the web and use your judgment.

    1. Den,

      You are absolutely correct that Google doesn’t like affiliate and coupon websites. But this doesn’t just apply to affiliate and coupon website but any gateway websites that doesn’t offer any value but are made to manipulate Google results. Any website that doesn’t add anything unique and are meant for quick profit will never rank high on Google search.

      While you might think that RetailMeNot is the same style website it actually isn’t. It is community driven website and offers millions of different coupons and all these coupons are regularly updated by users. Users can also see if this coupon still works as everyone have a chance to vote if coupon is still working or not. While you might think that it is a tiny thing it is actually a huge deal and offers much more reliable results that your website ever will.

      There is still a chance for your website but you need to find some unique twist and not just copy your competitors.

  15. Hi Aigars,

    It’s a great list of coupon themes & plugins.

    You are right that Google doesn’t like the gateway sites. But it doesn’t much effect the intention of the people who want to make handsome money with the coupon sites.

    I presume that, this is going to be the era of deals n coupon websites, as it is one of the most profitable way one can make some good money.

    Thanks for sharing the list.

    1. Manidipa,

      It is possible to make money with coupon website but you need to have an unique twist and sustainable business model. Dropping few hundred or few thousand coupons won’t make it. User powered website could be a whole different thing but you need to get first traction and for that you need some marketing budget or again some unique twist for your whole venture. Otherwise it is going to be just gateway website just like 98% of other coupon sites out there.

      I might sound really pessimistic but I have been involved in internet marketing for the past 6 years and I have seen way too many complaints on webmaster forums about coupon website and their poor ranking. I would love to help these webmasters before they have wasted their valuable time on something that won’t work. Coupon website does work well but only when webmaster have something unique to offer. Think RetailMeNot.

  16. Is there any free coupon theme ? I want to make a coupon code, deals, offers etc website based on affiliate program like amazon.

    1. Avinash,

      There aren’t any free themes but there are free plugins that you can use with any free or premium WordPress theme. Here are some free WordPress themes that you might want to consider using for your upcoming website.

  17. Greetings,

    Could you please let me know if it is possible to have multi-language for Couponer? I mean can I translate it to Russian and how difficult it is?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    P.S. sorry for typo and rest language issues

    1. Alex,

      Couponer theme is compatible with WPML plugin (sold separately) that will help you to make your website multilingual. Translation is really easy and support for WPML plugin is outstanding. If you will have any problems with translation, WPML team will help you to get things sorted.

      If you want to translate theme in Russian and use it only in one language you can follow this guide to lear how you can translate any WordPress theme. No technical knowledge is required and it is really simple process.

      Let me know if you have any other questions about WordPress theme translation or multilingual support.

  18. Thanks for putting this together. Have you come across a template that can be used as the on-line version of our local coupon mailer, to be able to print or email the coupons? All of the above is for coupon codes or deals, we actually produce free (to the consumer) savings using printed coupons. The system we use now is “rented” from an old online software service provider, with limited customization.

    1. Steve,

      WordPress themes are all about design and some basic functionality. Functionality such as your mentioned coupon printing is delivered using plugins or some other external services or software. Therefore there aren’t any WordPress themes that have this kind of functionality you are after and you still need to “rent” software from other vendors and combine it with WordPress or other content management system.

  19. hi!! I use Clipper theme for my coupon site. very easy to use. integrate the best affiliate programs…Cheers

    1. For me Clipper theme feels outdated but it’s functionality is hard to match. It is so well built that this theme will live for several more years to come. Hopefully, it will face some redesign at some point but other than that this theme is here to stay.
