Incentives such as coupons are a great way to boost sales by winning over new customers, encouraging additional spending, or enticing customers to return to their abandoned carts. From a marketing standpoint, coupon codes can help build mailing lists and provide campaign content.  The OneSource ERP Ultimate edition framework allows you to take advantage of this functionality from your Magento eCommerce platform.  Coupons can be configured for one-time use per customer or for a given date range.  Track your multitude of web site coupon codes individually in your ERP or bundle them all together into a single ERP summary discount code.  Contact Allegro for more information on how to  use coupon codes with your OneSource ERP.

 

Noggin nugget: “In 2014, 16 billion digital coupons were redeemed. This figure is projected to grow to 31 billion online coupons in 2019. Experts claim that redemption will mainly be driven by mobile coupons.” 1

    The complex shipping customization adds shipping rules to support multiple warehouses and charge delivery rates from each warehouse origin. Break customer orders down by product group.

This type of order can become two separate orders in the ERP yet allow the customer to pay for them together.
