Let customers know why their coupon code is not working
The Magento Custom Coupon Code Error Messages extension allows Magento store administrators to create, track, and display custom coupon error messages when customers attempt to apply a coupon code to their shopping cart, and provides a reason for why that discount cannot be applied or the custom coupon is not valid.
A single coupon code that isn’t working can result in decreased sales and more work for a customer service team, who must repeatedly explain the error to customers.
Add Custom Coupon Code Error Messages
Customers will no longer need to guess why a Magento coupon code is not working or contact your customer service team for an answer! This greatly reduces the time your customer service team spends answering the same questions.

Magento Custom Coupon Extension Frequently Asked Questions
Please check the user guide to learn more about this extension.
How would this extension improve user experience?
People like to be well informed. When coupons fail to apply successfully, instead of getting a default “coupon could not be applied” message, they will get a message that explains what they need to do next.
Perhaps the code was entered incorrectly, or possibly they were not logged in and therefore the system could not recognize them as eligible for a discount. If they know what’s going on they are more likely to buy.
Contact our out Sales Team to try out the demo and see for yourself the difference the Custom Coupon Error Message extension can make for your store.
Can I create custom coupon code error messages for a specific coupon?
Yes. Custom coupon code error messages can be created individually for each coupon when they’re created. This is useful in cases when you’re using coupons in multiple languages, or if the coupon in intended for a very specific type of audience i.e. formal vs. informal
Alternatively, you can also apply your error messages globally on all coupons.
See this Help article for more details
How does the coupon error tracking work?
The extension comes with a built in coupon error tracking system that lists all coupon error scenarios, including reports on why they occurred and whether or not they ended up being used.
This can give you an idea of what are the most common errors that customers face when attempting to avail of discount codes and can help you to repair annoying situations for customers, making your site more user friendly.
To learn more about Error Tracking with the Custom Coupon Error Message extension see this Help Article.
Can I create multiple error messages for my coupons?
Yes. You can set a different error message for each coupon error scenario, meaning that instead of the default “coupon could not be applied”, you can explain why it could not be applied, for example: “Wrong coupon code entered” or “You must be logged in to use this coupon”.
Read more about Creating Coupon error Messages in this Help Article.
