From time to time you may want to give a product away as a promotion. This is how to create a coupon for a free product.
In the WordPress Dashboard, on the PRODUCTS menu select COUPONS
Add the coupon for your product using the new coupon form:
Use a unique coupon code, in the example we use “FreeGift”
Set the discount amount to 100%, this will reduce the cart sub-total by the value of the product being given away
Set a start and end date
DO NOT CHECK “This coupon affects each product at checkout”, if you check this the shopper will get the whole cart for free 🙁
In Conditions select “Item Name” and “Is Equal To” and enter the name of the product you are giving away.
