Projects:DigitalCoupons/User Guide



The following document aims to be a user guide of the Digital Coupons for Retail module.

Digital Coupons are coupons that can be accepted in Web POS as a payment method. These coupons include the following information: Issuing company code, coupon number, expiration date and amount.

These coupons can be used to pay a positive ticket, but cannot be used to pay a returned (or negative) ticket.
