You can also add coupon to a category. Just add a new coupon category and select the category. And then publish the coupon.
Now you’ll see two shortcodes in the higher right-hand side corner. One is for full coupon box and another one is just the coupon code. Copy the shortcode.
Now paste the shortcode where you want to add the coupon.
