Better Coupon

Overview

Let’s picture this scenario: Store owners desire to generate a one-time use coupon for a customer, but it takes at least 5 minutes to make it manually? Or take another look at this case: the coupon codes generated in Magento 2 do not with the current discount program, either they can’t import their pre-made coupon codes into Magento 2 system. Time-consuming tasks are coming up more, you have no idea how to give the applied coupon checkout link to customers so that they don’t need to ask and enter the coupon every time they come to your store?

All disturbing issues now can be remedied by only one proficient plugin.
