In this article, we’ll go through the 3 easy steps to categorize coupons in WooCommerce so you can start organizing your coupons more efficiently. We’ll also cover the best plugin to help you organize your coupons much easier. Let’s get started!
Why You Need To Categorize Coupons
It can be quite overwhelming to manage a large number of coupons in your WooCommerce store. As the business expands, you can build up a backlog of unused coupons, seasonal discounts, or special promotions that are no longer applicable.
This messy and chaotic structure can make it difficult to keep track of your coupons and hamper your ability to efficiently manage and evaluate your coupon usage data.
Imagine this: you have HUNDREDS of coupons stacked up in your WooCommerce store and you have no idea how to manage them all. It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack, right?
This is primarily why coupon categorization is helpful.
By categorizing your coupons, you can conveniently identify and manage them while also offering targeted discounts to specific customer segments. It also provides a sense of organization to your store, making it appear more professional and user-friendly.
In WooCommerce, there is no built-in way to categorize your coupons, which can make it difficult to manage them efficiently. Fortunately, we have added a feature to Advanced Coupons that allow you to categorize your coupons, and it’s one of the most valuable features of the plugin!

Step 2: Assign coupons to categories
This is where you can get really organized and start assigning categories to your coupons. Simply select the category or categories that apply to the coupon you’re editing and save your changes.
For example, if you have a coupon that offers free shipping, you might want to assign it to the “Shipping Offers” category. Or if you have a coupon that’s part of a monthly promotion, you could assign it to the “Monthly Specials” category:
By assigning categories to your coupons, you can easily filter and search for specific coupons when you need to manage them. It’s a small step that can save you a lot of time and hassle in the long run.
Step 3: Filter the list of coupons by coupon category
After you have assigned your coupons to their respective categories, you can easily filter your coupon list by the category filter selector located at the top of your coupon list view:
This will allow you to easily view and manage coupons that fall under a particular category, making it a breeze to manage a large number of coupons.
