Coupons can be added to the subscription in your Chargebee

There are three scenarios where you can add the coupon:

  • When creating a new subscription

    Go to the Subscription Info section in the ‘Create Subscription' page, select a plan using Add Plan and you will find the option to Add Coupon/Coupon Code.  

  • When changing an existing subscription 

     You will find the option on the Change Subscription page as 'Add coupon' 

  • For an existing subscription from the action panel

    Go to the Subscription page and find the Add Coupon option on the Action Panel. This can be added at any point of the billing cycle. 

  • You can add Coupons to an existing subscription using API.  For reference, the API is as follows https://{site}{subscription_id}/, and you can add the Coupon attributes towards the end of the API as per your need.
