Automatic Coupons
You can set the value of the discount that a coupon will carry, after this whenever any affiliate registers, they will be assigned a coupon code.

Additionally, you also have options to set up usage limits for coupon codes:

Limit to one use per customer

The coupon code assigned to the affiliate can only be used once per customer. If a customer tries to use this coupon code, to order again, the coupon code will not work. This is useful in bringing over new customers to your store, where they can use the coupon code to purchase their first order, after which they will have to purchase the product in your store at the full price.
For example, since coupon codes do eat into your margins and are flat-out discounts that you are providing to first-time customers, you have an option to limit the use of a coupon code to one per customer.

Limit the number of times this discount can be used in total

This option lets you set the total number of times a coupon code assigned to an affiliate can be used. This is helpful when you want a customer to purchase multiple products from your store over time, this helps potential customers purchase more products.
For example, in the case of influencers who share coupon codes assigned to them with thousands of their followers, it is useful in setting up an appropriate number of uses for a coupon code. Since the coupon code will be used by many of the followers to make purchases, it can be assigned a larger limit to accommodate several purchases. This helps in bringing a higher number of customers to your store to make a purchase.

Minimum Order Value

It is the minimum cart value that needs to be met before the coupon can get applied to avail of the discount. Setting up a minimum value is useful, since you may have products that are low in price (usually shipping costs get added to them or are included in their price). It is, therefore, useful to set a minimum order value accordingly.
For example, setting up a minimum order value is useful, when discount codes can be applied to products that are priced low, then shipping makes them a loss for you, so you can set up a minimum order value, this will also lead to higher-value sales.

Limit discounts to products

This option lets you limit the discounts provided by coupon codes to specific products in your store. This is an option that can be used to limit coupon codes on products that are older or have to be cleared from your inventory. Generally, newer products are exempted from coupon code usage.
For example, limiting the use of coupons to products, lets you limit the usage of coupons to specific products, you can keep products such as newer collections coming in as exempt from the discount codes.

In this way, you can easily set up coupon codes for your affiliates to promote your products more effectively.
