WooCommerce Group Coupons Plugin It is very convenient to have discounts applied automatically for certain user groups. This covers any cases ranging from applying a promotional discount automatically to any registered user, to granting automatic discounts to specific user groups like distributors, volume clients, etc. It can also be combined with another features provided by this extension to assure that coupons can only be used by certain groups.

The second new subsection related to roles allows to limit the coupon to be used only by users that have one ore more roles.
New Coupon Settings for Groups
The Groups subsection of the settings under Coupon data allows to limit the coupon to groups, apply it automatically to groups and to exclude certain groups from using it. You can access these sections when you add a new coupon or edit an existing coupon.
Groups – limit the coupon to group members
Only members of the selected groups will be allowed to use the coupon. If no group is selected, the coupon is not restricted to any group members.
Automatic application – apply the coupon to group members automatically
The coupon will be applied automatically to members of any of the selected groups.
It’s important to note that this does not limit the coupon to group members, anyone could use the coupon – it will just not be applied to anyone automatically. If the coupon should only be available to members of the selected groups, you must also limit the coupon to these groups.
Exclude Groups – exclude group members from using this coupon
Members of the groups chosen here will not be allowed to use the coupon.
New Coupon Settings for Roles
The Roles subsection of the settings under Coupon data allows to limit the coupon to certain roles. You can access this section when you add a new coupon or edit an existing coupon.
Roles – limit the coupon to roles
Only users who have one of the selected roles will be allowed to use the coupon. If no role is selected, the coupon is not restricted to any roles.

If you want several roles to be able to use the coupon, you must check each role here.

The following examples illustrate some cases and configurations where a coupon is limited or applied automatically based on groups or roles.
If you are not familiar with the Groups membership plugin yet, we recommend to review its documentation pages where you can quickly learn how to create a group and assign users to it. In the following examples, we will be using several groups with intuitive names. Please note that the Registered group already exists when you install the Groups membership plugin and that all users belong to it.
A restricted Coupon for Registered Users
This example shows the settings used for a coupon that is limited to registered users and applied automatically for them. This means that the coupon will be applied automatically for any existing user account, without the need for the customer to input the coupon code at checkout explicitly. In this example, we also exclude any member of the Test group from using the coupon.
