Automatic Coupons For A Specific Role

Automatic Coupons are a convenient way to provide a discount for a group of people within a certain role without having to give out multiple coupon codes or requiring the user to enter a code each time. For the example below we are creating a ‘Automatic Coupon’ for people with the role of ‘Staff Member’.

Gift Cards

You will need to request that ABA enable the ‘Gift Card’ module for you. You may do so by navigating to: Store > Configuration > Account Information and Preferences > Store Features scrolling to the ECOMMERCE section - check mark ‘Givex Gift Card*’ under ‘Enable This Feature’ and click the ‘Send request to ABA’ button.

Custom Products

When you first begin working with your IndieCommerce website you will have a single custom product class created by default called ‘ABA Product’. 'ABA Product' class covers ABA supplied books. However, you most likely sell other products in store and will wish to online as well. Product classes are the starting point for organizing those other items for sale as it’s going to contain all the information needed to sell and ship products on your website.

Google Analytics

We encourage you to set up your own Google Analytics account. You will need to set up the account with Google first, and then configure your site to add the new tracking account, by using the instructions below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have a pre-existing Google Analytics account you will need to obtain your existing Tracking ID and then jump to step 3.
