Solution

Coupon management system is for consumer user to search coupons easily and print the same and business user who can create the coupons and provide them on the site for a large number of users.

We created two separate panels of the site – one for public use for the web world and other for site owner, so site can be managed easily. Business user can sign up with the site and after paying simple subscription can make their coupons and make them available to print for large audience of web world. Site´s consumers can search the coupons by various criteria´s and print them online after signing up in the site. Site user can also make the businesses their favorites and accordingly they will get new coupon and news instantly on their mails.

Business users can pay online for the subscription amount. As soon as the payment confirmation is done, they can start making the coupons. They can maintain their own account/profile by uploading business videos, photos, email list to send newsletters, etc.

Third type of user is an affiliated user. These users can register in the site and after registering will generate a link which would be mailed by system. If any business user is registered using affiliate link then that user will get commission for the same.

Site owner (Admin) can manage the site contents, users, coupons statistics, IP addresses of the user, subscription plan for business user management, business categories management and many other modules, which can be helpful for admin to manage the site.

Consumers can do two types of search. They can either search businesses using zip code, business name, and search in alphabetical order, or use second type of search for coupons that can be done using zip code, category and they can browse by active coupon.

Created a separate help section which will provide help to business user, consumer and the visitor that how to visit the site and get familiar to it.
