Within our coupon system, we've introduced Smart Coupon Management and a Prioritized Discounts system. This distinction helps differentiate between standard coupons and those associated with bank offers. This enhancement allows us to deliver coupon benefits, such as a 30% discount or a flat Rs 300 discount, through our API.
The API dynamically calculates and displays savings for each coupon based on the total value of items in the shopping cart. Furthermore, our system ensures a smooth and optimized discount application process by automatically prioritizing and applying the most relevant coupons at the top, streamlining the user experience.
