WooCommerce URL Coupons

https://www.skyverge.com/product/woocommerce-url-coupons/

Running a banner promotion or discount for an item? Customers tend to look at banners and forget coupon codes (hey, we’ve all done it!). No more! By using a unique URL with WooCommerce URL Coupons, you can use a coupon code that automatically applies a discount and (optionally) adds products to the customer’s shopping cart. This extension also allows you to manage when coupons are valid (for example, exclude sale items or prohibit using multiple offers), as well as set coupon minimum amounts, expiration dates, or usage limits. This is a premium add-on, it’s $49 and well worth it!
