Welcome to the documentation for the Discounts For SureCart plugin by SurelyWP!


This plugin enables discount features on your SureCart store to schedule multiple product or storewide discounts, set percentage or fixed automatic discounts, display coupon codes on product pages, and display optional countdown timers.

On this page, you will find all the steps you need to set up and use our plugin. The steps below provide instructions about the installation and setup process, as well as additional resources that may be helpful.

1. Install & Setup SureCart

Our Discounts For SureCart plugin is a 3rd party addon for SureCart, so having an existing SureCart store with their plugin installed, active, and set up is a prerequisite to using our product.

DISCLOSURE: The link to SureCart is an “affiliate link” which means if you click on the link and purchase anything, we will receive a commission.

2. Download The Plugin From Your Customer Dashboard

NOTE: If you have not yet purchased the Discounts For SureCart plugin, you will need to do that now before continuing.

After completing the purchase, the next step is to download the WordPress plugin:

  1. Log into your Customer Dashboard on our website.
  2. Click the “Downloads” tab.
  3. Click on the Discounts For SureCart file.
  4. Click the “Download” button on the .zip file.
  5. Save the file to your computer.

NOTE: Some Apple computers automatically extract .zip files, so be sure to disable that feature when downloading the plugin file.

3. Install The Plugin On Your Website

Now you are ready to install the Discounts For SureCart plugin. Installing our plugin works the same as installing any other WordPress plugin.

  1. Log in to your WordPress admin dashboard. This is typically accessed by adding “/wp-admin” to the end of your website’s URL (e.g.,
  2. Once logged in, navigate to the “Plugins” section in the left-hand menu of the dashboard.
  3. Click on the “Plugins” option to open the plugins page.
  4. On the plugins page, click on the “Add New” button at the top of the screen.
  5. You will now be on the “Add Plugins” page. Here, click on the “Upload Plugin” button located at the top of the screen.
  6. You will be prompted to choose a file. Click on the “Choose File” button and locate the plugin file (.zip format) on your computer. Select the file and click the “Open” button.
  7. After selecting the plugin file, click the “Install Now” button to begin the installation process.
  8. WordPress will now upload and install the plugin from the uploaded file. Once the installation is complete, you will see a success message.
  9. After installation, click the “Activate Plugin” button to activate the plugin.

When you activate the plugin, you will be redirected to an overview screen of the Discounts For SureCart addon. This is a unified interface for all of our addons, so any additional addon that you install from our SurelyWP brand will also appear in this same interface. You can switch installed plugins at the top.

The first thing to do is get familiar with the options available to you. The overview tab does a great job of this, and some of the things mentioned there will be covered in the steps below.

NOTE: The plugin features will not work until you add the license key in step #4.

4. Add Your License Key

The most important step after installing the plugin is to connect and activate your license key. This is needed to enable the plugin features to work.

  1. Log into your Customer Dashboard on our website.
  2. Click on the “Downloads” tab and then click on the Discounts For SureCart download item. You will see the license key here below the download.
  3. Click the “Copy” button to copy the license key to your clipboard.
  4. Go back to your website where you installed the plugin and find the license key settings. To find this screen, look under the SurelyWP menu and click on Discounts and then click the “License Key” menu link.
  5. Paste the license key into the input field, and click the “Activate” button.

5. Adjust The Settings

This plugin includes various settings to enable and adjust features according to your preference. You can access the settings from the Settings tab on the left side of the plugin interface. Each setting contains a clear label and helpful description to make it easy to understand how to use and explain what it does.

Manage And Add New Discounts

When you click on the settings tab, you will see the option to add a new discount. If you already have discounts set up on your site, they will display in a list here for you to edit or delete.

Individual Discount

In the settings for each individual discount, you can set an administrative title to help keep things organized. There is also the option to disable this individual discount. This will keep the discount saved with all the settings in the list of discounts, but it will not be active.

The settings are organized into sections with headings. We recommended getting familiar with how the plugin works by carefully reading each setting description.

7. View The Changelog

You can keep up to date about new features, improvements, and bug fixes that we release by viewing the plugin changelog. You can access the changelog from the Changelog tab on the left side of the plugin interface.

8. Check For Updates

Whenever we release a plugin update with new features, improvements, or bug fixes, you will automatically get a prompt in your WordPress plugin list that an update is available, with an update now button. You can also check for notifications or news in the notifications panel in the top-right corner of the plugin interface.
