3. Select ‘Discount Type’ to ‘Fixed Cart Discount’

Select the ‘Discount Type’ from the given options to the ‘Fixed Cart Discount.’ We will choose this because we will not offer a percentage discount. 

4. Click on the Publish Button

Click on the ‘Publish’ button to publish the new coupon code. Don’t tell your buyers about this code now because it won’t work currently, as we want it to. 

3. Navigate to WooCommerce Tax Exempt Plugin’s General Setting

Look for the ‘Woosuite’ option in the right sidebar of your WordPress toolbar. Then, click on the ‘Tax Exemption Rules’ option.

In the WordPress Admin Dashboard: Navigate to the Woosuite Submenu > Click on the Tax-Exemption Rules option.

3. Select ‘Coupons’ from the Given Options

Under the ‘Conditions’ section, select ‘Coupons’ from the given options. So, select ‘Coupons.’
