    So, catch the last Magefan news and updates!

    With the constant cycle of updates and new releases of our extensions, it should be understood that not every version of Magento 2 platform can remain supported forever. We would like to notify all our customers that Magento v2.2 will no longer be supported starting from January 1, 2022.

  3. How to Apply Coupon Code Automatically in Magento 2?

    Coupons play a vital role in every sale and special offer you provide on your Magento store. They not only improve customers loyalty but boost engagement and make people come for more deals. 

    Even though Magento provides you with the cart price rule or coupon functionality by default, you shouldn't stop looking for more effective ways to apply coupons.

    Usually, when you display discount codes in CMS blocks or add them to banners, customers have to manually type or copy and paste coupon codes into the corresponding field. 

    Wouldn't it be better to apply coupon codes automatically?

    It will reduce the steps required to apply the coupon and increase the chances of people actually applying it.
