The difference between single-use and multi-use coupons is one of the most frequently asked questions. I'll carefully explain the difference between single-use and multi-use coupons in this article.

1. Single-use coupons
Digital single-use coupons are, like the name already reveals, meant for single use only. People can only use it one time.

This is how a single-use coupon URL looks: (It's just an example of the URL format)
https://digicpn.com/p/1a2b3c/d7b6ysd9kbjg9pykiy3qb -> the suffix is already defined. Coupon is only accessible with this URL.

Single-use is only available in the silver and gold plan.

Advantages:
People can only use the coupon if they have the entire access URL. If they don't, they can't access your coupon.
People can share the coupon with others, but the coupon can only be used once. If someone shares his coupon with a friend, only one of them can actually use it.
Multi-use coupons rely on cookies while a single-use coupon is ONLY accessible through the right URL

The name may fool you. Those coupons are also meant for single-use but aren't a 100% airtight. Those 'multi-use' coupons rely on a cookie so people could be able to falsify.

This is how a multi-use coupon URL looks: (It's just an example of the URL format)
https://digicpn.com/p/1a2b3c/123458abcdef -> the last part is uniquely generated for every user.
