Create or update a coupon rule.
Coupon rule is like the “blueprint” or “type” of a printed coupon (that is issued from POS and handed to a customer). The “blueprint” specifies in what circumstances the coupons will be printed from POS, and what promotion will apply when customer returns with the coupon — ie., what discount or extra value it effectively carries.
A coupon rule should be associated with a sales promotion (see getCampaigns).
In order for the customer to use those discounts, you need to issue the customer a coupon with an unique serial number (see getIssuedCoupons, saveIssuedCoupon). When customer returns with the coupon code, it has to be scanned at the POS. Scanning redeems the coupon, invokes the promotion associated with it, and gives customer a discount.
To retrieve coupon rules, see getCoupons.
