Using Episerver Commerce it’s possible to offer discounts to customers using the built in discount engine. Discounts can also have a coupon code associated meaning only customers who know that code can get the discount.

On the other hand Episerver Campaign can create, allocate and distribute unique coupon codes to customers.
