By Default Magento Gives us the functionality to create a coupon for cart(Cart Rule) and for catalog (Catalog Rule). But What if we want to create a coupon dynamically as per our conditions without going to admin section.
Example: if we want to create a functionality to send a coupon code on some condition to a customer or if we want to send a gift card value as a coupon code to other customers.
There are also many Extensions available which are performing the same custom coupon code part. Here you can check that too.
