VoucherPress – a WordPress plugin for creating downloadable, printable vouchers

Thanks for using VoucherPress. It’s great to see so many people creating vouchers for all kinds of business. From pizza joints to jewellers, cleaning companies to sports clubs – you’ve created thousands of vouchers, and I’m really proud to have created something which has been useful to so many people.

As I work on the next version of VoucherPress it would be really helpful if you could fill in this short survey. Many thanks for your time.

Have you ever wanted to give away vouchers, tickets, coupons or tokens on your website? If so this plugin is for you. You can create a voucher with whatever text you want, choosing the layout and font from a range of templates (you can also add your own templates). Vouchers can then be viewed, downloaded and printed from a specified URL.

There are shortcodes to add a link to a particular voucher, to show an unordered list of all your vouchers, or to show the registration for to request a restricted voucher.

You can require visitors to provide their name and email address to get a voucher. If an email address is required an email is sent to the address with a link to the voucher URL. Each voucher has a unique code, and vouchers that have an email address associated with them can only be used once, so once a registration-required voucher is downloaded it can’t be downloaded again.

Installation

The plugin should be placed in your /wp-content/plugins/ directory and activated in the plugin administration screen. The plugin is quite large as it includes the TCPDF class for creating the PDF file.

FAQ

Q. My voucher PDF files are corrupted. Why?
A. This is normally because PHP isn’t given enough memory to create print-resolution PDF files. If you open one of your corrupted PDF files in a text editor it will say something like this:

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 31981568) (tried to allocate 456135 bytes) in
/some/thing/here/wp-content/plugins/voucherpress/tcpdf/tcpdf.php

Speak to your hosts or system administrator to give PHP more memory. I’m also working on a way for VoucherPress itself to work around this problem.

Q. Why is the plugin so big? It’s over 20 MB!
A. I know, and I’m sorry, but the TCPDF sytem which generates the PDF documents is pretty big. And there’s 40+ default layout templates which aren’t small either.

Q. Why did you write this plugin?
A. I’m not sure. It seemed like a good idea, and gave me opportunity to learn a little bit about the TCPDF class.

Q. Does this plugin work with any e-commerce plugins?
A. Not at the moment, but I’m sure it could if those e-commerce plugin developers want to get in touch.

Q. Can I add my own codes, for example if I want to give away numbered coupons?
A. Yes, you can add your own codes for any voucher. When people download the voucher they will be given one of your codes (in the same order you entered them). Once one of your codes is used on a voucher it can’t be used again.
