Each coupon has the following attributes:

For one-time coupons, you should probably use random values or the coupons generated by your system.
For reusable coupons, feel free to add any value you like.

|coupon||The coupon value.|
|owner||Can be referrer or referred.|

Coupons in Email Messages
You can use freely the coupons into the email messages, both subject and body. Make sure you use the following variable:
To denote the coupon value.
NOTE: Be careful when you insert variables and add format to them. The variable should be whole as a string in the HTML in order to be replaced properly. Spaces or HTML elements like <span> in between the characters will prevent value replacing.
Keep note that if there are no available coupons to be used, and the referrer or the referred email contents require a coupon, the campaign will not be displayed at all.
