Subscription discounts

You can set a discount by setting the Stripe Coupon lookup field on the Subscription before pushing the Subscription to Stripe. After this, the discount is applied to the Invoices, and the Stripe Coupon lookup field is set on the Invoice records.

Customer discount

You can add a discount for a Customer. In this case, the discount will be added for every Invoice for the customer, generated from Subscriptions. To set a discount for a Customer, set the Stripe Coupon lookup field on the Stripe Customer record.

If you set the Stripe User Coupon lookup field to null (remove the value and save), the discount is no longer applied.

In order to do so, go to the Stripe Coupon record and click the 'Delete From Stripe' button. After this, you if the Deleted from Stripe checkbox is checked, the Stripe Coupon was deleted from Stripe.
