  • Restrict Email option could be used to allow the discount only if the purchase is made for the same email id that the user has logged on at MailChimp.

    The Restrict Email feature will determine whether or not the subscriber email address in MailChimp and the email address used to complete the purchase are the same. If they do not match, the user will be unable to redeem the coupon.

    Moreover, this is useful when people want to fool the system by using multiple temporary emails in order to obtain multiple discount coupons to use on their actual account. And the coupon code will not be activated during the purchase if the email addresses are not the same.
