Coupons

I have a client who promotes food products sold in stores through his website.
He wants to place discount coupons on the website so that people can print a coupon and bring it to a store to get a discounted price.
Do any of the HikaShop versions offer the ability to promote and track coupons?
If so, can the coupon function be used independent of the shopping cart?
(He doesn't sell the products through the website so he doesn't need the shopping cart.)

You can manage the coupons on the back end but there is no interface on the front end in order to display listings of coupons.
You could always build it if you know PHP or hav someone do it for you but otherwise, you won't be able to do that.

I have a friend who is good at PHP and could create the front end interface for me.
Questions:
1)How does HikaShop manage coupons on the back end...what can it do?
2)I won't need to use the shopping cart features.
Once I create the interface on the front end, can I manage the coupons independent of the shopping cart?
3)What version(s) of HikaShop would allow me to manage coupons?

1. You can look at that via the menu Components->HikaShop->Discounts
There, you will see the listing of discounts and coupons. You can create new ones, edit them, delete them.

2. Sure

3. You can manage coupons in all the versions of HikaShop. In the commercial editions, you will get extra features related to the restrictions: You will be able to restrict the coupons to one or several groups of users, have quota, etc... However, since you're not planning on using the cart part of HikaShop, these features won't be useful to you...
