    Hi, does the use of the new convert tool for coupons is mandatory? Or I can leave it as is?(my store is small) I’ve tried 8.7rc and not using the conversion tool still works and coupons applied still works, same with converting but i don’t know if there is a problem using it with my payment gateway(apparently not the final price is processed ok if i convert or not)…any help is appreciated

      Hi, converting existing coupon data is not mandatory, but any newly created coupon data will have the new format.

  3. I have an error at checkout, a field is appearing to add a credit card (which is not from the store).

      Hey Bruno! I recommend asking your question in the WooCommerce Community Slack, since it might get lost here. You can join at https://woocommerce.com/community-slack/
