How to Create a Deal

Last Updated: May 16, 2017 04:22PM PDT
First, click "Create A New Offer" and select Deal.

You'll be taken to the Edit tab to choose the general settings for your deal. Set up your title, instructions, price, entry restrictions, and voucher options. You can also enable the Fangate page here. Choose how long your deal will run, how many vouchers (deals) are available, how many deals a user can redeem, and how old a user needs to be to participate. You can also setup how vouchers will work and when they expire.

At the bottom, you may also notice the "Admin-only mode" switch. Leave your promotion in admin-only mode until you are ready for it to go live. Click "Save."

You can further customize what your deal page looks like by clicking on the Customize tab. On this page, you can upload images for your offer's pages, or code them with HTML. After your content looks the way you want, you can also opt to change the way the buttons look by clicking Advanced, then Buttons.


Now, let's click on Form Fields. This is where you can choose what data you want to collect from a user in order for them to participate. There are many fields in the dropdown menu to choose from, and they are all customizable. Under Advanced -> Facebook Auth Dialog, you'll see options that will require Facebook Authorization Dialog (if you have enabled any). This means users will be prompted by Facebook to give permission in order to share their data (you can also access this section by clicking on this button from the Overview screen):
Overview - Facebook Auth Dialog 

To accept payment, you will need to connect your PayPal account by going to the Business Settings section and clicking External Connections in the left navigation. Then, enter your PayPal account email address and save the change.

Finally, you'll need to click Facebook Page Tab, where you'll choose your tab name and install the tab. 

Your Deal is ready to go! You can take your promotion out of admin-only mode in the Edit section and start collecting entries. You do have additional options you can play with under the Language, Sharing, and Customize tabs, but this is enough to get you started. 

You can also enable Automatic Email Sending (this will send the entrant a link to their voucher) in the Emails section.
