Pick a winner based on location

Dan May 07, 2018 07:29PM PDT

I am setting up a sweepstake competition on Facebook, and promoting it to users in Australia. One of the other prizes is a Google Home Mini (I am happy to send this anywhere in Australia to whoever wins it), but one of the other prizes being a gift voucher for the company's services. The company offers a mobile service, operating only in the Gold Coast and Tweed Heads areas of Australia.

Obviously there is no point selecting a winner for this prize who lives outside of this region. In anticipation of this, I have added a required field for people to submit their postcode when entering.

It's the first time I'm using WooBox, so I'm wondering if there is a way to select a winner at random who lives within our service area? Thanks for your input!

Hi Dan,

We do not have a way to pick a winner based on a region or on how they answered a specific form field. My suggestion would be to export your entries at the end and it’ll open into a excel sheet. From there you can sort the column with the region field and delete all those who aren’t in the region. (You can always re-export, or you can save two separate files so you can keep all of your data).

Next you can use http://random.org to pick a winner from your spreadsheet.

I hope that is a useful work around. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
