Coupon Functionality

Coupons are a great way to reward your fans or newsletter subscribers with discounts and freebies. Here are some different options for code distribution and redemption in your Coupon experience:

Voucher Expiration Type

In the Expiration Date section under the Settings tab, you can choose if the vouchers will expire on a specific date, or a relative number of days from when the voucher was awarded:

Code distribution

You can also choose between these 3 options for distributing voucher codes:

1. Automatically generate codes. This option will randomly generate unique voucher codes on each coupon awarded.

coupon - randomly generate codes
2. Upload a list of custom codes. If you have a POS system that can generate and later accept/redeem custom codes, you can upload a list of custom codes to be distributed on your vouchers. You can add one code per line, or upload a text/CSV file of the codes.

coupon - custom codes

3. Use same code for all coupons. This option allows you to enter a single code that will be distributed on all vouchers. After selecting this option, enter the static code in the field.

Coupon - same code on all vouchers

QR code for redemption

Click the Styles tab while you have the Voucher element selected in the Design section to choose “QR code” from the Element Templates drop-down. This will display a QR code on each voucher that the retailer can scan (or tap, on a mobile device) to mark the voucher as “redeemed” so it cannot be used again. *You can choose “Code only” for just the voucher code to display without the QR code or expiration date.

Limit total number of vouchers

If you’re using one static code or letting the campaign randomly generate codes, you can limit the number of available vouchers in the Settings tab under Limit Availability:

Coupon - limit availability

Voucher utility bar

By default, the voucher utility bar will display an “Email” and “Print” button (which you can disable). If you would like to drive entrants to an online store to redeem their code, select the voucher utility bar element in the Design tab and click Settings. Then enable the “Redeem button” and enter the destination URL. This way, entrants can click that button and go directly to your e-commerce site to make a purchase and enter their coupon code.
