Create standalone code for multi-use
In this article, we're going to create a standalone code for multi-use. Let's go through the Campaign Manager to see the setup step-by-step.
This article assumes you have already familiarized yourself with the Coupons Ultimate Guide.
- Open the Campaign Manager
- Define code details
- Add time limits (optional)
- Set the discount type & value
- Define validation rules
- Add metadata (optional)
Open the Campaign Manager
To start creating a standalone code, run the Campaign Manager with the Plus.
Next, choose Discount coupons as your campaign type.
Define code details
Choose standalone code to create a single code instead of a campaign of unique codes (bulk codes).
Provide additional information on the voucher using category and description (optional). Categories group your vouchers to easily find and track them in the future.
Set code redemption limit. The redemption limit is set to unlimited by default. However, you may limit the redemptions to a particular number using the Code redemption limit field.
Define the code or generate a random one using the arrow.
Go to the Next step.
Set timeframe (optional)
In the second step define optional time limits on your public code:
- Start and end date.
- Particular validity timeframe (for example, only for 3 hours every day).
- Particular days only (for example, only Wednesdays).
Keep in mind that if you don't set the end date, your code will be valid indefinitely. You can modify the expiration date after the campaign is on. Read more about time-related limits.
Choose the discount type and value
In the 3rd step, choose the discount type and define its value. Read more in The Complete Discounts Guide.
You can offer your customers different discount types and by using discount effects, decide how the discount will be applied to the order:
- Whole cart - discount is applied to the total order amount.
- Items - discount is applied to items specified by validation rules (discounted products or product metadata satisfy), each item is discounted equally.
- Order items proportionally to their amount or quantity - discount is divided and applied to items specified by validation rules (discounted products or product metadata satisfy), each item is discounted proportionally to its share in the total discounted products amount or proportionally to its quantity.
Define validation rules
When the discount is already set, you can assign desired validation rules (optional) to your code and design proper redemption circumstances.
Create new validation rules or choose from the already existing set of rules.
When you click Create validation rule, you'll see a basic validation rules builder. If you need more validation rules, switch to Advanced rules builder.
The set up of these limitations is optional but is useful to secure code redemptions. For instance, you might launch a public code that is valid only for orders above $200 or/and that is redeemable only once per customer. Read more about validation.
The details of building the validation rules are described in this guide.
The last step enables you to add additional information as metadata. Read more about metadata.
When ready, go to the Next step.
In the last stage of the campaign creation, you are going to see the summary of your code – you can make changes and edit the code before making it go live.
When the code is ready, save it and the app will generate a standalone voucher. You'll be directed to the code dashboard.
