Coupon App – August 2013

We are excited to announce the Coupon app launch. Our Coupon app is a simple way to give your customers offers that directly impact your sales. Like all our other apps Coupons are easy to set-up, customize, distribute, track, work great on mobile and can be published to Facebook or a microsite.

This app allows you to create three types of coupons:
1. Single Coupon Code – These are great for online coupons. For example, “Enter “SantaRules” at checkout to receive 20% off your purchase.”
2. Unique Coupon Codes – These allow you to distribute a unique coupon code to every user. This is great for limiting redemption and better tracking specific usage.
3. Offer Only – These don’t require a coupon code and allow for the widest distribution. An example is "By one Bagel, Get one FREE."

To create Coupon, select "Create New" from the Campaigns tab.  In Coupon App, click "Create."


Under Details tab you can mention Title, Sponsor Name, Description and set the Start and End dates with Time Zone.
