Bulk Create Coupons
Go To ADMIN – SALES – COUPONS
The Bulk Insert coupon option allows you to create any number of Coupon Codes with the same information. This feature is valuable for large marketing campaigns to save making each code individually – if you need or want separate codes for every user that redeems. For example a Groupon campaign, you can create 10,000 codes with the same variables that can be given to 10,000 different users. * You could also create a single coupon that can be used 10,000 times, 1 time per user. You decide what is best for your application, or contact us for suggestions.
Special Instructions: Click BULK INSERT and enter the details about your coupon variables (details in next section), then click SAVE. If successful, the screen will refresh showing all the coupon codes you just made (example pic below). Click EXPORT to download all codes to a CSV file. If you want all coupon codes downloaded to a CSV file, you Must EXPORT your codes here. This is the only opportunity to export.
