Things to keep in mind when creating your Single-use coupon codes:

  • Coupon name - Make it something that is easy to identify later.

  • Coupon prefix - 3 characters that will lead every coupon.

    • PostPilot will auto-generate the rest of the coupon for you.

  • Discount Type - Select from: Fixed amount, Percentage, or Free Shipping.

  • Minimum Purchase - Amount before taxes and shipping.

  • Activation Date - When your coupon will be activated on your site.

Generating coupon codes manually for One-Off Campaigns

PostPilot generates coupon codes for Automated Campaigns and Flows automatically, but if you plan to use your codes in One-Off Campaigns, you must manually generate coupon codes. 

Once you create the parameters for your coupon, specify the number of coupon codes that you want to generate. 

This must be done before you send your One-Off Campaign. 

Please check this list before you launch your One-Off Campaigns:

  • At minimum, you must generate as many coupon codes as expected recipients.
  • This means that if you generate fewer codes than the number of estimated recipients, your campaign will not send to all recipients.
  • If the actual number of recipients for your One-Off Campaign is greater than the number of codes you generate at send time, the extra recipients will be skipped and will not receive a card.
  • If you generate a large number of codes, allow time between your campaign's desired send time and when you create the codes. 
    • Generating a large number of coupon codes may take up to several hours. 

You can view all of your coupons from the Coupon List.
