Create Generated Coupon Codes
To create generated coupon codes, as with other types of coupons, you will first create a Price Group.
Click the Marketing header on the left side of the page, and then click the Price Groups tab if not already on that tab.
Click Add Price Group, set the eligibility to Coupon Only. Complete the remainder of the Price Group set up.
Then, click the Marketing header on the left side of the page, and then click the Coupons tab. In the Coupons tab, click the Generate button in the upper right corner.
In the box that opens, complete the fields.
- Code: This is the “base” code that you want your customers to enter when they redeem the coupon. For example, if you enter T_Shirt_Promo in the field, and set the number of coupons to 10, the system will create 10 coupons with the naming structure of T_Shirt_PromoXXXXXXXX where the Xs are actually a unique code for each coupon.
- Description: The description you enter in this field will only appear in the admin interface.
- Eligibility: This sets who will get the discount: Specific Customers, All Logged In Customers or All Shoppers.
- # of Coupons: Enter the number of coupon codes you want Miva to generate.
- Not Valid Before/Not Valid After: These two fields let you decide how long the coupon codes will be active.
- Max Use (Total): This is the total number of times you will allow a coupon code to be entered. If you enter “1” in the field, the coupon code can only be used once.
- Max Use (Per Shopper): The total number of times you will allow an individual shopper to use the coupon code. If you enter “1” in this field, each customer can only use the coupon code once.
If you set the Eligibility to “Specific Customers,” you will not set a value in the # of Coupons field. Instead, at the bottom of the box, you will click Select Customers, assign the customers you want, then click OK. When you click the Generate button, the system will create the number of coupon codes to match the number of customers you assigned.
Otherwise, if you didn’t set Eligibility to “Specific Customers,” you will click the Generate button. In the Coupons tab you will see the new coupons generated by the system.
