How to create promo codes using rules

in Rules Tags: Edit RulesRules List

Using rules, you can create promotional codes to offer discounts and make many other adjustments.

For example, with the Promo Code condition and the Day of the Week condition, you can create a promo code that only works on Fridays. With the Set All Prices actions, you could decrease price points by 20%. Customers who use the promo code on a Friday will then get 20% off their order.

To use the Promo Code condition in a rule, follow these steps:

1. Navigate to Inventory > Rules in the main menu.

2. Click Create Rule.

6. Enter a unique code for your promo code—this is the code you give your customers.

7. Add any further conditions and actions the rule should have. Generally promo codes are used to offer discounts, in which case you can use the Set All Prices action to change prices across the board, or the Set Each Price action to change a specific tier. You may also want to limit the promo code to specific inventory, dates ranges for use, or booking date ranges.

8. Click Create Rule.
