How can the coupons be validated? Show me all available validation methods?

At the moment we have 6 different methods to validate a coupon.
You can use 1 method or combine multiple methods for each coupon.


1. On mobile device


Validate the coupon on the customer's device either by entering a password or simply pressing a 'redeem' button without password.
(This option does not work for printable coupons.)




2. QR code validation


Every mobile device (phone or tablet) with a camera and QR scanner can be used as a validation system. At validation, the cashier scans the validation QR Code during checkout and enters the validation password.




3. Validation Widget/App



We offer a validation widget and validation app to validate coupons. Our widget runs on any device with an internet browser and connection. Our app can be downloaded in the app stores.


When you are using the validation widget our coupon will display a unique 6 digit validation code on the validation page which you can enter in the validation app/widget. Our validation widget also allows you to save extra personal data from your customer like the 'money spent' value.

4. Barcodes / own validation codes


You can import and use your own validation codes. Our system will automatically assign one of your unique validation codes for every distributed coupon.

For example if you work with your own POS system or with a coupon clearing house you can import those unique validation barcodes in our platform.

We support all popular barcode formats.




5. Physical Stamps


With the physical stamp you can just stamp the smartphone screen to validate the coupon or add a loyalty stamp. Each Stamp has multi touch points. That can be individually identified when it is stamped on screen of the smart phone.
To get a quote please contact our sales department.

Here is a video to see how it works to validate the customer's coupon:




6. API integration


You can use our API & webhooks to develop your own validation process.
For example an embedded solution in your backoffice or CRM or POS devices.
You can find the api manual here: https://www.coupontools.com/en/api-and-webhooks&action=updatesession
With the API you can also store additional information like 'money spent', cashier name, cashier device, location etc.
