How to import or generate promo codes for a Coupon Directory

It is possible to require a promo code for users registering themselves for your coupon directory.

This feature is on request! Get in touch with support to get access to the promo codes system for the coupon directory.

What is a promo code? It's a code that the user needs to fill in for access to your directory. Without the code or when entered a false code, access to the directory is denied. It is possible to import or generate up to 50 000 unique promo codes!

How to import my own promocodes?

Open your coupon directory builder.
Enable user registration at the 'Auth (1)' tab and enable 'Require authentication (2)'.

Now, navigate to the 'Payments (3)' tab. First, allow the payment option (4). Then, open the dropdownmenu 'Payment methods (5)' and enable the feature Promo codes (6). Click on 'Manage promo codes (7)'.

The page below opens. There are two ways to use promo codes in your directory: import a .txt-file (1) or auto-generate them via our system (2).

1. Import a .txt file.

First create a .txt file with the promo codes. Keep in mind to set up random promo codes and to have each code start on a new line. Otherwise, it won't work properly.

Now, let's upload the file you just created. Hit 'select file' (1), select the .txt file and proceed (2). After you hit proceed, the promo codes are seamlessly imported.

Now, let's upload the file you just created. Click on the paperclip to select the .txt-file (1) and then click on 'Import promo codes (2).

2. Auto-generated by our system

Another option is to auto-generate promo codes using our system. This way, you're already certain of random promo codes.

1) Enter how many unique promo codes you need.
2) Select if the codes should be alphabetic, numeric or alphanumeric.
3) Enter how many characters the code should consist of.
4) Click on 'Generate codes'.

After you hit import or generate, the codes will be added to the promo codes overview. This is what my example looks like:

1) .txt file imported promo codes
2) Auto-generated promo codes.
