I want to use my own email or SMS provider/software to distribute the coupons?
I want to use my own SMS provider or software to distribute the coupons?
Yes, if we do not have an integration yet you can still use your own provider to send the coupons by email or SMS.
There are 5 possibilities:
1. distribute multi use coupons
Each coupon has a multi use URL. You can use that URL in your SMS or email body.
It is the same URL for every sms/email.
You cannot track redemptions per phone or email address.
It is not single use. Recipients can share the email or SMS with others.

2. generate unique coupon codes
Go to "integrations" and select "single use codes"
Here you can generate a batch file with for example 10 000 unique coupon URLS.
You can use those URLS in your existing software to send 1 URL to 1 receiver by using merge fields.
3. API integration
With our API you can generate also single use codes.
It allows you to develop your own integration. For each receiver you can generate on-the-fly a single use code and also pass additional information (like name, phone, email etc)
It allows you to track the redemptions per contact.

We have a Zapier integration. Zapier has 2000+ apps built-in which you can connect with Coupontools.
Example: If a new contact was added in one app, send a coupon by email through Coupontools
5. USA & CANADA
Since 2023, SMS marketing in USA & Canada has become restricted, and carriers require a campaign registration because of new CTIA guidelines; As a result, our SMS software is not working anymore in USA & Canada and we cannot provide our customers anymore with an out-of-the-box solution for Toll Free Numbers, Long Numbers and 10DLC numbers.
As a solution we now allow our customers in USA & Canada to integrate their own SMS API with our Coupontools SMS software, so you can use the Coupontools platform to send the messages and your own SMS provider for the best message pricing, delivery & regulation support.
Silver & Gold clients: Setup is free of charge.
Lite & Bronze clients: 75$ one time setup fee.
We have experience with Twilio, Nexmo (Vonage), EZtexting & Bandwidth. Other providers are on request.
6. Request a new integration
You can contact our team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a new integration.
We can add new integrations in our dashboard on request at additional costs.
We will first make a quote how much it will cost.
