Organizers can now create discount codes to share on their social media, or just with their family and friends! They can be applied to all your events, or specific ones by searching for them when creating the discount. Once they’ve been created and you’ve shared the link, anyone with the code will be able to apply it at checkout. Here we’ll show you step-by-step how to create your own discount codes on Colinkz.com:
1. Go to your user dashboard.
2. Click on “Discounts“
Here you will see all previously created discounts and be able to delete, edit, or share them. To create a new one, simply click “Create Discount” in the top right corner.
3. Once you’ve clicked “Create Discounts” you are then able to specify the details for your discount code.
In the top half of the page you can:
- Enter your custom discount name, or have a random one be generated by us.
- Select discount type: percentage amount or dollar amount.
- Specify how the discount can be applied: is it for all of your active events, or just one?
4. Further down the page, you can specify the usage limits and the dates the discount will be active.
This determines how many people can use your discount, and how often. When you select “Number of times it can be used total”, a text box will appear where you can input the maximum number of times you want this discount to be used. When you select “Limit to one use per customer”, that means that anyone who uses the discount will only be able to use it with one order. If they try to place a second order with the same discount code, they will receive an error message at checkout.
Here you can specify how long the discount will be active for. You decide the start date/time, as well as the end. People that try to use the discount code outside of the active date will receive an error message at checkout.
5. Start sharing!
Once you’ve finished creating your discount, you’ll receive your shareable link. You can share this link with your social media and other platforms, or you can share it privately with your friends and family. Don’t worry if you exit out of the pop-up too fast – you can access the link at any time by clicking the share icon next to your discount details.
‘Til next time,
