How to create a promo code

Whether a customer is new to your business, or already loyal to your brand, all customers love Promo Codes. Brandibble allows you to easily create and manage Promo Codes, so you can love them too.

Go to Payments & Promos > Promo Codes. The first page shows you a list of Promo Codes that have already been created. You can view by “Active Codes”, “Inactive Codes” or “Both Active & Inactive”:

Required Fields for Creating A Promo Code

Any tab with a red asterisk next to it is required to save the new Promo Code. These include:

  • Promo Code red asterisk The name of the promo code should be 15 characters or less, and can include any combination of letters and numbers
  • Status red asterisk To turn off a Promo Code, turn its status to “Inactive”
  • Type of Discount red asterisk Designates Promo Code as a dollar amount off or a percentage off
  • Discount Amount red asterisk Amount of dollar discount or percentage discount, based on your “Type of Discount” answer above
  • Max Uses red asterisk The number of times this Promo Code can be used, across all customers
  • Max Uses Per Customer red asterisk The max times one customer can use this Promo Code

Optional (but Useful) Fields for Creating A Promo Code

    • Location Type – This defaults to both “Catering and Online Ordering”, but you could set a Promo Code to “Catering Only” if you wanted to advertise a new Catering menu.
    • Service Type – This defaults to both “Delivery & Pickup”, but if you wanted to encourage customers to pick up their food, you may wish to create a Promo Code that only works for “Pickup Only”.
    • Start Date – Set the date you would like your customers to be able to begin redeeming your Promo Code here
    • End Date – Set the date that the promo code will end.  If you’re running a holiday promotion, for example, you may wish to set an end date for the end of the holiday period.
    • Approved Email Address  – Generally, you will want to set this to “No”.  If you want ONLY specific email addresses to redeem this Promo Code, you would set this to “Yes”.  You can learn how to attach email addresses to Promo Codes here.
    • Domain – Enter a domain to restrict Promo Codes to users with emails ending in a certain domain.  For example, you would enter a domain if you wanted to create a Promo Code to attract employees of a certain business near your store.  The image below shows the creation of a “WelcomeGoogle” Promo Code that only works for first time customers with “google.com” in their email address:
