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 them so you can love them too.

There are 2 types of promo codes available:

  • Dollar: a certain dollar amount discount
  • Percentage: a certain percentage discount

Free Item promo codes should only be used in special cases and will not automatically add menu items to customers' carts. 

To create a new code: 

  1. Go to Customers > Promo Codes
  2. Click on Add New Promo Code
  3. Fill in all of the Required Settings (see tips below)
  4. Fill in any of the Optional Settings (see tips below)
  5. Click on Add Promo Code

Required Settings

Optional Settings

  • Location Type: This defaults to Both Catering and Online Ordering but you could create a promo code for Catering Only if you were advertising a new catering menu
