Your customers can type the Coupon code at the last step of the booking process before payment is taken and the new total will be automatically recalculated for them.
Coupon codes used will be displayed in the confirmation emails and PDF receipts.
Here are the settings of Coupon codes explained with ideas for various use:
Go to back office > Dashboard > Coupon codes. Here you can create a New coupon or Edit existing ones. If you click on a Coupon code's Title you will get into the Edit screen.
There are 2 sections for Coupons that you can set up: Basic settings and Fine Tuning.
(Under construction: In App sharing: Yes/No - this radio option is to assign the coupon to DriveNot mobile app use. If set to Yes a Share button will show in the DriveNot app. If anyone clicks to Share a link to your company on the app will receive an email with this coupon inside it. The coupon will also be added to the shared link for recipients to enjoy when booking your services through the DriveNot app. This feature is especially powerful because it draws new customers with an incentive to use your services at a discounted rate. All other coupon restrictions will be applied to this coupon as set below.
Tip: Only one coupon code can be assigned to In App sharing so make most of it like offering 50% discount on the first ride.)
Title: - a friendly name for internal use so you can identify the coupon quickly in the list at the back end.
Coupon code: - the actual coupon code that will be used from your customers.
Tip: To avoid any confusion please use all capital letters mixed with numbers. Actually the easier you make the coupon to memorize the better.
Discount type: Fixed or Percentage - here you decide to offer fixed value or percentage of the total.
Discount value: - this is the value of the discount.
Tip: If set to 10 and above option Discount type is set to Percentage then the discount will be 10% of the Total if Discount type is set to
Fixed it will be £10 (depending on your currency).
