Who can use this feature?
Running a coupon promotion can help you build your business in a variety of ways:
- Rewarding client loyalty
- Promoting a service or product
- Attracting new clients
Pike13 gives you the tools to create coupons and run coupon promotions for a limited or unlimited time that give your clients a discount while you achieve your goals.
Coupon discounts can be applied to any monthly and prepaid plans, single-visit and prepaid passes, course registration, and merchandise in your Pike13 business. A coupon discount does not apply to an invoice total, it applies to an eligible item up to the limit of redemptions that you allow for that coupon in the timeframe you have set. When a client redeems it, the coupon discounts the original or manually adjusted price of an item before any other discounts, credits, proration, and taxes.
Creating a coupon
- At the top of any Pike13 page, tap Settings, and then tap Coupons.
- On the Coupons page, tap + New Coupon.
- On the New Coupon page, enter a name for the coupon
- Add a coupon code (using ALL CAPs and numbers without spaces) that has not been used for any other coupon in your Pike13 business.
- Specify how the discount is calculated and the amount of the discount.
- Choose each item that is eligible for the discount. This is a search bar, so if you do not see the item appear, start typing in the name.
