Applying Restrictions

There are various ways you can restrict codes to create urgency and prevent misuse. Simply tap 

Add Restriction and you'll see several restriction types. Below are several examples. 

  • You can set a minimum order value and a maximum order value.
  • You can limit the total number of uses across all customers and also limit the number of uses per customer.
  • You can limit the total value of redemptions across all customers and also limit the total value per customer.
  • You can limit the use to order types.
  • You can limit the use to select customers. You can lock the code to individual customers and contact us for their IDs.
  • You can reset count and value limits on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. 

You can also apply multiple restrictions to a code but this should be carefully considered. While certain restrictions work well together, it's possible that two restrictions can clash and cause the code to not function properly. Please contact us if you have an idea you'd like to set up.
