Creating promo codes in Boomerang

Boomerang is Mr Yum's voucher and loyalty program. This feature needs to be turned on, so if you would like to set this up, please contact support or your Account Manager.

Once you have turned on Boomerang, you can no longer setup voucher codes under discounts/surcharges. You will need to create any existing codes in Boomerang.

Once you have setup your voucher, you can distribute these to your customers and they enter them in the cart under Discount Code

  2. Click Vouchers in the left-hand corner
  3. Click the + button in the top right-hand corner
  4. Click Create under Discount coupons
  1. Under Program Name, select a name for your vouchers
  2. Set the number of vouchers you would like under Code Count
  3. Click Advanced code settings

    2. Code Length sets how long the voucher code will be
    3. You can add a prefix (MRYUMxxx), postfix (xxxMRYUM) or Pattern (MRxxxYUM) to your codes here.
    Try and keep these simple for your customers so they are easy to remember and enter.
