Create a discount code for a free item

This discount type is for offering a free item to the cart with no other conditions for qualification (you may add a minimum spend condition). For example… - Get a free Coke when you spend $40 or more

This article relates to creating vouchers within the Reward platform. If you are looking to create discount codes within your Manage account, click here and follow the guides on the page.

How To:

Step 1: Log In to ‘Reward’

  1. Log in to the Mr Yum ‘Reward’ Tool

  2. On the left-hand side, select the Project (venue) you want to create the vouchers for

Step 2: Create the Campaign

  1. Select Campaign, on the left-hand side of the page

  2. Click on the + button in the top right-hand corner to create the campaign

  3. Click on —> Create under Discount Coupons

  4. Choose between Bulk Codes or Standalone Code 
    What's the difference? 🤔
    • Bulk: Multiple unique codes E.g. You want to make 100 unique discount codes, such as 10% off all Drinks, and be able to track who has redeemed these
    • Standalone: 1 custom code E.g. You want one code anyone can use to get 10% off all drinks
  5. - If doing bulk codes

      1. Program name: What will you call the campaign (E.g. 10% discount on drinks)
      2. Auto update: Keep the checkbox ticked
      3. Customers will be allowed to join the campaign only once: Keep toggled off
      4. Category: Leave blank
      5. Description: Can you use this field to describe the discount, eg. 10% off Food
      6. Code redemption limit:
        1. Add in the number of redemptions allowed if you want to limit it.
        2. Tick the Unlimited check box if you don’t want to limit redemptions
      7. Code count: Set the number of codes you’d like to generate.
      8. Advanced code settings:
        1. Tick the checkbox if you want to customize how the code looks.
          1. Charset: If doing bulk codes we’d recommend keeping this set to Alphanumeric. The code will combine letters and numbers making it more complex

          2. Code length: Enter the number of characters you want the code to contain.

            😘 Keep it short & sweet so it's easy for the customer to add in. 3 characters = 45K+ unique options.

          3. Prefix: Do you want your code to start with a particular letter? Leave blank if no preference ie. ABC####

          4. Postfix: Do you want your code to end with a particular letter? Leave blank if no preference ie. ####ABC

        2. Leave unticked if you don’t need custom code and are happy for them to autogenerate

        If doing a standalone code
        1. Additional Information: Can use this field to describe the discount (e.g. 10% off Food)

        2. Category: Leave blank

        3. Code redemption limit:

          • If there is no limit, keep ‘Unlimited’ ticked
          • If there is a limit (e.g. 100), untick ‘Unlimited’ and add in the number of redemptions
        4. Custom code: Add in your desired code (e.g. FOOD10)

          😘 Keep it short & sweet so it's easy for the customer to add in.
