Create discount codes for a % or $ off the whole cart

Use this guide to create a discount code campaign for a % or $ off code that applies to the whole cart

💁 This discount is for offering a % or $ discount off your entire Mr Yum menu.

You might be used to setting these types of discounts up in the Mr Yum Manage Portal however after you enable our Reward tool, it overrides that section of the Manage Portal so you will need to set those types of discounts up in the Reward tool instead.

*For Example…

  • 10% off the whole menu
  • $5 off the whole cart*

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

          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.

          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

        3. Code redemption limit:

          • If there is no limit, keep ‘Unlimited’ ticked

        4. Custom code: Add in your desired code (e.g. FOOD10)
