    • 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. Depends…

    - 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.

      5. Advanced code settings: can be left unticked for standalone codes

Step 3: Test the code

Now, it's important to go test your code on your customer-facing Mr Yum menu to ensure it have been set up correctly.

For example, if you have made a 10% off drinks code, I’d add a food item & drink item to cart and ensure the code is accepted and only applies to the drink.
