How do I create discount codes for my customers?

Discount codes are a great way of rewarding your repeat customers, to create buzz for occasions like a product launch, or special events that you're attending or celebrating. 

Important 

  • When using codes for the first time, test that they are working how you expect by adding items to the cart and checking the prices. 
  • Please keep in mind that if a Discount Code and a Sale is applied to an item, both discounts will be applied to the price. 
  • Only one code per Store can be applied per Order.

 

Creating a discount code

On your product page, you will see a tab marked "Promotions." Click the tab and find the box on the right side that says "Create Promotion."

The next screen has places to fill out the details of your discount such as amount off and how long the promotion will last. Be sure to select 'Discount Code' rather than 'Site Sale'.

When you click 'Save' a code will be created for you, but you can change it by editing the text box and clicking 'Update'. Codes must be 8-20 characters long.

Next, you should see the 'Code details', a confirmation that your discount has been created.

After you have created a discount, you can see it in your promotions tab. Options to edit and delete are on the right side.

You can edit the promotion to 'enable' or 'disable' it.  

Sharing the code

Append the code to a product URL to make it easier to share in an email or on social media. Just add ?dc=YourDiscountCode to your product or store link. e.g.

http://www.tindie.com/products/hackadaystore/2017-hackaday-superconference-badge/?dc=5C0E25FB

or 

https://www.tindie.com/products/10848?dc=5C0E25FB

or

https://www.tindie.com/stores/hackadaystore/?dc=5C0E25FB

Buyers can also add it on their shopping cart.
