Creating Special Offers

Offers can be generated to promote your products. Stock codes can be quoted online and in print and your customers enter them at checkout.

How do I include an offer code?

You can create offers for your customers by providing them with an offer code to use at the checkout. This code can be quoted in adverts with the aim of driving traffic to your website. You can choose to discount by a percentage or by a price for a specific period of time.

Once you have decided whether this offer is a discount price or a discount percentage you can then follow the relevant instructions to create the offer.
