When you create a form to collect email subscribers, you may want to offer a discount code to the new subscribers after they subscribe. How to send the discount codes to new subscribers? You can display the code on the thank you page of your form, or send the code in the welcome email.

Discount code types

Before you use discount codes, you should understand discount code types.

In uShopAid, 2 types of discount codes are supported.

  • Fixed code. You create a code in advance, all the new subscribers will receive the same code. Discount codes can spread and cause losses to your store.

  • Unique code. You don't need to create a code in advance, you only need to define the discount rules, and after a person subscribes, a discount code will be generated for him. The codes every subscriber receives are different. Unique code is safer than fixed code.

Display the discount code on the thank you page of the form

Send the discount code in welcome email
