Edit a Coupon List
To edit coupon list information.
You cannot change the name of a coupon list. The name is a unique identifier in the system and is used to add the coupons to a message (see Add Coupons to a Message).
The Coupon Manager is a billable feature that must be activated for your system. To activate the coupon manager, contact your Account Manager.
In Mapp Engage, coupons are managed in coupon lists. To ensure well organized coupon management, each coupon list only contains one type of coupon (for example, free shipping or 25% discount).
Additional coupons can be added to a list even if the coupon list already contains coupons. Coupons are created in a shop or CRM system as a TXT or CSV file and uploaded to Mapp Engage (see Import Coupons Into a Coupon List). The system that creates the coupon regulates the valid use of the coupon during the purchase or order process.
Mapp Engage administers the distribution of coupons to the message recipients (see Add Coupons to a Message). A coupon can only be sent one time to one recipient. If the placeholder for a coupon list is inserted multiple times in the same message, the same coupon code is displayed in each location. If several different coupons must be included in a message, the coupons must be inserted from multiple lists.
The maximum length for each coupon code is 200 characters.
