  • Open your Online Order app

  • Enter a Discount "Name" Use a name that describes the amount, type or audience of the coupon.  This name will be visible to customer on the receipt.  eg. "20 Percent Off for New Customers"

  • Enter a coupon "Code".  Used by your customer at the checkout page to apply the discount

  • Enter a "Max Redemption" This determines how many overall times the discount code can be used

  • Select Pickup, Delivery or both Order Types. 

    • You can select what order type the discount can be used for

  • Select Percentage or Fixed Discount type

    • If you select Percentage you have to enter a % amount 

    • If you select Percentage you can also set a Maximum discount amount "Max. discount". It limits the discount to a maximum amount.  e.g. 10% off on $150 order would normally be $15 off, but can be limited to $10. 

  • Set "Discount For" 

    • "First User" is for 1st time Orderspoon customers

    • "Any User" is for any customer whether they had created an account before or not can obtain the discount

  • How Many Times Can a Customer Use This Coupon, defines how many times coupon can be used by one customer

    • "Once"  A given customer can only use this discount once.  Customer profiles are identified based on their phone number

    • "Multiple Times", no limit to how many times a customer can use.

  • Set "Min. sub-total amount". 

    • Discount is not applied unless order sub-total exceeds entered amount .  Coupons with a discount amount typically need a minimum purchase amount to be valid.

Tracking the number of times a discount has been used is visible in the Online Order dashboard. Access the discount in question and view the # of times it has been used.
