This article covers how to make a code expire once used. Use the instructions in Basic Promotion Setup as a basis, with the modifications below.
Step 1: Enable
First, check the box labelled "one-time-use only." You will see the text field change to be expandable.
Step 2: Enter Code(s)
The expandable text field allows entering multiple codes at once, in batches. Separate each code on a new line, as shown below. You can also copy and paste them from a spreadsheet.
- Codes must be 15 characters or less.
- Test a single code first, to make sure of the settings. Once created, codes cannot be adjusted in batches, so it's better to plan ahead.
- When you enter the real codes, include one or two extras for further testing.
Step 3: Finish
Make sure to finish the instructions in Basic Promotion Setup. Once you click Add, the one-time-use codes will appear in the Current Promotions section.
Please note: Once created, codes cannot be adjusted in batches! It's much better to test a single code first, so that you don't make mistakes when you add the whole batch.
(Note: These results include orders where the customer entered a code but didn't use it, and they include any non-discounted tickets on matching orders.)
