Learn how to add general discount codes to your Recart text messages.
You now can either create new general discount codes or add existing ones into your Recart text messages. This feature allows you to track discount codes your customers have used via Recart text messages.
The general discount codes are static for every subscriber. In case you would like to create unique discount codes, that are dynamic for every subscriber please check this article.
In order for Recart to track sales accurately please make sure you are using a new general discount code that is not available in any other channels for each text message. The reason is that all sales generated using that code will be attributed to Recart so using a code that is advertised elsewhere might cause our numbers to be inaccurate. A sale will also be attributed to Recart when a subscriber clicks the link within your text message and completes the purchase even if they do not use the discount code they were given.
The first step is clicking on the % icon in the editor. Then you will be prompted to add the name of the discount code.
Now you have two options: you can either create a new general discount code or you can add one that already exists within your Shopify Admin. Again, we recommend creating a new general discount code each time to ensure that Recart can track the extra sales properly but if you are adding an existing code, please remember not to use it anywhere else.
Creating a new general discount code
Type the name of your new discount code and click Next. Once it is saved it will be automatically synced to your Shopify Admin.
Click Insert code.
Important Note: Once you have created the discount code there is no option to modify the name, type, or value of the code from Recart. You can edit these details from your Shopify Admin in the Discounts menu.
Adding an existing general discount code
If you are creating a new general discount code you will see a green checkmark next to the name. Once it is saved it will be automatically synced to your Shopify Admin.
Type the name of your code that already exists in Shopify and click Next.
All information is prefilled and cannot be edited in Recart.
Click on Insert code.
Once you have inserted the code you will see the discount code appear at the end of your flow. Please do not delete the discount code item.
Don’t forget to add a link to your message and connect it to your discount code.
Click on the link icon and choose the link type most suitable and connect it to your discount code. Please check this article for more details on how to add links to your flows.
