Stores on Design Kollective have the ability to offer visitors coupons in exchange for store follows through the coupon template feature.
Coupon Templates & Coupon Offerings
A coupon template is a blueprint for a single use coupon that is generated automatically when a user performs a specific action, like following your store. It's important to think of them not as a coupon, but rather a blueprint or template for coupons that will be created at a later date.
To use an analogy, think of a coupon as a cookie and a coupon template as the cookie cutter. One uses a cookie cutter to make more than one cookie of the same size and shape.
After you create a Coupon Template, users viewing your Design Kollective boutique will be prompted to follow your store in exchange for a coupon:
When a user follows your store, they will receive the generated coupons in an email. They'll also be added to your Design Kollective contact list, opting them into your store's marketing emails.
Coupon Template Settings
You can manage your Coupon Templates from the Coupon Template page in your store's admin area.
