Multiple Deal Activation

One primary function of the keycode feature is that it enables you to activate multiple coupon-based sales deals and promotions on your web site and SOI with the entry of a single keycode. Once a keycode has been associated with specific coupon-based promotions those deals are available to customers once the keycode is entered during the transaction for web site orders. Using the Keycode plug-in provides the Keycode entry form, which replaces the standard Coupon Code form, and can be placed anywhere on your site. Once the code is entered, all promotional pricing is updated.


There are multiple steps to setup multiple deal activation:

  1. Request Keycode setup via CORESEnse Support portal
  2. Assign coupon codes to all deals to be tracked via keycodes
  3. Keycode entry and deal association
  4. Install Keycode plug-in



Multiple Deal Association


Multiple deals can be triggered by a single keycode for marketing and tracking purposes. For website usability, the keycode web form replaces your coupon code field with a keycode field. This form eliminates the need for you to communicate the difference between coupon codes and keycodes. You will need to contact CORESense Support to request a keycode setup for your website.


Deal Manager

To support the single code (keycode) entry field on your website, you need to assign a unique "dummy" (not customer facing code) coupon code to each deal that you want to have tracked and marketed using a keycode. In the example below, deal 1 and 2 will be tracked and activated by the entry of keycode = Aprilpromo. Deal 3 (although a single deal) also needs to be assigned it's own coupon code and related Keycode since the website form does NOT recognise coupon codes.

 If coupon codes are not assigned a coupon code, any order that meets the deal criteria will receive the discount and not be tracked via the keycode.

Enter a Description of the keycode event for your internal purposes.
