Create a coupon
1. Go to the menu Business > Couponing > My Coupons
2. Click "Create a coupon" button on the top right of the screen.
You will be directed to the creation page of the coupon which displays several customization options detailed below.
To the right of the screen you can see a preview of the design of the coupon in real time to review your modifications.
You can choose the title of your coupon.
Here you can add some more information about your offer.
The validation process
You can choose between two validation processes:
- Redeem button, the preferred option in the case of a physical business.
- Promo code, the preferred option in the case of an online business.
You have the possibility to customize the text of both the button and the code.
Of course these indications are just recommendations. You can use the validation processes as you wish. However please note that in the case of the promo codes, the Couponing extension will only serve as a means to display the promo code. The way codes are handled in your billing process is out of the hands of GoodBarber.
You can choose the date of validity, expiration date for your coupon, the number of coupons available as well as the number of uses by client.
You also have the option to classify coupons per category. This is especially useful if your coupons relate to different businesses or one store with several major aisles. In that case, categories make for a clutter free more user friendly experience.
This option lets you indicate the name and location of the store the coupon you are creating is related to.
With this view you can change the image to illustrate your coupon.
To the right of your screen, right below the preview screen you can click on "More design settings". You can customize the design of all the sections inside your app related to the Couponing extension (list of coupons, coupon page, saved coupons, coupons’ history, as well as the actions screens).

Access the list of your coupons from the menu Business > Couponing > My Coupons
This list gives you an overview of all your coupons, the business they are attached to, the number of redeemed coupons, the status of the coupons (active or draft), and the access to the statistics page.
This page allows you to monitor the success of your coupons.
Note: Menus have changed in the back office, but the behavior explained in the video is still accurate.
