Claim codes (Promo codes) and combinability

Claim codes are keys that allow a discount to be applied to an order. The buyer must enter the code at checkout to benefit from the promotion.

You specify whether or not to require a claim code when you create your promotion. If you require that a buyer enters a claim code, you can limit the promotion to one redemption per buyer. You also can allow customers to enter multiple claim codes for increased savings.

As a general rule:

  • If a promotion does not require a claim code, it will combine with all of your promotions that do not require claim codes.
  • If your promotion does require a claim code, it will combine with all of your promotions that do not require claim codes and with some or all of your promotions that do require claim codes.

Combining claim codes

Depending on how you create your claim code rules, buyers can combine your available claim codes to receive higher discounts. When allowing multiple claim codes on the same items, be careful, because unintended deductions can occur.
