Add a New Coupon Code


To Add a new Coupon Code, follow the below steps and you will end up at a right-aligned form in which you will be asked for multiple details to be filled to add a coupon code.





  • Code: You will receive the code from the advertiser's end. The code is not case-sensitive. You can use it either in the caps form or the small form. Though it is advised to use the coupon code in the Caps form only.


  • Campaign: Select the campaign on which the coupon will be applicable.


  • Type: Select the type of campaign in this option. The different types of coupon codes are described below:
    • Generic - These coupon codes are valid for all the publishers. It is mandatory for the publishers to use the tracking link generated from the Trackier platform only to record the conversions through the postback.
    • Exclusive - These coupon codes are valid for only one particular publisher. The conversions will track irrespective of the tracking link. It is not mandatory to use the Trackier's tracking link to record the conversions. The user can use the direct landing page that is added to our platform.
    • Unique - This coupon type works in the same way as the exclusive ones. The only difference in this type is that the coupons can only be used only once. Once the conversion is tracked at our end with this type of conversion, no other conversion will be recorded with that particular code. 


  • Publisher: You can whitelist coupon code for the publishers or you can block the publishers for the same purpose as well.


  • Description: Information about your coupon code will be added to this section.


  • Start Date: This feature is optional. If you want to set a particular time from which the coupon code tracking should work, you can set the starting time here.
