Configuring your booking calendar for Groupon and other discount codes

Posted on Updated on

The webreserv booking system now allows for both multi-use and single-use discount codes.

Multi-use discount codes can be used multiple times. I.e. you can create a discount code called SUMMER2011 and advertise this discount code on your website to all your customers.

Single-use discount codes can only be used once. When you create the discount code, you can upload a list of valid codes, such as SUMMER0001, SUMMER0002, SUMMER0003 etc. Whenever a discount code is used in a reservation, it is marked as being used and cannot be used again. The single-use discount code works well with Groupon, Living Social and other coupon sites.

    What is your recommendation for setting this up when someone needs to make multiple reservations for a group on the same date using more than one Groupon? I can’t seem to get it to work smoothly so I could use some help. Thanks.

      The discount code field will allow for multiple groupon codes at the same time. Each code should be separated by comma.

    Just checking… if a customer enters a discount code that covers their entire balance, is there a way to process the reservation without requiring them to input a credit card number?

      Yes, you can turn off credit card requirements under Setup – Business Information – Payments.

    Thanks Martin. We’ll give it a try and let you know how it goes. Any limitation on how many Groupon codes we can upload into the system?

      Hello Kathy. No there is no limit to the number of groupon codes that you can upload.
