Whether you’re participating in a marketplace flash sale or would like to give an additional incentive to purchase, creating a marketplace coupon is the easiest way to offer discounts on your product.

Coupons require either a dollar or percentage discount off the full price of the box, descriptive text with an applicable coupon code, and specifications on the number of times the discount will apply to purchase.

What types of discounts will show on listings?

If you set a flat-rate discount, it will show the dollar amount off. If you set a percentage discount, it will show the percentage off.

The coupon needs to be already active in order to be added to your listing. The coupon can't be scheduled to activate at a later date; otherwise, it won't work on your listing.

No discount coupon will not show on your marketplace listing. 

How to Add a Coupon to Your Listing

Once you've created your coupon using the instructions in Creating a Coupon, it's fairly simple to add it to your Cratejoy Marketplace Listing.

Step 1: Go to Product Listings 

Once you’ve made your coupon, you’ll need to head to the Product Listings page of your seller dashboard and scroll down to select the coupon you’d like to feature on that specific listing. You can set up as many coupons as you want but can only display one coupon per listing at a time. 

Step 2: Scroll to the Bottom of Basic Info

At the bottom of the basic info section, you'll see a drop-down menu to select your coupon and a box to enter the Discount Text. 

You will also need to add your coupon code to the Discount Text section in order for subscribers to see what coupon to add at checkout. 

Where does the added coupon show up on my listing? 

When someone is browsing a category that your subscription box is in, it will show up as a green corner tag showing the discounted amount or percentage.

On your listing page, there will be a green bar with the coupon code and the discount amount displayed for potential subscribers.

Keep in Mind

You can only add active coupons to your listing. This means that if you set up your coupon’s “Activate Date” to be in the future under the Limitations tab, you’ll need to select that coupon under the drop-down menu after the coupon goes live so the coupon displays on your listing. (If you try to add the coupon to your listing earlier, it won’t display, per the limitation.)
