How to create discount codes?

Use the codes so that users can receive discounts when purchasing tickets to your event.

Meetmaps allows you to create discount codes for event attendees to use when registering, allowing them to receive a percentage discount off the ticket price. Here's how to do it:

Navigate to the registration dashboard, click on the "Tickets" section in the sidebar menu, and go to the "Promotional Codes" tab.


You have two options:

  1. Create a new discount code.
  2. Import existing codes.
1. Creating a new discount code

With Meetmaps, you can create discount codes from scratch. To do this, click the "Create Code +" button, and a pop-up window will appear.


In this window, you need to fill out the following fields:

  • Code Title: Internal name for the discount (not visible to users, for your reference).
  • Promotional Code: The code attendees will input during registration.
  • Ticket: If you have different ticket types, the code can be linked to a specific one.
  • Discount: Percentage of discount the code will apply.
  • Number of Uses: How many times the discount can be used.

IMPORTANT ❗:  If you set the number of uses to 0, it will have unlimited uses.

💡To make the code active, switch on the "Activate Discount Code" toggle. If you want to activate it later, you can create the code and activate it when needed .

Once you've filled in all the fields, click the blue "Create Code" button.

2. Importing discount codes

If you plan to create many discount codes, importing is a convenient option. Click the "Import" button (next to the "Create Code" button), and a pop-up will appear.


The first step is to "Download the template." You'll see options to download in .xlsx or .csv formats. Choose the format you're comfortable with (for upload, use .csv).

After downloading, fill in the required fields in the document.

IMPORTANT ❗❗: Do not alter the column order or modify header titles in the template. Fill out all columns for each code.

Once you filled the document, upload it in .csv format. In the pop-up's second step, click "Upload file (.csv)" and select the file. After selecting, click "Import," and your codes will be ready to use.

Activating Codes

To see if a code is active and to toggle its activation status, click on the ☑️ next to the code.

  • Active: Displayed in blue.
  • Inactive: Displayed in white.

To change the status, simply click on it to toggle between active and inactive.

If you've made a mistake, you can delete a code using the 🗑️ icon.

Additionally, if you need to edit a code's configuration, click on the ⚙️ icon next to the code and edit the fields.

IMPORTANTE❗❗❗👍: Always create distinct codes, even if they are linked to different ticket types of tickets.
