Discount code with prefixes

Hi Community members,

 

I am here to figure out some ways for the below scenario.
 
We use discount codes for various purposes and we want to categorise (and subcategories) them for our analytic purposes. How do we achieve this?

If it is possible to have new fields while generating the random discount codes, it would be helpful. 
 
However, if that's not possible, is there a way to have a field for PREFIXES so that we categorize the discounts based on them?
Please let me know if there are third-party apps available or any work arounds for the same

Can you just clarify your definition of categorise the discount codes please. i.e are you referring to categories such as Customer Complaint / unsatisfied customer / delivery cost / High Value Customer etc.., or are you referring to actually product categories that the DV is to be used on?

If my solution has helped, I would appreciate you adding your thanks to the post and accepting it as a solution.

Sure. So, let us say I use discount codes for PROMOTIONS and NEW CUSTOMERS.
So, when Shopify generates a random code like this, 0DHK9L, if I am able to
add a prefix field like PROMO for promotions and NEW for discounts given to
new customers, I would be able to categorise the discount as a discount
given for the respective type. Please let me know if it's not clear

perfect, thank you.

So the good news is that there are a fair few apps out there that offer this functionality for you.

Most I believe are free trials then a small monthly cost.

 

The other way is to manually generate in batch ahead of time using the prefixes.

 

I would suggest you go on the app store and search for prefix discounts and see if anything tickles your fancy

in the pattern, you can specify a prefix before whatever characters you want
