How to Setup Discount Code Groups

Discount codes are generated codes that are assigned to an individual or group of influencers within a campaign. You are able to use discount codes in order to track revenue within reporting. 


You must first connect your eCommerce store to Grin in order to create discount codes. If your store is not integrated you will not see the Discounts option within Brands.


Any changes that are made to your discount code group(s) will only apply to newly assigned discount codes. Discount codes that were assigned to your influencers prior to the changes will remain unchanged.

Step 1 Click Brands, within the navigation bar, and click Discounts icon.


Step 2 Click New Group.

Step 3 In "Step 1. Group Options", enter Group Name, select whether you want to manually assign codes or enter unique codes, and include a code pattern for your new code.


Code Pattern - A code to be included when generating your new discount code. For further tracking, you can include influencer variables to provide unique content. 


Do NOT set identical code patterns for different discount code groups. Having identical code patterns will lead to an error as an influencer cannot have identical codes from two separate groups.Step1-Group-Options.png
