Coupon Page

The coupon type page allows to include a coupon image in your app which the end user will be able to use (namely show it to the vendor) in order to benefit of a discount, etc.
The coupon image becomes unlocked (displayed on the screen of the device) after end user scans a certain amount of times the QR code printed on your product, or displayed on the screen in your points of sale, etc.

The coupon image becomes unlocked (displayed on the screen of the device) after end user scans a certain amount of times the QR code printed on your product, or displayed on the screen in your points of sale, etc.
 

NOTE: Coupon page type can only be viewed on a device. Editor mode simulator is for demonstration purposes only.

In Edit mode, it is possible to customize the following options:
 
 
 
 
1. Coupon name: Your coupon name

2. Coupon image: Your coupon image

 
 
 
 
3. Start date: Coupon will be available starting with this date

4. End date: Coupon will be available until this date

5. QR code data: Data (text, etc) contained in the QR code

 
 
 
 
6. Check-in target amount: Number of times required to scan QR code in order to unlock the coupon image in the app

7. Hours before next check-in: Hours to pass until next scanning is possible

8. Can be used again: The coupon can be used again after being used once

9. Coupon description: Set description for coupon
 
The coupon is "locked" until QR code is scanned the required amount of times.
User can read instructions tapping on "How to Unlock" or proceed to scanning by tapping on "Scan" button.
 
 
 
 
Coupon successful scanning the Checkin target amount will be automatically incremented by 1 (for instance 1 of 4) and the following message will pop up:
 
 
 
 
When Checkin amount target is reached (for instance 4 of 4) coupon image is unlocked and user prompted to show the coupon to the vendor:
 
 
 
 
 
After vendor taps on "Use this coupon" the coupon image becomes locked and Check-in target amount is nulled (0 of 4)
 
 
 
 
Unlocking the coupon will require scanning the QR code from the beginning.
--------
In case of failure to scan the following messages will pop-up:
 
 
 
 
- scan the QR code again,
 
 
 
 
- coupon is not valid until Start date (availability period is set in the page),
 
 
 
 
- coupon is not valid any longer (date is set in the page).

How do you scan the coupon?

There are many QR code scanner apps on Google Play and iTunes. One would download one of these apps and use them to scan the QR Code for the coupon.

If the coupon is on my phone (with the QR Code), how can I scan the QR Code???  I think iphone gives you a scan button on the coupon page type but android does not.

Let me elaborate on this some:

Pay attention to QR code data: Here you write a secret data (text, etc) that will be contained in the QR code. So you want to get your QR Code generated at a website such as http://www.qrstuff.com/. In the data type you'll want to select "Plain Text", put a word in there like "coupon" and you'll want to put that EXACT word in the QR code data field on the app builder. You'll then want to download the QR code and replace the QR code that comes standard on the Coupon Page Type with it.
 
Let's say you have written "secret". Then in order to unlock the coupon you will have to scan the QR Code od the word "secret". If you scan the QR Code af another word/URL then then the coupon will not unlock. 
 
A very simple example how you could use this page: 
 
Let's say I am a shop owner. The Coupon Page would work like this - "In order to unlock the coupon, please go to the third floor. There on the wall will be a QR Code printed. Scan this with your device and unlock the Coupon and show it to the vendor in order to get a 50 % discount." 
 
With your iOS device you just need to scan (there is a scan button, for Android you have to press menu button in order to see scan tab).
 
I know you just wanted to know about the Android Scan button but I figured I'd elaborate some for those who are still a little confused on how this works. So remember, tap on the MENU button of your Android device and you will see the scan tab.
