This feature is only available on our Business and Premium Plans.
This documentation will explain in detail how to use the Entry Codes feature and the Entry Codes for bonus entries feature.
Overview - Entry Codes
The Entry Codes feature allows you to have users input a unique code that you provide them with. You can upload a CSV file of these codes, so our system can validate that the code the user enters is valid or invalid. There is no restriction on the amount of codes you can upload.
To use this feature, simply click Entry Code on the left side under the forms section. Upload a CSV of your valid codes. All the codes must be in the first column of the CSV file. Do not input any column headers. The codes can be in any format -- numbers, letters, or both.
Once you have uploaded your codes, decide if you want the codes to be one-time use only. If you set this to yes, this means once a code is used, it cannot be used again. If you set it to no, it means the code can be used over and over again.
Overview - Entry Codes For Bonus Entries
The Entry Codes for bonus entries feature allows you to give users additional entries into the promotion for inputting unique codes you provide them with. You can upload a CSV file of these codes, or you can use the same file that was uploaded for the Entry Code field that appears on the entry form.
In order to use the Entry Codes feature, you must upload a CSV file with all of the codes appearing in the first column of the file. In addition, there should be no column titles or headers. Row 1 should be your first code, followed by all of your other codes.
Example Use Case 1
If you are running a promotion where you want users to purchase a product, then go online to enter the unique code that came with their product in order for a chance to win something, you can do this using our Entry Codes feature. You would simply just upload a CSV of all the valid codes that are on your products, and then our system is able to validate that the code the person uses is correct.
Example Use Case 2
If you want to run a scavenger hunt on your website where people have to search to find a unique code or number in order to enter your promotion, you can do this using the Entry Codes feature. You would simply just upload a CSV containing the code or number that you want people to find in your scavenger hunt, and then our system is able to validate that the code the person uses is correct. If you just want the first person that finds the code to win, you can set the code to be one-time use, which means the first person that enters your promotion with that code will be the winner.
