How to: Set limited validity vouchers
Limiting validity periods on gift vouchers is a great way to drive business in the off-season. Forcing redemptions in January and February, for example, encourages footfall in the quieter months. Here’s a quick guide on how it’s done.
Once you’re logged in, click ‘Vouchers’ in the main navigation bar, then click ‘All Vouchers’ and choose the voucher you’d like to set a limited validity on.
Firstly you’ll need to set the ‘Validity period’ drop down to ‘Specific Date’ and then select the date you’d like these vouchers to expire from the ‘Expiry Date’ date picker.
Add a valid from period
If you would like to also set these vouchers to become valid from a specific date, tick the ‘Add a valid from period’ tick box. Once selected you’ll see a ‘Valid from period’ dropdown. Select ‘Specific Date’ and then select the date you’d like these vouchers to become valid from, in the ‘Prevent until’ date picker. If you enable this, voucher codes will show as ‘Not yet valid’ before this date in the system.
When you have completed the steps above click ‘Save Voucher’.
Top tip: Try combining limited validity vouchers with a special offer or promo code. It’s a great way to increase business in the off-season.
