Subscribe to

A promo code is a combination of symbols that gives the right to purchase a product or service on special conditions, for example, a discount for a specific product or for the entire amount of an order. Unlike discounts on goods, which are visible to all visitors of the site and portal, only those who have received the promo code from the seller can use the promo code.

You can create millets discount code to send to your customers, and customers can enter the received promotional codes in their shopping cart and receive discounts on orders. The use of promotional codes is available in the shopping cart in the desktop and mobile versions of the site and on the portal.

A promo code is an additional way to promote your products, and you can decide for yourself what restrictions to set, how and to whom to provide discounts using a promo code.

You can distribute promotional codes to customers in any convenient way, for example, using email newsletters or social networks. The Market offers Simple Mailing and Send Pulse Web Push applications, with which you can send promotional codes to your customers.

You can create promo codes with your own name (for example, springsale19) or generate random promo codes. Discounts for a promotional code can be both in percentage (for example, 5%) and in monetary terms (for example, UAH 50).
