A promotion code (or promocode, promo code) is a unique series of numbers and letters that is given to the clients or partners to obtain a discount on their purchase, such as a percentage off purchase, or other discount. Normally promotion codes are used in order to promote and boost sales of their products, and even reward loyal customers.

The customers who order a specific product can get a discount by entering a promotion code provided to them. Learn more about BILLmanager discounts in the System of discounts sections.

You can set the period during which your promo code can be used, create a code that can be used unlimited number of times or only once (for example, additional promo codes can be used only once). After a client enters his promo code into the new service registration form, the number of used promo codes on list will change into 1.
