Discount codes obtained from the API in real time

In addition to code stacks, Mailocator allows you to read discount codes in real time from an external API, display them in a thank you page and pass them to an email tool.

Conditions for connecting to an external API

API must be accessible without authentication (username and password authentication methods are not supported).
After the call, data is expected in JSON format, which contains the code and optionally additional text - for example, the amount of the discount.

Open Features and Settings.
Select Promocodes and Gift Coupons.
Continue with the Create Code Stack button.

Select API Codes.
Name the code group (API connector in this case).
Enter the address of the interface from which the codes will be read.
Enter the name of the property returned by the JSON structure that contains the promo code.
If you also want to pass text information, enter the name of this property in the returned JSON.

From now on, the discount codes will be automatically added to the pop-up and passed to the e-mail tool as soon as the user confirms the newsletter subscription.

In Scenarios, select the campaign and click the gift icon.
The codes can be attached to all campaigns that support email marketing.

Assign the required stack – API connector to the campaign.

Information on the correct loading and passing of the code can be found in the Monitoring of your project.
If an error has occurred (red line), click on this line for detailed information on processing the request to help you resolve the error.


Switching between integrations within the same project

If you need to route some campaigns to the CRM, others to an email tool, and store the results from surveys in an independent database, this solution is also easy to set up.

Automated values, adding values to hidden inputs

Merging of arbitrary fields and automatic filling of selected fields with a series of system values

Launch a campaign when you hover or touch a specific location on the page

Mark a location that triggers a campaign when the user hovers over it or touches it on a touch device

Mailocator Events

With events, you can intelligently manage the sequence of campaigns across the entire workflow scenario and display much more relevant and precisely targeted content in real time.
