We developed a new type of promotion codes that will allow the user to start a subscription without entering a payment method.
You can create a campaign with promotion codes that will give a user a 100% discount when used. You can decide if you want to give those codes away for free or sell them through other channels e.g. as gift cards. To create this type of code please follow the steps described here.
The code can be embedded in a link of the campaign so that the user doesn’t need to enter it to consume it.
The URL needs to look like this: https://YOURSERVICEURL/checkout?promoCode=YOURCODE.
Special rules for bypass checkout codes
- The codes can handle only a 100% discount.
- If a customer has no payment method registered when the promotion ends and has activated a subscription offer the account will enter the dunning process following the same rules as for regular accounts with subscription offers before it is downgraded.
- If a customer has a payment method registered when the promotion ends and has activated a subscription offer the customer will be charged the regular price for the offer.
- All promo code limitations apply also to bypass checkout codes.
