To create a new promotion code group:

  2. Click New.
    The General tab of the code group details page is displayed.
  3. Enter the required information.
    See the following table for details:
    Table 1. Promotion Code Group Attributes
    Option Description
    Name, ID, Description Enter a name, a unique ID string, and a descriptive text for the code group.
    Active check box Select the Active check box to enable the code group. As long as the code group is not enabled, the codes assigned to the group will not be accepted by the system when entered in the storefront.
    Activation Specify an activation period for the code group. If you want the code group to be enabled as long as the promotion runs it is assigned to, select the Active during promotion period check box. Otherwise define a differing activation period for the code group.
    Redemption Define how many times a promotion code can be redeemed, either in regards to a single customer or to all customers. Code reuse can be either unlimited or limited to a specific number.
    Note: In B2B scenarios, Code Reuse per Customer refers to actual B2B customers, not to individual users of a customer.
    Promotion Type When you select the In Store Redemption check box, customers can redeem a promotion code not only online, but also at their local store.
