Data validation coupon code methods are essential to make sure that coupons are not misused and that each coupon that is handed out is going to serve its purpose without any issues. This is only possible when you have the right kind of coupon validation system available and working for the purpose of getting optimal results.
One of the most essential things that we need to keep in mind when it comes to coupon validation is that a lot of it needs to be done online. The internet has become an essential place for shopping and online coupons are a huge deal. These are usually handed out with specific codes that are introduced to a website and then the person can collect the results they need.
This is the reason why coupon validation at POS is so important. It will have a huge role in the process of identifying the use of the codes and keeping things secure and safe for both the consumer and the business. The idea is to create the perfect system environment that is going to ensure the most reliable results without ever compromising the proper control of your sales and your coupon use.
Once you can create the perfect system that balances everything out, you will have a competitive edge, and this is going to help move your business forward. Just remember that using Digital coupons is a great way to attract an audience that might be undecided.
At the moment we have 6 different methods to validate a coupon.
You can use 1 method or combine multiple methods for each coupon.
1. On mobile device
Validate the coupon on the customer’s device either by entering a password or simply pressing a ‘redeem’ button without a password.
(This option does not work for printable coupons.)
2. QR code validation
Every mobile device (phone or tablet) with a camera and QR scanner can be used as a validation system.
At validation, the cashier scans the validation QR Code during the checkout and enters the validation password.
3. Validation Widget/App
We offer a validation widget and validation app to validate coupons. Our widget runs on any device with an internet browser and connection.
Our app can be downloaded in the app stores.
When you are using the validation widget our coupon will display a unique 6 digit validation code on the validation page which you can enter in the validation app/widget. Our validation widget also allows you to save extra personal data from your customer like the ‘money spent’ value.
4. Barcodes / own validation codes
You can import and use your own validation codes. Our system will automatically assign one of your unique validation codes for every distributed coupon.
For example, if you work with your own POS system or with a coupon clearinghouse you can import those unique validation barcodes in our platform.
We support all popular barcode formats.
5. Physical Stamps
With the physical stamp, you can just stamp the smartphone screen to validate the coupon or add a loyalty stamp.
Each Stamp has multi touchpoints. That can be individually identified when it is stamped on the screen of the smartphone.

6. API Integration
You can use our API & webhooks to develop your own validation process.
For example an embedded solution in your back office or CRM or POS devices.
