When using Happy Birthday app to send out your birthday emails, you can select the method by which your customer will redeem their discount. This article will explain the difference between using the auto-apply discount code option and the copy and paste discount code option.
Discount Code Options
This setting can be found within the Birthday Email Campaign settings:
Within the Discount Code Options section, you can select the preferred method for customers to redeem their birthday email discount using either copy and paste or auto-apply.
Shopify Merchants can utilise the auto-apply discount feature to make the process of applying a discount code straight from the birthday email a breeze. This can result in fewer support enquiries from Customers related to incorrectly copying and pasting the discount code from the email to the Checkout.
This feature is only available if you are using our Happy Birthday App to send out the Birthday Emails. If you have enabled an integration to send out your Birthday Campaign Emails, then a similar feature is already built into the discount landing page for that integration.
The Discount Applied Landing Page will confirm if the discount code is still valid and then inform the customer that their discount has been automatically applied to their shopping session. They are then prompted to click the Shop now button to activate the session:
The Shop Now button in the example above has been styled with custom CSS. To find out how to style the button and other elements of the page to match your own branding, please read our guide: Styling the Discount Applied Landing Page
