Getting Started With Coupon Carrier and Sendinblue

Coupon Carrier allows you to import your pre-generated codes or generate them automatically from supported services. These unique discounts or coupons can then be distributed to contacts using a Sendinblue Automation. This guide will show how to send a unique code to each contact that's added to a list. 

Here's an overview of the steps we're going to cover in this guide:

  1. Create a new Sendinblue Automation.
  2. Add a "Call a Webhook" action that sends a notification to Coupon Carrier.
  3. Wait for the code to be assigned to the contact. We don't want to send out the email until we know that the code has been assigned.
  4. Send an email with the unique code included.

Send a unique code to each contact that is added to a list

  1. If you already have a list of unique codes that you want to distribute to your subscribers, you can Import your codes to a code list. If you're using an e-commerce platform that we support, you can choose to have your codes automatically generated. In this example, we'll create a new code list and add a few unique codes.
  2. On the main Configurations tab, create a new Code Email configuration and connect it to your Sendinblue account.
  3. We're going to deliver the mail using a Sendinblue Automation, so let's choose this option.
  4. Next, select which Code list you want to use as the source for your codes. Here we'll choose the one that we created in the first step.
  5. Before we switch over to Sendinblue, save and activate the configuration. Only active configurations will trigger new codes to be added.
  6. Switch over to your Sendinblue account and create a new Automation. Select "Create a custom workflow" and give it a name. Next, add an entry point to the automation and choose "Contact" > "A contact is added to a list".
  7. Immediately after a contact starts this automation, we're going to send a notification to Coupon Carrier. Add a "Call a Webhook" action and use the URL from your newly created Code Email in Coupon Carrier. When sent, Coupon Carrier will add an event to the contact that contains the unique code.
  8. To ensure that a code is assigned before we send the email, add a "Wait until" > "Website activity" condition and choose the option "Until a 'Track Event' occurs" and enter "couponcarrier" as the event name to track. In most cases, we recommend setting the option "Contacts who have not carried out this action will exit the step after" to 30 days instead of 30 minutes, which is the default. 
  9. Add a "Send an email" action and ensure that you select the option "Use my event data to customize the email" and enter "couponcarrier" as the event name. This allows you to access the event with the unique code. Edit the email template and add {{ params.code }} to the place where you want the code to be shown.
  10. And we're done! Save and activate the automation, and then you can test it by manually adding a new contact to your email list. If you need help or have questions, contact us using the help feature at the lower right when you're signed in to your Coupon Carrier account.
