Getting started with Coupon Carrier and ManyChat
- A ManyChat Pro account
- Create a new Coupon Carrier configuration
- Configure how the code should be displayed (Text or QR/Barcode)
- Choose the source of the unique codes
- Activate the new configuration
- Create a ManyChat Broadcast and test it
Create a new Coupon Carrier configuration
From the main configurations tab in Coupon Carrier, create a new configuration using the "Create a New Configuration" button at the top right and then choose the "ManyChat Dynamic Content Template".
Configure how the code should be displayed (Text or QR/Barcode)
Depending on what kind of code/coupon you're sending to your subscribers, you might want to display the code as plain text or as a QR/barcode. You can choose which option fits your needs. The QR/barcode option allows you to select which type of barcode you'd like to create, and also a few different sizes.
Choose the source of the unique codes
If you have a list of unique codes you can import these into a Code List and then choose to use that as the source for your configuration. When a code is requested from ManyChat, Coupon Carrier will pick the next available code from the list. All new accounts will have a small sample code list that you can use for testing.
Activate the new configuration
Finally, save your changes and choose to activate the configuration when asked. You can also activate/pause the configuration using the toggle switch on the main configuration list. Once activated, the custom link shown at the top will be active. In the next step, we'll use that link in ManyChat to get the unique codes.
Create a ManyChat Broadcast and test it
Login to your ManyChat account and create a new Broadcast message (Broadcasting > New Broadcast). Next, add a new Dynamic Content block. If this isn't available, check that you have enabled the DevTools under the account settings.
Add a new Dynamic Content block to your message:
Save the settings and then use the Preview feature of ManyChat to preview the message. This will send the message to you on Messenger.
