    NEED HELP: Need Custom - Form, Digital Inventory and Emails

    Asked by mmartin077 on April 21, 2015 at 01:36 AM

    Hi,

     

    I am planning a webiste that offers massive discounts to buy real products for $1 on Amazon.com.  I get about 100 digital coupon codes (about 12 alpha characters) that are my "inventory".  Each code is unique.  The first 100 people that gives me their email address gets the coupon code.  Coupon codes allow users to go to Amazon.com and buy the product for $1 (plus shipping).

     

    I need the ability to:

    1.   Store 100 (or more) coupon codes

    2.   When someone gives me their email address (e.g. form), I send them the next coupon code in inventory.

    3.   Duplicate codes are never sent out.

    4.   When I run out of coupon codes, no more emails (or a sorry, all sold out email)

     

    Thoughts on the best way to implement this with Jot Form?


    I'm a small business, but I'm willing to pay a little bit for a widget / functionality that can do this.

     

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    If people need to submit their email address first before they get the coupon codes, then the best way would be to do the following:

    a. Create your form and add an autoresponder email to it: http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder. In the autoresponder email, add the coupon codes.

    b. Limit your form submissions to 100: http://www.jotform.com/help/137-How-to-Limit-Submissions-in-a-Form. This way, only 100 people can submit to the form. You can also prevent someone from re-submitting the form using our unique submission feature:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/64-How-to-Set-Unique-Submissions-on-a-Form

    In short, the limit would be your inventory. If you want to send another coupon codes, you have to do this in a new form so if you have 100 coupon codes, you have to create a hundred of forms too.

    This method should also give you control NOT to sent out duplicate coupons.

    Thanks

    Thank you for your creative idea.

    I could create a 100 forms, but how would i get each form to only show up one time and then after it was used, to never show up again.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Hello Michael,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want to allow one form to be submitted only once?

    Well in that case you can set the "Submission Limit" of your form to "1". Once the form is submitted, it will be automatically get disabled. 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
