Using promo codes for FS packages and upgrades

You can use promo codes to your FS packages and upgrades to offer discounts off your regular pricing. By adding a promo code, this will also activate the promo code box on your websites checkout/listing process.

Important things to remember about promo codes!
  • A promotion code can only be used when paying for and creating a new listing. A customer cannot use the promotion code when purchasing upgrades after they have already purchased or created their listing.
  • You can create duplicate promo codes for primary packages or upgrade items, but only within their category.
  • Only ONE promotion code can be used by the customer when creating a listing, so promotions cannot be combined.
  • If your promotion will result in an amount due of $0, or free, then you must have the "None (Free Listing)" payment method configured and enabled.
