Yep! You'll just want to make sure you've added the new coupon field to Emma using the *Manage Fields* button on your Audience page, then import your list that includes the code associated with each recipient. Once those fields are added, they'll appear in the Personalize dropdown menu when you're editing your mailing. Hope this helps!

Thank you! Do I have to enter each item one at a time or am I just choosing the wrong type of field? (Tried "Select Multiple" and "Drop Down"). I was hoping to be able to import a csv with a list of codes to put in.

Thank you again for the response!

You don't need to enter each item one at at time if it's already on your csv file that you are going to import. You'll need to first create your member field using the Numeric answer. Then, when you import your file, you'll want to map the coupon code row to the Numeric answer field. Please let me know if you have any questions!

I just found this response to my exact same question.  However, I'm not sure I understand: "then import your list that includes the code associated with each recipient."  Does this mean that I need to have a csv that includes both customer names and the coupon codes and that the association must be made at that level?  What I'd like to do is use an existing customer list in MyEmma and insert a unique coupon code into the content for each customer mailed.  The codes are just a random sequence and I'm not particularly interested in which code is associated with which customer, just that each customer being emailed has a unique code from the list.  Thank you!

Hi! You’re right on — You’ll want a csv or Excel spreadsheet with your customers and the corresponding coupon codes, then you’ll import that list into your account and select Add & Update as your import method. Emma will recognize the email addresses as your members and update their records with the new information.

You can simply export your audience, make your changes on the spreadsheet and then import. Your spreadsheet might look something like this:

Thank you for your response.  So I must export audience and do a name-to-code association or can I simply import a csv with the coupon codes only and have them sequentially dropped into a mailing?

In order to assign each customer a coupon code, you’ll want to export your audience, add a code next to each email address and then import that list via Add & Update. Then, you can personalize your mailing using the custom personalization tag you created so that each recipient’s email includes their unique, assigned coupon code.

If we're wanting to have unique coupon codes for NEW email signups from a pop-up campaign on our site, and we want them to be included in the automated welcome email, is there a way to have a bunch of one-time use codes uploaded that aren't associated w/ particular names?

Hi! There isn't a way to pre-populate a field when a new subscriber signs up. What you might do is include a non-unique coupon code in your welcome autoresponder so that each new subscriber receives that code, and say it's NEWUSER1. However you use coupon codes in your point of sales system, you might be able to make it so that each email address associated with a customer can only use NEWUSER1 once.

That way, you don't have to have a code unique to them. How does that sound?

Another option might be to try using our open API to code a custom signup form (instead of using one from your Emma Audience page), and when you pass back your API calls, you could include a coupon code. We don't provide support for the API, so I'm not able to coach you through that process, but if you're API-savvy, you might look into taking this route.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Bulk generated discount codes put into emails..

How do I send people an email with a personalised discount code. I want one only they can use.
I use the Shopify bulk discounts to generate codes.
Can anyone help? Is this even possible. I use the Receiptful app and they let me do it.
