Promo code exception lists can be used to pay partners different rates based on promo codes associated with actions they drove. You can also create exception lists based on item categories or SKUs.
From the left navigation bar, select [Menu] → Settings.
Under Exception Lists, select Promo Codes.
Select Add New Promo Code Exception List.
- List Name
Enter a name for this list—this will only appear internally to you and other account members; partners will not see it.
- Associate Event Type
Select the event type you want to associate with this exception list.
- Match Expression
[Advanced & Optional] Enable the system to match only on a part of the promo code via specifying a regular expression with ONE grouping. The value represented by the grouping will be matched against the promo code in this list. If you have a use case for regex but are unsure how to configure it, contact support. Promo codes entered on the exception list are case-insensitive, so be sure that your regex expressions (should you use any) are also case-insensitive. See this regex guide for help on how to do this.
Select Save and Add Items to continue.
