Hi,

We are trying to create an offer code for a partner that gives their clients a month free and then 20% off our product. Is there a way to have an offer code or some combination of offer code and introductory offering that gives a user both a month free and a discount?

Basically, the flow would be - a user comes on to our app referred by a partner. We to set up some relationship with the partner where THEIR users specifically get both:

  • 1 month free

  • 20% off our list price.

For further context, we use the in-app offer code redemption sheet currently for offer codes. Are their better options than this for partner offer codes in an iOS app?

You could have there be two separate products for these users. 

 

Product 1 would just have the week free trial set up in the app store, then product 2 could be a month free trial and then the actual price of the product would be a 20% discount.

Hi @Michael Fogel , not meaning to hijack this thread but just wanted to clarify this:

You can also apply promotional offers for discounts on the product so you dont need to use offer codes. More information on that could be found here: https://www.revenuecat.com/docs/ios-subscription-offers

Given that IOS promotional offers have the eligibility criteria that a user has to be currently/previous subscribed. Does this include users currently on a free trial (via the introductory offer)?

Since a free trial is technically an existing user, I believe that this would include users on a free trial as well. Promo offers though are not applied automatically and would need to be implemented accordingly

Hey @jake lynch ,

 

You could do this by attaching an introductory offer to the product for a free trial, then simply having an offer code or other subscription offer offered to the customers or applied after the free trial is done.

We \have more information on subscription offers which can be found here: https://www.revenuecat.com/docs/subscription-offers#setting-up-subscription-offers

Would that apply to only users who fit a specific criteria? How would we handle that in the app? AFAICT, if we use our own mechanism for gating access for a feature based off of a code, we get rejected from the app store for violating their policy around providing external methods for payments.

Offer codes are supported by the App Store, so this shouldn't cause an issue with having the app get rejected.

Yes, sorry I’m saying when we used a separate mechanism to gate offer codes. 

 

I’m not sure how we would give a different promotional offer to some users than others based off of if they used an offer code or not. 

 

So we have two groups:

1. Normal users → 1 week free, then pay subscriptions

2. Offer code users → 1 month free, then pay 20% discounted subscription. 

I don’t know how to get the offer code to provide BOTH the 1 month free and then the 20% off. If that’s not possible then I don’t know how to specifically target the users with an offer code with a promotional code.
