Email Payouts are great for issuing coupon codes to members. If you choose to use a static coupon code, you can put it directly in the email. You can also use a list of coupons codes, a coupon list, or automatically generated codes. Coupon lists contain a series of unique coupon codes that are only issued once.
Email Payouts allow you to offer coupon codes as rewards. The coupon code, or a Rewards merge tag, can be placed in the Payout Email. This will be emailed to the Member or Referral once their reward has been earned and issued.
Coupon lists can be used if you want to issue unique, one-time use coupon codes for Members to redeem. Once a coupon code is issued, it's moved from the Open list to the Distributed list. Once distributed, a coupon code cannot be redistributed.
