Rolling Coupon Expiration

With our November release we are introducing a new type of Coupon Expiration that is based on the number of days versus a fixed date. This allows you to have more control over your coupons, and also create a sense of urgency if the coupon is expiring in 30 days.

For example: If you set a coupon to expire in 30 days, this means the expiration will be generated at the time of the coupon being sent to the customer. So if the customer writes a review on Nov 1, 2018 and the expiration is 30 days, than his coupon expiration will show as Nov 30, 2018.

To learn more about our Coupon feature, check out our support guide.


New Badge Designs

We're happy to announce that 2 new badge designs have been added into the system. You can fully customize the star color, type, background and text.

The badge page will also allow you to set a custom link. When a user clicks the badge, they will be taken to this custom link versus your profile page.

To see the new badges click on: Trust Elements > Trust Badge
