How to Create a New Code Bank

William Harper Updated by William Harper


If you'd like to reward Advocates for successful referrals or provide Referred Friends with Incentives they can apply toward their first purchase, Friendbuy supports the ability for you to upload a list of codes into a code bank.  A code is pulled from a code bank and is dynamically inserted into a Reward Email when Advocates are eligible for a reward and inserted into a Friend Incentive Email when Referred Friends are eligible for a Friend Incentive. 

Friendbuy supports the following code types:

  • Coupon Codes - click here to download a template
  • Gift Cards (eCommerce Store) - click here to download a template
  • Reward Links (3rd Party Gift Cards/Cash) - click here to download a template
