Available on the Awesome plan

Offering coupons is a great way to encourage customers to write a review and share their experiences. It also helps turn a first-time buyer into a return customer.

With Judge.me, you can set up a flow to generate and send these coupons automatically after your customers leave a review.

Step 1: Enable coupons

  • In Judge.me admin, go to Settings > Rewards > Coupon Settings.
  • Enable coupons.
  • Add details for your coupons (optional).
  • Click Save settings.

Step 2: Add coupon details to your review request

You can then add the coupon details directly to your email content at Requests > Email templates or just use this variable {{ coupon_details }} in your email template.

By letting your customers know in the review request that they will get a coupon when they leave a review, they will be more incentivized to do so. Please also note that customers will receive 1 coupon for each qualified review.

Step 3: Set up your coupon

For Judge.me-generated coupons

If you're using Shopify, Judge.me can generate the discounts automatically for you. These discounts will show in your Shopify's Discounts dashboard as PriceRule-...

Each discount can have multiple coupon codes, which we will send to the reviewers.

To see the coupon code and discount code in Judge.me:

  • Go to Reviews > Reviews dashboard.
  • Choose a review you want.
  • Click the 3-dot icon > View more.

If the review is qualified for a coupon, you'll see this screen:

For the discount rules, we've already set up the conditions by default. 

  • If you want to customize them, go to Settings > Rewards > Review Coupons.
  • If you don't want to customize them, you can skip this step.

Step 4: Set up the reward conditions

Only when a review meets all these 3 conditions (for the reviewer, the review, and the ratings) will a coupon be created.

Reviewer Conditions

You can choose among these conditions to make sure a review is qualified:

  • any review with at least one photo or video
  • any review with at least one video

You can also set the minimum rating (1 to 5 stars) to be eligible for a reward.

Step 5. Customize the coupon email

When all conditions are met, we will send the reviewer the coupon code via email. To edit this email, go to Settings > Rewards > Coupon Email.
