GPS Coupon Features



The GPS Coupon feature is a great, location-based feature that allows users to accumulate points by checking in. You can encourage repeat visits and build customer loyalty by offering special deals for customers who return to your location frequently.



Note: The GPS functionality will only work if users have allowed your app to access their location. If you're having trouble checking in, go to your device's location services settings and verify that the app is allowed to access your location.


*Note: Updating apps that were last updated before April 2014 will cause users to lose all stamps.


Available on:

  • iOS
  • Android

Great for these industries:

  • Restaurants & Bars
  • Salons
  • Shops

Monetization ideas:

  • Encourage app users to come into your restaurant, shop, or salon by offering stamps for coupons and rewards

3. Name your feature, then click ADD. Your new feature will now appear in the left-side menu.

  • Edit the feature icon by clicking it, then selecting a new image from the fly-up menu.

Here you can rename the feature, add a radius and location details, and create coupons.

  • Mobile Header Image (640x264px) & Tablet Header Image (1536x634px): Click Browse to search for photos.

  • Ongoing Coupon: Choose if this coupon has a start and end date. 
  • Coupon Start & End Date: Select a start and end date for the coupon. 
  • Can this coupon be used again?: Decide if users can redeem this deal more than once. When this box is checked, the coupon will reset to 0 check-ins after users complete their check-ins and redeem the deal.

  • Hours Before Next Check-In: Choose how long a user must wait until they can check in again.
