Offers Extension for Groups / Communities Plugin enables group owners to showcase offers on their Group.

Offer Properties:
  • Availability of Offers to Groups can be made dependent on their packages.
  • Offers contain a title, description, URL and photo.
  • End Date: Offers can be made to expire on a date, or have no expiry period.
  • Coupon Codes can be associated with offers for their redemption. Apart from In-store Offers, Coupon Codes also enable Group Admins to create Online Offers.
  • No. of Claims: Group Admins can specify the number of times their offers can be obtained by users. They can also set unlimited claims for their offer.
  • Members can get offers that they see on your site by clicking on the "Get Offer" links for the offers. This will send the offer with its details to the user via email. If the offer is an online one and has a coupon code associated, then the user will be able to use the coupon code emailed to avail the offer. For in-store offline offers, users will be able to take a print of the offer email or take it on mobile and show it at the store. It is thus now easier for users to avail offers.
