STEP-BY-STEP: How To Limit Number of Rebates and Promotions in ManyChat
Using a Counter on ManyChat
Why might you want to do this?
A counter will enable you to completely customize your promotions, giveaways, and rebate offerings, and dial in on the exact number of promotions you want to give away each day or week.
Think of this as transforming your ManyChat promotions into custom launches that will drip your promotions over time, versus turning on a fire hose. This will help you control your deeply discounted sales volume, and will ensure your resulting ranking sticks better!
The Old Way
In the past, we had to create our own backend loop in ManyChat to reset our counter each day. However, our team is amazing and created a brand new API endpoint that acts as a counter in that will reset each day automatically!
No need to deal with logic errors, messenger ref URLs, or endless reset loops in ManyChat.
In short, our API counter is easier to use and will make your life a whole lot easier when limiting the number of giveaways each day.
Let’s jump into how to make this happen!
The New Way – Adding The Seller.Tools API Counter
Custom Fields 101: Bot Fields vs. User Fields
To create a counter on ManyChat, we’re going to import a Custom Bot Field. Feel free to rename it whatever you’d like! If you’re wanting to create a counter for multiple products, I would recommend including your product name or ASIN in the name of your Counter Bot Field.
Adding the Counter to Your Promotions
Rinse and repeat
1. Download the template again, adding in your API Key and Max Daily Giveaways for your new product.
2. Rename all of your custom bot fields to include your product’s name in Settings > Custom Fields.
3. Add the updated action steps and condition steps to your new product’s flow, and you’re done!
