What is Voucherify?

Voucherify is an API-first promotion engine for digital teams. With our programmable building blocks you can launch and manage promotions personalized with customer and session data. This includes coupons, gift cards, in-cart promotions, giveaways, referral, and loyalty programs.

Voucherify offers a REST-based API and a web dashboard to create and manage promotional campaigns. Our dedicated endpoints help you deliver personalized incentives to any channel, device, and e-commerce solution while keeping your data in secure, highly available environments. This is achieved with real-time data synchronization with CRM, product inventory, distribution channels, and any customer touchpoints.

The majority of development work is required at the beginning:

  • Connecting the promotion engine to the checkout.
  • Synchronizing customer data.
  • Connecting distribution channels like email.
  • Integrating with BI tools.

When the integration is done, you can use API to automate and scale campaigns.

The easiest way to create campaigns is to use the Campaign Manager you can find in the dashboard. However, some advanced workflows may require you to use the API and develop your integration over time.

This is why the crucial part is to align your implementation priorities with your business goals.
This guide will help you plan this process with your developers and estimate the expected delivery time.
