Promote - Vouchers
With ResDiary, it’s easy to create, promote, sell, redeem, and report on vouchers. Showcase the best your venue has to offer – add text, images, menus, links to your website and social media, and sell vouchers directly from your website, Dish Cult, or social media. You can also offer to deliver physical gift cards (with an optional fee to the buyer for shipment). ResDiary’s vouchers are sold via Stripe, and all proceeds go directly to your account.
To add vouchers to your monthly subscription, please click here and complete and submit this form.
The voucher section can be found by going to Promote > Vouchers , once it has been added to your subscription.
Create your voucher (Vouchers > Vouchers > Create Voucher).
Once you hit ''save and continue'', you'll be able to preview your vouchers and create more vouchers.
If you wish to sell vouchers, you'll need to make sure you have linked a stripe account to your diary.

Using your Vouchers.
1. The Voucher Report
Promote > Vouchers > Sales Report
Or else you can access this report by going to promote > vouchers > view report.
You can of course export your data here by clicking the export button.
2. Sell Vouchers.
There are 3 ways to do this.
1. Has a customer popped in or do you need to sell a complimentary voucher for a guest?
Go to vouchers and hit ''generate voucher codes''.
Here you can choose the voucher type and the number of each voucher you would like to send and add the email addresses of those customers who need to receive them.
Please note, this will show a payment type of ''none'' in your voucher report.
2. You can also go to vouchers > sell vouchers.
Here you can choose the payment method you would like to record against the sale and the voucher reference codes will generate for you so you can add these to your own email or physical vouchers to post out.
Please note, by using this process - no email will be triggered to a customer.
3. Of course guests can always go to your website and/or dishcult listing and purchase vouchers from there too if they prefer.
You can find your online voucher portal link by going to promote > vouchers > My voucher URL.
3. Redeem/Extend or Resend vouchers.
Once a guest uses their voucher, you must redeem it to make sure they cannot use the same voucher again.
This can be done by adding the voucher reference code to the the payments screen on the internal booking process where the booking has an outstanding payment/ deposit on the booking.
This can also be done by going to promote > vouchers > search voucher references. > enter the voucher reference number > search and from there you can redeem/extend or resend a voucher. Please see below;
Note, if you try and redeem a voucher that has already been redeemed, the redeem/extend or resend voucher option will not show and you will see when this voucher was previously redeemed and which user actioned it.
NOTE - If multiple vouchers are purchased on the one transaction then only 1 voucher will be sent with the separate voucher codes on it.
