Add voucher codes manually


Note: Due to security reasons only admin users are able to create new voucher codes.

Please log in to your Pegasus account and choose the desired publication. Open the "Vouchers" section via the "SERVICES" tab in the top menu. 

Click the "NEW VOUCHER" button to manually add a new voucher code. In order to create and save the new code please provide the following information:

Field Description
Code The voucher code entered by the customer to unlock one or more issues. The code can be up to 40 characters long and consist of letters, numbers and special characters. 
Subscriptions / Edition

A voucher code can grant free access to either a single edition of this publication OR one of your subscriptions.

Subscriptions, which are available as in-app purchases in your app may not be selected for manual voucher codes. Instead please create a separate subscription (e.g. "Voucher Codes") with an unlimited duration. After you have done that you can select this subscription when creating a voucher code and define the start and end date for this voucher. The user will get access to all the content that was published in between those dates.  

Start/End Date 

This option is only relevant, if the code grants access to the subscription you specifically created for manual voucher codes. Like already states in the step before, provided start and end dates allow for further customization of the running time of this voucher code. If you want to have either an open start or end date please enter "00.00.00" and save the code. 


Maximum number of devices on which this voucher code can be redeemed. If left blank, the value will be set to "unlimited".
