The Purpose of Promo Code
The Promo code is displayed on your website and represents the visit number. The value of the visit number is contained in the roistat_visit cookie. The visit number links the visit of the client on your website with the client’s request so you can get the information about the marketing channel the brought you the client. The promo code is used when the request was made offline (e.g. during a phone call).
Example: a client wants to buy some items, goes to your website and dials the phone number of your online store to consult and make an order. During the phone call, your manager creates a request in your CRM system, and the client tells him the promo code number that is displayed on your website. The manager must enter this code in the roistat field in your CRM or CMS sytem.
