Produced by the Joint Industry Coupon Committee (JICC), Voluntary Guidelines for Digital Coupons, shares model digital coupon practices in order to ensure a positive experience for consumers, proper settlement for retailers and effective and well-controlled promotions for manufacturers.
The Guidelines include:
The Guidelines highlight the key distinctions between digital and paper coupons, including the presence of barcode data, distribution methods, consumer acquisition and presentment, purchase validation and offer set-up at point of sale.
The JICC is made up of member companies from NGA, GMA, and FMI. The JICC considers the Voluntary Coupon Guidelines complimentary to the GS1 Digital Coupon Management Standard Specification. The JICC plans to work with the GS1–U.S. Member Organization to ensure clear communication of both important standards documents.
