Offer expiration notifications

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

To remind users to use offers before they expire, a default notification is triggered 48 hours before an offer expires. To trigger a notification, an offer must meet the following criteria:

  1. It must not have previously triggered an expiration notification on the user’s device.
  2. It must have a valid expiration datetime that's in the future, set in validTimeInterval.end.date.
  3. It must not have the writeable field disableExpirationNotification set to True. By default, this field is set to false.

The following screenshot shows an example of the default, unmodifiable notification:

  1. Offer expires (today, tomorrow, in [x] days)
  2. class.title
  3. class.titleImage

The header in the offer expiration notification cannot be customized.

Blackout hours

If the offer expiration notification is set to appear between 10PM and 6AM at the user’s local time, the offer appears either before or after this time period.

Custom offer expiration notification time

You can customize when the Offer expiration notification appears using the message.displayInterval.start.date field on OfferObjects or OfferClasses. If a custom notification time is set, the expiration notification triggers according to the message.displayInterval.start.date, instead of the default logic calculated from validTimeInterval.end.date. The following is a sample of a customized time for an expiration notification:

{
  “message”: {
   “messageType”: “expirationNotification”,
   “displayInterval”: {
     “start”: {
      “date”: datetime
     }
   }
  }
}

The displayInterval.start.date sets the time the notification appears. It can be set up to 30 days prior to the expiration date. If a time span greater than this is specified, the notification triggers at the 30 day mark. This message doesn't require a header and body field - if they're included they aren't used.
