*When promotions aren't visible in the SiteLink Web Edition Client, it means that managers cannot apply them at their discretion. That doesn't mean that it's impossible for customers to get their promotions they're expecting. When a technology vendor (like SpareFoot) is integrated with SiteLink, the integration is typically a "push-pull" which makes it possible for "invisible" promotions to be assigned to customer's accounts.
Here's how this works for SpareFoot (and most other technology vendors):
- PULL: We "pull" information from SiteLink (your units, prices, promotions) hourly, and we display this information on your SpareFoot listing and in MySpareFoot.
- PUSH: When a customer reserves one of your units on SpareFoot, we "push" a reservation into SiteLink. The customer's reservation is already associated with the promotion the customer saw on SpareFoot. So, even though your manager wouldn't have access to apply this promotion to a walk-in customer, the SpareFoot customer gets this promotion automatically.
This is pretty tricky, so we've included an example of how this functionality works. In this example, we've added the promotion "first month free" on the "SpareFoot Only" channel.
