How to Sell on Groupon

Your Groupon deal online and in our mobile app, plus the Merchant Center dashboardGroupon is more than daily deal emails—we offer customized marketing plans for merchants of all kinds. Whether you want to quickly reach a large audience or bring in a capped number of customers each month, Groupon can help you reach your business goals.

Here’s a short guide to promoting your business on Groupon:

Fill out this quick online form and a rep will follow up with you. In the meantime, spend some time on to learn more about all of our offerings.

Our account reps provide guidance based on analysis of past promotions, and you decide how many new customers you want to bring in. Your assigned rep ensures that your offer meets your goals without exceeding your max capacity.

As the big day approaches, your rep will provide helpful tips and tools to make sure you’re prepared when the first Groupon customer comes in. If you’re in the hospitality industry, Breadcrumb offers an iPad-based restaurant POS that’s easier to use than legacy POS systems.

The days leading up to your feature are also a great time to make sure your staff is up to speed on redemption methods and get the word out in your community. Posting on Facebook and Twitter as well as spreading the word to your friends and family can help generate buzz about your deal.

Groupon provides you with information about your customers through the Merchant Center’s tracking features– giving you insight into customer demographics such as age, gender, and location, as well as how much the customers spent beyond the value of the Groupon voucher. Plus, you’ll be able to view direct feedback from customers so you know what is and isn’t working. And, now you can review, edit, and tweet customer comments directly from the customer feedback section.

We know you have a lot of questions about Groupon. Please refer to the links above for all your answers. Remember, you can always call 888-582-4354 and speak to a Groupon Specialist.

  • Hello Samantha, What is the criteria for qualifying for groupon goods? I have a website and have had one for a while. We are strictly online retail and sell electronic cigarettes and accessories countrywide. I have talked to more than one representative so far and it seems no one is giving a straight answer. As you have stated before groupon goods is not taking new merchandise at this time. But I’ve heard the same thing since last year over and over.

    Honestly all I want to know is what do I need as a online retailer to qualify for groupon goods? What exactly is disqualifying me? We have the website, popular product, inventory, customer service, history, and great markup already. I just need someone to be more specific. Feel free to email me with some private advice if possible. Would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance for your help Samantha.

  • Hi Samantha C.

    I am looking into starting a company selling phone cases but solely through groupon. The requirements suggest that groupon is for businesses currently operating elsewhere looking to sell a product at a reduced price. As there isnt a current business or product being sold elsewhere there is no selling price so a discounted price isnt possible. Also on the forms a website is required but as I have previously mentioned I am not looking to sell elsewhere. Is this possible and if so how could I go about it i.e. does the business have to be limited or can it be a sole trader?

  • Hello Samantha,

    As you can see from my site url, I design and sell one of a kind pieces of jewelry. I have done reasonably well, but I really wish to extend my shops marketing plan.

    Would my items be a reasonable fit for Groupon? Although each piece is a “one of a kind”, my thoughts were to run Groupon campaigns on item types…necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc. My thoughts were that by offering one of kind items on a “first come first served” basis, it would entice a potential customer to act fast.

    Look forward to your comments.
    Thank-you in advance.

    I am an aspiring eBook writer currently working on an educational “how-to” guide book series for customers who purchase consumer products in various product categories.

    I am researching to determine if it is possible to sell my eBooks through Groupon? (Note: My wife and I are self proclaimed “Grouponites” and have loved using your services for a a few years now.)

    So I thought about becoming a merchant with Groupon, but in order for to move forward, I needed to know if the products posted on Groupon, have to be physical products only, or can they also be digital?

    Thanks in advance for your wisdom!
