Check-in Deals API
Recommendations for using the API
These deals are basically a template that, onceapproved, can be quickly copied to children Places. This removes the need to createmultiple individual Check-in Deals with the same information across multiple childPlaces.
Create one prototype and then copy it to specicchildren Places. You’ll be able to segment stores any way you like through your ownPage/Place management applications, although you’ll need to keep track of thissegmentation on your own.
– Regional Check-in Deals (from large geographies, to state, local regions, city,neighborhood, etc.)– Store type Check-in Deals (e.g. Yvonne’s Pastries gets one deal, Yvonne’s SuperPastries gets a different type of deal, and Yvonne’s Subs gets no deal).– Driving foot trafc for testing purposes (i.e. run Check-in Deals only for marketsthat offer a certain product.)– A/B testing (e.g. see how specic Check-in Deals perform in similar test groupsbefore expanding it more nationally.)
There is an opportunity for all the metrics and stats from the copied Check-in Deals to be aggregated into the Prototype Check-in Deal report. Please note thatthis functionality is forthcoming.
* While creating Check-in Deals is much easier through the API, all Check-in Deals mustfollow our guidelines and be approved by Facebook before going live.
