How many Daily Deal Campaigns can I post for my business?

Once you have been authorized to post daily deals as a Participating Merchant, you can post as many daily deal campaign offers as you like.

We suggest starting off with just one daily deal campaign offer at a time at first until you get familiar with the process and feel comfortable managing your daily deal campaign.  This will help you learn the ins and outs and keep you from getting overwhelmed in the beginning.

Once you feel comfortable with the process you are free to post multiple concurrent daily deal campaign offers.  This is a great way to highlight a particular product or service or offering and keep it separated from other offers.  This allows you to track which offers work best for your particular type of business.

Test it out, have fun and remember that the better your offer, the better response you will have.

How Do I Verify My Business Checking Account With PayPal?

PayPal requires you to verify your business checking account before they will allow you to receive payments from your Daily Deal Offers. This is their way of making sure you are who you say you are and to protect you from fraudulent transactions.

How Do I Redeem My Sold Daily Deal Vouchers?

It is important to properly redeem your daily deal vouchers so that they cannot be presented more than once.

There are two ways to redeem your sold daily deal vouchers. The first way is to use a QR Code Scanner (as shown in the video below) to instantly scan and redeem the voucher. This requires you to install a QR Code Scanner on your smartphone. The benefit to using this option is that it allows you to instantly redeem the voucher which prevents it from being used again.

The second way to redeem your sold vouchers is to login to your DailyDeals.ShopRVA.com account and go to your Dashboard. This video here will walk you thru step-by-step on how to use this method.

What are Daily Deal Vouchers and how are they used?

Vouchers are dynamically generated offers or incentives that specifically pertain to your business listing.  Think of a Daily Deal Voucher as either a Receipt or Proof Of Purchase given in exchange for your purchase.  

As a business owner, you can use Vouchers to set a limited number of available Daily Deal Offers that helps you track how many of your incentive vouchers are still available, have been sold or redeemed.  Once they’re all gone, they’re gone.  You get to set the number of vouchers you want to use along with whatever offers your want to create and use as incentives.

You can also use vouchers to help fill in slow hours, days or weeks of the month by creating a sense of urgency or a limited time offer or an incredible time-sensitive savings offer by specifying the time, days, weeks or months that the offer must be used in.  Best of all, you get to specify all of the voucher terms and conditions.

How much does it cost to post an offer on ShopRVA Daily Deals?

The short answer is that it is FREE to post your offers on ShopRVA DAILY DEALS.  

However, when someone purchases one of your offers and completes their payment transaction, SHOP RVA, LLC retains a 20% selling fee of the DAILY DEAL sale amount on each offer that sells (known as a back-end fee).   Otherwise, you owe nothing if none of your offers sell.
