When you create a new promotion using the PromoSimple platform you can now add Age and Geographical restrictions for entrants.

Promoting your giveaway

If you opt your campaign into the free Giveaways Network this data is used to target your campaign to potential entrants that are eligible to win. This also means that potential entrants can sort and access only those promotions that are open to their age group and geographical location, making it easier for them to find and enter your promotions.


Restricting entrants by age

When age and geographical restrictions are set this impacts the setup of the entry form. If Date of Birth is added to an entry form it will only contain dates that fall within the acceptable age group. For instance, if the campaign allows only entrants that are 20+, the entry form will calculate, from the start of the campaign, to determine what date an entrant must have been born and will only show dates for this field that are more than 20 years ago.

Restricting entrants by location

When locations are selected for the campaign these will be the only locations displayed within the Country and State fields within the entry form. For instance, if only United States is selected as a country and Florida and New York are excluded from the campaign, the entry form’s country dropdown will contain only United States and the State dropdown will not include Florida or New York. This ensures that entrants who are not located in the eligible locations cannot enter the campaign.

Selecting Age requirements

Just select the age ranges for eligible entrants. The default for this field is a minimum age requirement of 13 years old with no maximum. If your campaign requires entrants to be of a higher minimum age just select that age from the dropdown menu.

Selecting geographical requirements

By default campaigns are set to allow residents of the United States and Canada to be eligible to enter the promotion. To update this click on the country dropdown menu and select those countries which are allowed to enter the promotion. If the United States is selected as an option all 50 states and the District of Columbia are selected. You can uncheck any of these options to exclude them from the promotion.
