Hello Game Dev community!

Based on what I've read over the Internet, it seems that the following question has many answers:

How can I create a website where users can redeem codes that I've generated? I'm looking for a system/service that will allow me to generate such codes, and to manage my giveaways.

Any good recommendations? Solutions?

Thanks!

1) pick a serverside scripting language
2) pick a database server
3) generate a bunch of random strings.
4) store the random strings in the database.
5) create a website with a form.
6) write a serverside script that checks if whatever the user entered into the form is in the database.
7) mark the code as used, give the user whatever it is the user should get.
8) profit ?
I don't suffer from insanity, I'm enjoying every minute of it.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

Thanks Simon!!!

 

It seems that I will have to learn some PHP, Python or ASP. 

 

I appreciate your reply!

If they are just proportional codes, and there aren't that many, you might just forget the database and hard-code your redeem codes in your server scripts.

There are also be some tools for this built in to banking tools, like Google Checkout. That would be my first choice, if it's suitable to your use.
