Ecommerce developer hopes to drive sales with ‘#SpreadJoy’ hashtag, discount code

Bold Commerce, an ecommerce developer, is leading an effort called “Spread Joy” that is designed as a way for online stores, especially small and medium sized businesses, to share special offers during the coronavirus crisis.

Using the hashtag “#SpreadJoy,” the company is inviting any online store to share special offers — whether they be discounts, free shipping or other deal — via social media using that hashtag.

Stores are also encouraged to use the code “SPREADJOY” to deliver the discount, though this isn’t required.

The effort isn’t limited to stores using a particular platform — it’s open to anyone who sells online.
