Generate and Manage Paid Android App Coupons

You can support your promotions for paid Android apps by having Samsung generate coupon codes, and sending them to potential customers, who redeem them to download your paid app for free.


You can generate up to 1,000 coupon codes (also referred to as coupons and vouchers) for each paid Android app that is distributed in Galaxy Apps and is not currently suspended, terminated, being updated, or has a discount applied.

  • During coupon registration, you specify:
    • One or more countries (that the paid app is being distributed to) where customers can redeem coupons.
    • For each country, the maximum number of coupons that can be redeemed by customers in the country.
      Note:  Whenever there are fewer than 1,000 coupon codes with the status 'Waiting' or 'Usable' for all countries, you can change the maximum number for any country, up to a maximum of 1,000 for all countries.
    • Start date (any time in the future) and end dates (up to 28 days after the start date) when the coupon can be redeemed.
      Note:  Coupons can become invalid before the end date (see below).
  • During coupon distribution, developers must:
    • Manage sending coupon codes to users (for example, in their marketing emails or through their app UI).
    • Provide customers with information about how a coupon affects purchases.
  • Coupon redemption:
    • Each coupon can be redeemed:
      • When the coupon code is valid (with the 'Usable' status) at the time of redemption.
      • By one customer who is in one the countries specified during coupon registration.
      • While the coupon code remains valid:
        • After the waiting period (typically 24 hours after generation).
        • Before the valid coupon end date.
        • Unless the developer updates the registration information or terminates the distribution of the coupon's app.
        • Unless Samsung suspends the distribution of the coupon's app.
