Generating and Managing App and Product Coupons

You can generate coupons that enable your users to download your service app without paying for it at the time of the download transaction.  

  • Coupons can only be registered to commercially distributed service apps.
  • Coupons can only be issued to users in selected distribution countries AND only up to a maximum number (1,000 or less) specified for each country. The service app must manage the number of coupons that have been issued and stop issuing coupons upon reaching the maximum number.
  • The time period in which coupons can be issued and redeemed can start any time in the future and last as long as 28 days.
  • Coupons can be cancelled or removed at any time during the coupon time period, which stops coupons being issued.
  • The service app must manage providing end users with how a coupon (also be referred to as a "voucher") affects purchases and with coupon codes to be specified during purchase in order to redeem the coupon.
To generate, review, and manage commercial service app coupons:
  • Ensure the service app has completed registration and has been submitted for certification.
    For details, see the Samsung Seller Office Service Application Registration Guide.
  • Get the following (if applicable): information needed to make appropriate field entries.
  • Enter service app information in the service app default language or in English where specified.
