Paid Android App Coupons

You can promote your 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.

 

For each paid Android app that is normally distributed, you can generate coupon codes (also referred to as vouchers) for one or more distribution countries, up to a total of 5,000 coupons. Any time your app has fewer than 5,000 'Waiting' or 'Usable' coupons, you can generate new coupons for any country.

Your coupons' app must be in the 'For Sale' state, not have an 'Updating' submission, and not have any 'Waiting' or 'OnGoing' discount sets.

You must manage sending coupon codes to your customers (for example, in your marketing emails), and inform your customers that they enable free download, and how to redeem them.

Note: To redeem coupons, customers must have an Android device and a Samsung account with a credit card registered. However, the credit card will not be charged.

Each coupon code is valid and can be redeemed:

  • After the generation waiting period (typically 24 hours) and before the coupon's end date.
  • Is in the 'Usable' status at the time of redemption.
  • By a customer who is in the coupon's country at the time of redemption.

After a coupon code has been redeemed one time, it becomes invalid.

After you delete distribution countries with valid coupon codes, they become invalid.

All of an app's coupon codes become invalid:

  • After the coupon's end date.
  • After you change the coupon's app from a paid app to a free app.
  • After you or Samsung suspend distribution of the coupon's app.
  • After you end your Seller Office account.
