Guidelines For Creating Single-Use Coupon Code

This article helps Amazon Seller to enhance their sale and ranking.

In this article, I have explained the complete use of coupon codes and their types.


1. Coupon codes for discounting your product for friends and family.

This is the best way to get reviews from your people without much effort. If you are new to Amazon this can help you to grow your business.

2. Coupon codes for product launches.

You can give heavy discounts when you want to sell your product to a large number of people. In this way, you can sell a bunch of Amazon products that can be easily reviewed.

Now I will explain the uses of Coupon codes.

There are two types of coupon codes

 1.  Single-Use Coupon Codes– These are the codes that can be used only for one time. These coupon codes are useful in product launch for giving coupon codes to each individual and it can not be shared with anyone.

2.  Standard Coupon Codes/Regular Coupon Codes– These types of coupon codes are for everyone. You can create these coupon codes and anyone can use them. This type of coupon code is risky and it is advisable to not use these coupon codes when you want to offer large discounts.


1. First thing is to log into your Amazon Seller’s account and you will land on the homepage.

2. Click on “Advertising” from the upper section of the homepage. Now you will be given two options and you have to select the “Promotion” option.

3. Now you will land on the next page in which you can see different options. In this, you need to choose the “Percentage off” section.

4. On the next page, you need to fill all the details. I will break down each section to elaborate on each step.

Next, you need to choose the product you just created from drop-down menus.

Claim Code Combinability

Claim code combinability setting is important to understand otherwise it will affect your sales and profit. It will give you two options and these options relate to how your single-use promo code can be used together with any other applicable promo codes.

  • Preferential
  • Unrestricted.

Preferential: By using this option, a customer can be able to redeem only one promo code. They can add more than one to their purchase, but only the promotion with the highest value will be applied.

Unrestricted:  This option doesn’t have any restrictions that mean customers can use as many active promotions and that is why it is risky to set.

Can Customers Combine Promo Codes and Amazon Coupons?
Yes, we can use the Amazon coupon in combination with your promo code.

There is a need to keep in mind that claim code combinability will only affect promo codes. If you have a coupon on your listing then you can’t stop customers from using this, in combination with your promo code.

Thus, if you are offering a 10% coupon on your listing, and a 90%-off promo code, then customers will be able to get your product free of cost. Ultimately, it will offer 100% off.

There is no way to prevent these from being combined. But, if you plan to run high-value promo code campaigns therefore you can prevent it by turning off any Amazon coupon promotions.
