Our new Promo Codes feature will allow you to send out custom codes for discounts and generate one-time use codes for giveaways and review copies. It’s been one of our most-requested features and we think we’ve figured out a great way to use it.
Under your published story options, you’ll now see a tab for ‘Promo Codes’.
The first option, Discount Codes, allows you to set a code phrase along with the amount of the discount to apply and a date for when the code should expire. Once a code is added, it shows up in a list showing live data on when it gets used and how much time left until it expires. Expired codes will be archived at the bottom of the list.
The second option, Free Copies, lets you provide individual copies with a secure, generated code that expires within 30 days of activation or if canceled manually. These codes can be used to send out review/galley copies of your ebook or for free giveaways.
These new options are an extension of our goal to help authors better promote their ebooks and reach new readers.
