Coupon Code

The code customers use to redeem a coupon for this promotion. Coupon codes are case-sensitive.

Note: You must save a new promotion before you can add a coupon code to it.

You cannot edit the code after you create it but you can delete it.

Coupon codes must be unique across all promotions, even those that are not enabled.

Priority (required)

The priority of the promotion. Promotions are applied in order of priority, with low priority numbers applied first. Oracle Commerce Cloud Service sorts the promotions by the value of this property.

A promotion’s priority is evaluated against other promotions of the same type. For example, item discounts are evaluated only against other item discounts, not against order discounts.

If an order qualifies for multiple promotion types, item discounts are applied first, followed by order discounts, then shipping discounts.


Specifies whether this promotion is available to be used with a qualifying order. This setting is turned on by default, but a promotion’s availability also depends on the start and end dates you set. If Enabled is turned off, the promotion cannot be used regardless of its start and end dates.
