Promotion Codes

Promotion codes are how you can make your coupon discounts available to your customers.

Promotion codes are a customer-redeemable code for a coupon.

The promotionCode object makes it convenient to issue codes for your customers to be able to use your coupons and get discounts. They can be used to create multiple codes for a single coupon.
