How to Set Up CreateSpace Discount Codes:

1. Log in to your CreateSpace Member Account at using your e-mail address and account password

2. Click on the title's name you wish to edit

3. On the Project Homepage, click on "Channels" in the Distribute section

4. On the Channels page, select "Discount Codes" under CreateSpace eStore

5. Click the link that reads "To create a new discount code click here.” This will create a unique code that can be used across titles if desired. (If you have previously created a code that you wish to apply to a new title, you may skip the step of creating a new code)

6. To apply the code to a title, copy this new code into memory (command-C), then return to the previous page

7. Paste the code into the "Discount" table. Then set the pop-up to "Discounted Price" and enter the dollars off in the field (e.g., $5 off), or set this to a percentage off (e.g., 40% off). Remember that discount amounts must never drop the price below the minimum price of the title. You can add up to three new discount codes at a time

8. To complete the process, click on the “Save Changes” button

Your discount code is now ready to use, and the discount you offer will be deducted on orders placed using that code.
