Create a Promotion

You can run several types of promotions. Learn more about the types of promotions and their benefits.

Amazon restricts the following categories from certain kinds of promotional offers:

  • Books, Music, Video, and DVD (BMVD) products: Excluded from promotions. 

If you have an existing promotion that you want to use as a model for a new promotion, you can duplicate that promotion.

Choose the type of promotion you would like to run

In your seller account, under Advertising, click Manage Promotions. On the Create a Promotion tab, click the Create button for the promotion type you want to offer.

After you select the type of promotion you’d like to create, specify the conditions for your promotion:
