This type defines the fields that describe a promotion. This includes all the information about a promotion except for the listings that are a part of the promotion.

Type that uses PromotionDetail


Call that uses PromotionDetail


A unique code that buyers can use during checkout to receive a discount. The code must be unique across eBay.
This is the seller-defined "tag line" for the offer, such as "Save on designer shoes." Tag lines appear under the "offer-type text" that is generated for a promotion and displayed under the offer tile that is shown on the seller's All Offers page and on the promotion's event page.

Note: Offer-type text is a teaser that's presented throughout the buyer's journey through the sales flow and is generated by eBay. This text is not editable by the seller—it's derived from the settings in the discountRules and discountSpecification fields—and can be, for example, "Extra 20% off when you buy 3+".

Maximum length: 50

Required if you are configuring ORDER_DISCOUNT or MARKDOWN_SALE promotions (and not valid for VOLUME_DISCOUNT promotions).

Required for CODED_COUPON, MARKDOWN_SALE, and ORDER_DISCOUNT promotions, and not applicable for VOLUME_DISCOUNT promotions, this field is a URL that points to an image for the promotion.
