Viewing Createspace Coupon Codes Stats
To view your coupon codes and how many people redeemed them, simply go to step 5 and click the Discount Codes hyperlink at the beginning of the second paragraph. If you want to remove a coupon code from your book, then click the box below Delete next to the code you wish to remove. Click Save Changes to delete the code.
Remember that discount amounts must never drop the selling price below the publish-at rate of the title. You can add up to three new discount codes at a time.
