Obtaining Promo Codes (iOS)

Our customers often ask us how to go about getting promo codes for their apps. These need to be requested by the iTunes account holder, not a regular development account. The steps are simple:

  1. Log into the iTunes Connect account as a team leader
  2. From the main page select “Manage Your Applications”
  3. Select the app icon of the app to generate promo codes for
  4. On the current version of the app select  “View Details”
  5. Select the “Promo Codes” blue bar in the top right
  6. Enter the number of codes you wish to generate.  Only request what you need since there is a 50 limit for every release of the app.
  7. If you want to view previously issued codes select the “View History” button in the top left

  8. Accept the terms and agreements
  9. Download the text file with the codes
  10. Distribute codes to users

Note: Codes only last for 4 weeks (28 days) so don’t just request all 50 at once.
