Call that uses ItemPromotionResponse


If set to true, the discount is applied only when the buyer purchases multiple quantities of a single item being discounted. Otherwise, the discount applies to multiple quantities of any items being discounted. Different variations of a multi-variation item are considered to be the same item. Note that this flag is not relevant if the inventoryCriterion container identifies a single listing ID for the discount.
This sets the budget for the CODED_COUPON discount type. Supported values range from 100-1000000. Supported currency codes include USD, GBP, EUR, and AUD.

Note: The budget value for an active or paused discount can not be decreased.

Note: The Currency Code for 'budget' must be the same as the Currency Code for 'maxDiscountAmount'.

The configuration of a coded coupon discount.
Required for CODED_COUPON discounts, this is the seller-defined "tag line" for the offer, such as "Save on designer shoes." The tag line appears under the "offer-type text" that is generated for the discount and is displayed under the offer tile that is shown on the seller's All Offers page and on the event page for the discount. This tag line is not used with volume pricing discounts.

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+".
