Understanding coupon errors

Approximately 6 hours before your coupon start time, our system starts running a number of validation rules on your coupon to make sure it offers a good value to our customers. These rules are continuously enforced throughout the duration your coupon is active. If one or more of the ASINs in your coupon fail any of these rules, we disable the coupon offer on that ASIN and activate the coupon on the rest of the ASINs that pass validation. Here are some of the errors that you might see on your dashboard and what you can do to remedy them.

Inventory error

We temporarily excluded this ASIN from your coupon due to insufficient inventory.

This error means that you don't have enough inventory to accommodate the customer demand your coupon might generate. When this happens, we disable the coupon from the subject ASIN.

What can you do if you see this error?

Send in more inventory. We will automatically reactivate the coupon offer on this ASIN when you have sufficient inventory.

Star rating is below 3.0

Coupons require a minimum star rating of 2.5 for products with 1-4 reviews and 3.0 for products with 5+ reviews. This error message indicates that the ASIN is not meeting this rule. Products that do not yet have any review are eligible.
