Digital Gift Cards

Introduction

The Incentives API lets you create and distribute Amazon Gift Card claim codes quickly and as your business needs them. You can buy Amazon Gift Card claim codes using a web service, and can distribute these codes to your customers in a way that suits your busuiness. This document describes how developers can use the AGCOD API to create Amazon Gift Card claim codes. You can use these codes in many ways, including (but not limited to):

  1. Presenting the gift card to a user in-app
  2. Sending the customer the gift code via SMS
  3. Sending an email to the customer in your own bespoke template
  4. Mailing the customer a print out of the gift card code
  5. Resale to other businesses

Operations

Your code makes signed HTTP POST requests to our endpoints to create or cancel claim codes. (We do not accept SOAP requests.) The body of your HTTP requests will contain JSON or XML. Every request to an Incentives API operation endpoint must be digitally signed using your Incentives API security credentials and the Signature Version 4 signature algorithm."

Operation Description
CreateGiftCard If sufficient funds are in the pre-payment account, deducts the amount and responds with a live gift card claim code, along with other transaction details.
CancelGiftCard Cancels a live gift card claim code if gift card has not been claimed by an Amazon customer, and has not expired.

The following table describes concepts and elements you will use when calling these endpoints:

Item Description
partnerId A unique identifier (CASE SENSITIVE, 1st letter is capitalized and the next four are lower case) provided by the Amazon team. This value appears in the payload of every AGCOD Gateway request.
creationRequestId A unique identifier for every CreateGiftCard request. You must generate a new value for every Create request (except for retries). (See notes below.)
CreateGiftCard response and CancelGiftCard response Each request to these endpoints returns a response your code must examine and may need to store.
Transaction A transaction is any request-response that results in the Create/Cancel of a gift card within Amazon systems.

To keep the creationRequestId globally unique, follow these requirements:

  • Generate an alphanumeric value that is unique within your system. This ID can have up to 40 alphanumeric characters.
  • Begin the creationRequestId value with your partnerID.
Example
If your partnerID is Amzn1, your creationRequestId must start with Amzn1 and any additional characters you would like in your ID (example: Amzn154321). Since the API is idempotent, if a request is sent in with a creationRequestId that was used prior, the Incentives API will return the original status that was created the first time the creationRequestId was used.

CreateGiftCard

The CreateGiftCard operation creates a live gift card claim code and deducts the amount from the pre-payment account. The response contains details you must store. The creationRequestId value uniquely identifies each creation request, along with other details like the amount, currency, etc. (in addition to the meta-data about that request, authentication info, etc.) To perform this operation, the following steps must occur:

  1. Customer sends a CreateGiftCard request to the Incentives API.
  2. Amazon confirms sufficient funds for the request by checking the pre-payment account.
  3. Amazon deducts the order amount and responds with a synchronous CreateGiftCard response message that contains gcClaimCode (the live gift card claim code) and gcExpirationDate (expiration date, does not apply to GCs created in the US, Canada, and Australia).
  4. Your code must store the creationRequestId, amount, and currencyCode values, and must handle the gcClaimCode securely. See Data Storage Guidelines for details.

This operation is idempotent, so if the Incentives API receives more than one request with the same creationRequestId, only the first request will result in the creation of a new gift card, and all subsequent responses will return the same original gift card. They will not be treated as different transactions.

Responses

Response Parameters

These items can appear in the response body of a successful call to the CreateGiftCard operation.

Parameter Name Constraints Type Description

value Object Object that holds the currencyCode and amount parameters.
amount Long Card amount, in card currency.
currencyCode ISO-4217 Currency Code String A ISO-4217 currency code that specifies the currency of the card.
cardStatus String Status of card after this operation. Success value: Fulfilled
gcId String Unique gift card identifier that indicates that a call to CreateGiftCard resulted in a gcClaimCode.
creationRequestId Max 40 Characters

Prefixed with partnerID

AlphaNumeric
String Unique identifier for this request. Starts with the Partner ID.
gcExpirationDate Not provided on cards issued in NA, CA & AU UnixDate Expiration date. Card cannot be claimed by customer after this date. (Never present for cards issued in the United States, Canada, or Australia.)

AlphaNumeric
String A unique identifier for every CreateGiftCard request. You must generate a new value for every Create request (except for retries). (See notes below.)
status String Outcome of this operation. Success value: SUCCESS

Both CreateGiftCard and CancelGiftCard operation are idempotent, so if the Incentives API receives more than one such request with the same creationRequestId, then the first request will result in the creation/cancellation of the gift card request, while all subsequent responses will do nothing, and will not be treated as a unique transaction.

Required for Resellers: ProgramID

If you are integrating into the AGCOD API with the aim to resell the gift codes onto other businesses, you'll need to enter our reseller program. This is simple to do and more information can be found by contacting our account management team here. When you are up and running, you'll need to add a programID to the CreateGiftCard request as a mandatory field.

The programID is a pre-defined field which is generated when you add one of your clients to the Reseller Program in the Amazon Incentives Portal. The programID is then approved by Amazon. The programID is alphanumeric and can be up to 100 characters in length. You can use the programID field to help track client and use case transactions.

Known-answer V4 Signature Example

To assist you in the development, we have included a test example with fictitious Access Key/ Secret Keys to generate a known-answer test for different stages of the signing below. Details on how to perform each stage of the signing can be found here. Also see this diagram of the process.

Error Handling

Every response sent from the Incentives API has a status element that describes the execution status for the particular operation; there are three statusCode values: SUCCESS, FAILURE, and RESEND. See Error Handling for details.

Error Codes

We have provided mock error request IDs to simulate certain error responses with the (Create/Cancel) calls. When simulating an error response, the mock error request ID will need to be passed in to the creationRequestId field, similar to a normal request ID. The values passed in for the rest of the fields will simply be echoed in the response. To simulate a successful response, the value of F1000 can be passed in for the mock error request ID. See Mocking test examples and Error Handling for details.

Handling Gift Card Claim Codes

Gift Card Claim Codes have monetary value and need to be treated very securely. We recommend having controls in place to ensure safe and secure handling of sensitive data (gift card claim codes, security access credentials, etc.). This includes defining proper audit controls on the file systems/databases where sensitive information is stored. You should periodically change the password of your Incentives API Portal accounts that have access to secret key credentials. We recommend rotating your access keys at least once every 180 days (6 months). The Incentives API Portal lets you generate a new access key at any time. *However, AGCOD does not support automatic key rotation.

  • Claim codes should be kept confidential while in transit between Amazon and your systems.
  • Claim codes should not be stored.
  • There should be safe data handling practices in place at your premises where claim codes are accessible (either in transit or at rest).

For more details, see Guidelines for Incentives API Data Storage.
