types of promotions in WCS

Generally, promotion can be applied automatically or we have to provide with some promotion code to get it applied to the order or order item. We can observe that we are provided with redemption method in CMC to achieve the same. If the redemption method is meeting  the criteria then promotion will be applied automatically and if the redemption method is designed such that it needs promotion code, then to get the promotion user needs to supply the promotion code. Again Promotion code can be unique/ single time used or it can be applied multiple times, Unique Promotion code is targeted for specific users and public promotion or multiple times used promotions are reusable and can be applied to all shoppers, if they enter the promotion code.
