The Coupon Bureau® Manufacturers API

Manufacturer APIs allow a manufacturer to deposit their own offers into TCB through their own internal systems. APIs are NOT required for a Manufacturer to connect to The Coupon Bureau, these APIs are designed specifically for partners who are looking to integrate these functions into your own system.

API functions include Master Offer File deposits, Authorized Partner authorization by account for Master Offer File management, and Provider authorization by Master Offer File for distribution.

The Coupon Bureau® Authorized Partner API

Authorized Partner APIs allow the ability to connect to the TCB from your internal systems so that you can directly deposit and manage an 8112 offer into a manufacturer’s TCB account. APIs are NOT required for a Authorized Partner to reform your functions as they relate to The Coupon Bureau, these APIs are designed specifically for partners who are looking to integrate these functions into your own system.

The Coupon Bureau® Provider API

Provider APIs allow a coupon provider to deposit/ delete a serialized GS1 (the GS1 distributed to a consumer) at the time of distribution into a manufacturer’s TCB account. These APIs are required for a provider to participate with TCB. Note: A provider will only be able to deposit serialized GS1s into Master Offer Files of those manufacturers who have authorized them.

The Coupon Bureau® Retailer API

When an AI (8112) serialized data string is scanned at the POS, the POS makes an API request to POF with that serialized data string. The POF will then return the serialized data string with a status of “success” or “Failure” – if “success,” it will also send additional purchase requirement data. The POS then uses the additional purchase requirement data from the API response to validate offer against basket data and apply the discount or send a rollback response if the discount cannot be applied.

The Coupon Bureau® Clearinghouse API

Retailer clearinghouse will be able to view the redemption report of authorized retailers. Retailers connected to The Coupon Bureau® will authorize a clearinghouse to do the final settlement with the manufacturer. Once the clearinghouse is authorized, they will be able to view the redemption data in realtime.

The Coupon Bureau® Accelerator API

Accelerators will facilitate retailer connectivity to The Coupon Bureau Positive Offer File. The Coupon Bureau will authorize an Accelerator to execute coupon redemption/ rollback on behalf of multiple retailers. Retailers will use this accelerator connectivity as their connection to The Coupon Bureau Positive Offer File (POF).
