How to give app discounts or X months free trial?

Anyone have ideas on how to give discounts or extended free trial to users of your app?


I haven't seen a way to enter a coupon code in a shopify app... so I was thinking maybe I could have a URL parameter and pass to Charge API, but that parameter gets lost by the time they hit the install screen.



- Give X% off for life during app launch promotion.

- Give 3 months free trial for users on your pre-launch list.



Has anyone done something like this?

Hey @JoesIdeas , 


It's definitely possible to do this, but unfortunately Shopify doesn't have any facilities to do so such as a coupon code. 


This would be the kind of thing you'd have to manage yourself by tracking shops and discount levels and creating their app charges at the desired pricing.
