Checks if a Coupon or Promotion Code may be used.


srd: sparse response description, a SOAP string (which must be a JSON object), in which you specify the elements you want returned.This parameter enables the calling system to constrain a method call to return only components you specify. This gives you greater control over returned content, and improves response time within the Vindicia platform by reducing the processing needed for the call.

Some fields are required, either practically or in the WSDL, and will be returned regardless of the srd. A null srd returns the complete response.

code: the CampaignCode to be validated.

activateCodeNow: a Boolean flag which, if true, activates the code as soon as it has been validated. If false or omitted, an inactive CampaignCode will remain inactive.


return: an object of type Return that indicates the success or failure of the call.

valid: a Boolean flag which indicates whether or not the Code is valid.


In addition to those listed in Standard Return Codes, this call returns:

Return Code

Return String


One of the following:

  • Code input-code doesn't represent a CouponCode.
  • Code input-code can't be activated: error-description.
  • Code input-code is not redeemable: error-description.


$camp = new Campaign();
