Bowker issue with discount codes

I've been posting metadata to Bowker for long enough to have started on Bowkerlink, only reluctantly using MyIdentifiers. I've still got Advance Book Information multi-part carbon forms in the file cabinet but I haven't tried to submit metadata using them for any recent title, heh.


Does anyone here enter discount codes? On Bowkerlink, one would set up discounts by category: library, school, wholesaler, retailer, distributor. There's nothing comparable to that on MyIdentifiers. On that Web form, I'm supposed to set up discount codes, not discounts, on a title-by-title basis. Apparently I'm supposed to offer discounts on a title-by-title basis that are specific to a bookstore or distributor without letting anyone else know what I'm offering.


I've looked on Books In Print and BookWire. The discounts anyone is offering aren't apparent to me. Can anyone give me an example so I can see what's going on?
