You can set up limited-time promotions (aka discounts) for your fonts on MyFonts. There is no cost to set up a promotion. Promotions on new fonts can only be set up once font installations are approved by a foundry support member in Monotype Font Platform. Promotions can last a maximum of 45 days. Once the promotion ends, you must wait 45 days before changing prices or creating another promotion.
Types of Promotions
- Discount on entire family (all singles and packs)
- Discount on family pack and sub-family packs
- Discount on family pack only
- Discount on single styles only
- Free font styles
- “Secret Code” Promotion. Create your own discount code to share. Read more about Secret Codes here.
