Amazon supports mail-in rebates for listings in certain non-media categories. In the My Inventory tab in Monsoon Marketplace, you will find a link to add a Rebate under the links to add Images and User Data as shown in the screenshot below. The Rebates link opens a configuration dialog that includes both messaging and start/end dates.
A rebate message is associated with a SKU and is submitted to Amazon Seller Central via product feed. When a SKU has a rebate message, it will appear on the offers page right before the notes.
A rebate includes the following parts:
- Name (Monsoon Marketplace uses the SKU as the name)
- Rebate start date
- Rebate end date
- Rebate message
Rebate start date and rebate end date determine the validity of the rebate. Once the rebate end date elapses, the rebate automatically expires and there is no need to explicitly delete a rebate. You can modify both the rebate message and the rebate start/end dates.
While retrieving Amazon orders, if any of the order items contain a rebate then the rebate message is added to the order. It’s important to note that rebates are applied to orders under the following conditions:
- One of the order items have a rebate
- The order date is in between the rebate start date and rebate end date
You can add rebate information via an import file, if you would like to add several rebates at once. More information on the headers to use can be found in the Inventory Column Definitions section of the WebHelp. You can also export rebate information as part of an inventory export.
