Audience: Suppliers

If your retailer trading partner has enabled the Promotions feature, you can use promotions to schedule discounts for a given time period for the items you sell. Be aware that your retailer may choose to review and approve your promotions before they are available to customers

  • For suppliers participating in a retailer’s Drop-ship program, your promotional discounts must be applied per item (wherea discount is applied for each item).
  • For suppliers participating in a retailer’s Private Marketplace program, your promotional discounts can be applied per item (where a discount is applied for each item) or at a bulk discount (where the same percentage discount or fixed amount discount is applied for all items in the assortment).

Note: Not every retail trading partner participates in Private Marketplace, which is different from the drop-ship program.
