One thought on “Amazon Lets Sellers Offer Prime-Exclusive Discounts”

  1. I set one up for 25 SKU’s. Here are my observations about the process.
    * Minimum discount allowed is 20%. Bad example shown above! Better have some good margin to cover this much discount. If you choose an “Amount Off” promotion, make sure it still works out to a 20% or larger discount.
    * At this point, you cannot “use the feature year-round”. It’s only for Prime Day. There is a grayed-out check box for Prime Day that can’t be unchecked.
    * I used the Restock Inventory report (from Seller Central Reports->Fulfillment menu) to sort my current products and copy the SKUs into the Prime Price Loader template.
    * The Prime Price Loader template is case-sensitive. “Amount Off” works, “Amount off” doesn’t.
    * If you submit a template, and you don’t like the results — DON’T submit a second one! There is no way to select a whole batch of SKUs to edit or remove. Best to get it right the first time, and if you goof then fix the bad entries manually.
    * I’m doing this to gain exposure to the brand, not to make a big profit on a lot of sales. At 20% off, there’s no big profit left! I just want to do this for Prime Day since they’ll be ramping up the hype for it. I can’t see doing this every day for Prime members even if I could — what would the point be?
