Brand Tailored promotion FAQs

How much is the fee to set-up a Tailored promotion?

There is no fee to offer a Brand Tailored promotion.

How do I set up efficient budgets for a tailored promotion?

An efficient budget covers the cost of the customer demand that your promotion generates, for the duration you set.

For example, if your tailored promotion audience size is 100,000 with audience selected as 'Repeat customers' and you run a 10% discount. Say the average order value for your brand is $30. An average promotion can be redeemed by 5% of the eligible audience.

The minimum budget you can set must be (Average order value for your brand X percent discount X Number of customers in selected audience X Redemption percentage).

30 X 10% X 100000 X 5% = $15000

Budget overspending is most likely to occur during high-traffic events or when your promotion is combined with other promotions, such as lightning deals or when you set unrealistically low budgets for higher discounts.

Avoid creating unrealistically low budgets. Low budgets for high discounts might cause your budget to expire rapidly after only a couple of hours. As a result, only a handful of customers will be able to see and interact with your promotion, and you might experience budget overshoot.

How does the promotion appear to the customers?

Eligible customers (audiences) will be able to view the promotion on search, detail page, and promotion shopping page surfaced by a green badge that says 'Follower promo' or 'Exclusive promo' based on the audience selected.

My account does not have the right permissions to access brand tailored promotion. How can I get access?

If you see a permissions error page, have the primary user grant you access by visiting "Settings > User Permissions > Global User permissions > (find relevant user in list) > Manage rights > Brand Benefits > Brand Tailored Promotions".

Why am I not seeing Tailored promotion in the product detail page although I have already submitted it?

Tailored promotion will be featured only to customers (audience) that the promotion is tailored to. If you don’t see tailored promotion on the detail page:

  • You might not be in the selected audience for the promotion.
  • The tailored promotion is not the highest value promotion for a given ASIN and other coupons/discounts are featuring on the ASIN.
  • Your product might not be the Featured Offer.

I have made a mistake while creating the discount and I have already submitted the promotion. How do I fix the discount?

You can always edit a discount up to six hours before the promotion goes live. If the promotion is live, you might need to cancel/deactivate the promotion.

How can I check the status of my Tailored promotion?

You can know the status of your promotion from the Brand Tailored promotion homepage on Seller Central. Your promotion will have one of the statuses below:

Running - Promotion is currently live for audiences

Complete - Promotion is either concluded or budget is exhausted

Scheduled - Promotion is scheduled to go live on start date

Canceled by Brand - Promotion is canceled/deactivated by brand

Pending Activation - Promotion is pending activation

Failed - Promotion creation failed due to some error

Some of my products are in a Deal and Coupons. Will the Tailored promotion stack over regular deal price?

Tailored promotions may combine with other unrestricted promotions, deals and coupons. All the tailored promotions will be set as 'Preferential' meaning that if there are multiple preferential claim codes, the most beneficial promotion is applied.

Tailored promotions will however combine with all promotions without claim codes and all 'Unrestricted' promotions. For more information, go to claim codes and combinability.

Will the discount apply to all sellers for my brand?

No, the promotion will apply to only the selected brand's product for the brand owner selling partner's catalog. Thus they will only apply to the seller creating the promotion even if multiple selling partners sell a given brand's products.

Is there an overlap between different audiences?

Yes, the audiences are not mutually exclusive. There could be overlap between different audiences. So if a buyer is part of two different audiences and brand creates a promotion for both, the buyer might get two different promotions.

However, two promotions cannot be applied on the same purchase as tailored promotion discounts will not stack. The buyer can however use tailored promotion for two different purchases if eligible for two audience based promotions.

If multiple promotion codes are set, which one will customers see first on the search and detail page?

Customers will be seeing the highest value promotion for a given ASIN (including tailored promotion or other coupons/discounts) first.

If a customer shares a BTP promotion/ASIN with a friend who is not in my audience pool, can they still use the code?

Only the eligible customer featuring in selected audience can see the promotion on the product and is allowed to enter the redeem the promotion from their account.
