E420: Rebates and Coupons are Dead. Now What?November 15, 2021 in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
You really can’t predict what Amazon will do next these days. One minute I make a prediction that they won’t ban rebates because it makes them money, the next minute they’re bringing the hammer down on RebateKey.
In this episode, Dave and I will break down Amazon’s latest policy drop regarding off-Amazon rebates and coupons, what the next white-hat and black-hat tactics are likely going to be, and how you can still succeed on Amazon moving forward.
- Why the FTC might consider rebates as review manipulation – 5:22
- What the Amazon policy update means for sellers – 7:09
- The future of RebateKey and rebates in general – 12:19
- How much data Amazon has on its users and which data it tracks – 19:50
- Will Amazon start banning sellers for using rebates? – 25:29
