Frequently Asked Questions

Does the discount apply to purchases of more than one item?

Discounts are set and applied on a per-product-category basis. If a buyer purchases multiple products at the same time, each product will be eligible for the discount set for its product category.

Are the referral fee changes applied based on order date, or based on shipping date?

The basis is the date when confirmation of shipment is sent for the ordered product. Accordingly, if confirmation of shipment is sent during the promotion period, the discount will be applied.

How do I check the categories registered for my listings? What should I do if they are incorrect?

You can check categories in Seller Central, in the Manage Inventory -> Sales Rank section. If the Sales Rank column is not displayed, you can add it from Manage Inventory -> Settings. If a category is incorrect, please go to Manage Inventory -> Edit Details -> Important Information or Details -> Recommended Browse Node to change it. If you cannot edit it, contact technical support.

Where can I check whether the promotion was applied to the referral fees I am charged?

You can check from the payment transaction.
