Manage Amazon Points

Amazon Points is well acknowledged by consumers in the Japan marketplace. Consumers can earn Points by purchasing items with point offerings, and then they can redeem the Points they earn on other eligible items. 1 point is equivalent to 1 JPY.

Sellers have the option to offer Amazon Points on any of their listed offers.

For more information on Amazon Points Service Agreement, see here.

Offer and pay for Amazon Points

Points offering

Point offerings on an item are displayed on the product detail page under the price of the item. Buyers earn the Points offered on a purchased item once the shipment of that item is confirmed.

Note: If an offer with points is running deal (Deal of the Day, Lightening Deal and 7-day Deal), points will not be displayed or cannot be earned by customers during the deal period. For example, even if you set 1% for an offer which is running Deal of the Day (DOTD,) the offer will not show points during the DOTD period, neither can customers earn points from this offer. After the deal, the display of points will show again automatically and customers will be able to earn points.

Paying for points offering

The monetary value of the Points offered on an item is deducted from your sales proceeds before they are disbursed to your account.

Fees for SKUs with point offerings

Amazon fee rates will be applied to the price of the item minus the monetary value of the Points offered on that item (1 pt=1 JPY). Learn more about the selling on Amazon fee schedule.

Cancellations, returns, and refunds on orders with points

Cancel an item

If the buyer makes a change to an order after is has been placed, such as changing the item quantity of canceling the order entirely, no Points transaction will occur.

Return an item

If an item is returned, the Amazon Points earned from the item are deducted from the buyer's account and returned to your seller account. In the case of a partial refund, Points refunded will be automatically calculated by a directly proportional percentage of the item price refund.

Note: Points will not be returned to your account in the case of an A-to-z Guarantee Claim.

Refund a buyer

Full Refund Partial Refund
The full price of the item is returned to the buyer's bank account, and the seller will get back all Points they granted to the buyer.

The amount of Points returned will be automatically calculated by an amount directly proportional to the price of the item.

Example: If you refund the buyer 10% of a product that you sold for 1000 JPY + 200 offered Points, 100 JPY will be refunded to the buyer and 20 Points will be returned to your account.
