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.
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.
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.
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.
