Getting the most of out of your Deals

Lightning Deals and 7-day Deals are time-bound, promotional offers where a product is featured on the Amazon Deals page. You can use the Deals Dashboard to submit Lightning Deals and 7-day Deals for a fee. All the proposed Lightning Deals and 7-day Deals require Amazon approval to run on the Amazon Deals page. For more information, see the Deals help pages.

As you choose and create your Deals, take into account the following tips that may improve the success of your Deal:

Before creating your Deal

  • Seasonality: All products have an optimal time of year to sell to customers. Choose the week that best optimizes the seasonality of your product.
  • On-Amazon competition: Your Deal might be the best priced product on Amazon, but consider whether the price is competitive to similar products from other brand and sellers.
  • Off-Amazon prices: The example of price shows the price at which your product will be the best priced product in Amazon Amazon Stores. However, it might be useful to consider whether the Deal price is competitive to prices on websites outside of Amazon

After creating a Deal

  • Monitor the Status of your Upcoming Deals: Actively monitor your upcoming Deals from the Deals Dashboard in the days leading up to the deal start date to ensure they continue to meet the eligibility requirements If any of your scheduled Deals becomes suppressed, you’ll need to make the appropriate updates to the Deal within the Deals Dashboard. See Troubleshooting Suppressed and Live Deals for more information.
  • Check Upcoming Deals page on Amazon: Use this 24 hour window to review your upcoming Deals. Any deal that is suppressed will need to be fixed 25 hours before the scheduled start time or it will not surface in the Upcoming Deals section and may be canceled. Below are some helpful tips:
    • Your upcoming Deals surface in the expected category. Locate your upcoming deals using the Department and Availability filters within Today’s Deals to ensure customers are able to see them.
    • The Deal image is of good quality and accurately represents the product. You can update the deal image from Seller Central if necessary.
    • The Deal price provides a great discount for customers. You can increase the percentage off my lowering your Deal price and increase your Quantity for Deal allowing more customers purchase from your Deal.
  • Avoid making changes to ASIN(s): For Deals in Upcoming status, avoid making major changes to the ASIN(s) or parent ASIN participating in the Deal. This includes:
    • Pricing Edits: If you lower the price on a participating ASIN(s), you may also be required to lower the Deal price for the same ASIN(s) to avoid Deal suppression.
    • Delete or Close Listings: Do not change the status of any ASIN(s) participating in Deals to Closed within the Manage Inventory page. Doing so will cancel any Deal currently scheduled for that ASIN. Canceled Deals cannot be reactivated.
    • Create new child ASINs: For Deals that include variations, avoid creating or assigning new child ASINs to the variation family after the Deal has been submitted. Doing so will result in the existing Deal to revalidate with the new child ASINs which will cause the Deal to become suppressed or canceled.
