Everything you need to know about Prime Exclusive Discounts

Amazon just recently announced a new feature called prime exclusive discounts. This new type of discount works similar to sale price but is exclusively for Prime members. Sellers also need to have Prime-eligible products either through Fulfillment by Amazon or Seller Fulfilled Prime. This new feature will display a discounted price underneath the regular price which now will be crossed out, plus the typical savings summary like 15% etc. will display in the search results and the product detail page.

Also, On Prime Day, products will display a Prime Day Deals badge similar to running a lightning deal. You have until July 5th2019 to submit your products for the prime day deals badge. Just make sure to check the Prime Day Deal Checkbox when submitting your products for approval.

Final Thoughts

Prime exclusive discounts look like they are going to be a good way to boost sales for this coming up Prime Day. It is easier to qualify for this then it is for a Lightning Deal for sellers that don’t get regular feedback. So for any product that doesn’t qualify for Prime Day Lighting Deals or if you don’t have the marketing budget to cover the cost of the Deals then this is a good option for you.

I will be monitering the impact of this deal coming this prime day. Please let me know you thoughts on this new feature or if you had success in the comments below.
