Lightning Deal Fees

Lightning Deals are flash sales where a product is featured for certain hours on the Amazon Deals page, one of the most visited pages on Amazon. Lightning Deals are aimed at offering short term attractive prices for high demand products on Amazon.in, thereby potentially increasing the chances of getting a sales lift for the sellers during the deal period. With this fee introduction, only performing deals are intended to be offered to the customers thereby improving the visibility of your deals. Removing non-performing deals is likely to help you generate additional sales per deal driven by higher traffic and better conversion. If you perform well in these Lightning Deals, you are likely to generate more traffic to your products even in the non-deals period standing a chance to increase your business

What is the fee I will be charged per Lightning Deal?

Type of Deal STEP level Fee Charges
Amazon-recommended Lightning Deals Premium INR 133 per deal
Advanced INR 133 per deal
Standard INR 149 per deal
Basic INR 166 per deal

For more information, see Amazon STEP.

How can I place ASINs on deals, if they are not part of Amazon recommendations?

Amazon recommended deals can be configured directly by sellers on Seller Central. In case, you wish to add additional ASINs to Lightning Deals, you can do so by reaching out to Seller Support.

When will I be charged?

The charges towards Lightning Deals will be levied once a month. You will be charged a flat fee based on your STEP Level at the end of the month. We will send you a consolidated email every month with the details of ASINs you configured Lightning Deals on. We will send you the details of ASINs on which you configured Lightning Deals on your registered email ID. You can view the Lightning Deal fee charges on your date range report on Seller Central.

Will Amazon charge me if my Deal does not perform well?

The business for a seller on Amazon.in depends on multiple factors and we cannot promise an increase in business with a Lightning Deal fee. However, we have historically seen better business for higher quality deals and urge you to follow the guidelines before deciding the products that you wish to put on a Lightning Deal.

Running a Lightning Deal does not guarantee that you will win the Buy Box.

If you were incorrectly charged a Lightning Deal fee for a Lightning Deal that did not run, contact Seller Support within 30 days of receiving the email for possible refund consideration.

Will Amazon charge me for a canceled Deal?

Amazon will not charge you if the deal is suppressed or does not go live due to technical glitches.
