Promotion Manager handles Rebates in one of two ways:
- Uploaded File
The URL option can be useful if you have a rebate hosted on another site, or maybe a manufacturer or supplier is providing Rebates on their site you want to inform your customer on. This configuration allows your promotion to directly link to another site (or your own) to provide a Rebate form to be downloaded.
The Uploaded File is for when you want to control the Rebate form more directly. This document will be saved on your site and
Rebate forms, regardless of the option you choose, are found by going to the "promotions.html" page on your site (e.g. http://webshopmanager.com/promotions.html). From here you can click on the specific rebate if it appears, or navigate down to find your rebates by clicking on the "See all Rebates" button (See Figure 1 below). By clicking on the "Link" your customer can start a download of the rebate form.
