Indirect rebates are rebates that are earned or paid on a transaction by an organization that is not one of the two parties directly involved in the transaction. An example would be where the organization is neither the purchaser nor the seller in a transaction.
If indirect rebates have been enabled in your channel, you will be able to select which of your trading partners will be included when configuring the program line. The programs’ trading partner will be automatically selected, with the others unselected by default. You can then include any additional trading partners manually, or by creating inclusion or exclusion rules.
You will then be able to select dimension items from any included trading partners. In the screenshot below, any products for Abacus Direct, Aico, or Allen (Concrete) would be selectable in this program line. This means that transactions for these trading partners would also generate earnings for this program line.
There is also a new filter on the Program earnings report that will allow you to 'only show earnings where the trading partners selected are on the transactions'. This also adds a new column that breaks the report more granularly so you can see the earnings each trading partner is responsible for.
Indirect rebates can be configured for your channel by Enable staff. If you would like this enabled in your channel, please get in touch with us.
