Changes to the Subscribe and Save Program on Amazon – My Amazon Guy

Amazon has recently made changes to the Subscribe and Save Program.
 
  • Subscribe and Save is now and auto-enroll program. You can no longer manually upload products.
  • Amazon is allowing greater Seller-funded discounts up to 10% for a total subscribe and save discount of 15% for the customer.
You can choose from three seller-funded base discount options: 0%, 5%, or 10%. If your product shows Auto enrolled, Amazon has automatically enrolled it into Subscribe & Save at the 0% base discount, at no cost to you. For a limited time, Amazon will fund an additional 5% discount for tiered shipments regardless of which base discount that you choose.
On average, products with the maximum program discount can drive up to a 1.8 times increase in conversion
*Fund at 0% discount
Up to 4 subscriptions
Same delivery date = 0%
5 or more subscriptions
Same delivery date = 0% + 5% from Amazon
*Fund at 5% discount
Up to 4 subscriptions
Same delivery date = 5%
5 or more subscriptions
Same delivery date = 5% + 5% from Amazon
*Fund at 10% discount
Up to 4 subscriptions
Same delivery date = 10%
5 or more subscriptions
Same delivery date = 10% + 5% from Amazon
*An increase in conversion is not guaranteed. The projected increase is based on an internal Amazon study comparing ASIN enrollment at the 10%/15% discount vs. a 0%/5% discount.

I was fortunate to be part of MAG's first batch of its Advertising Internship Program. The timing was perfect for me as I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about Amazon PPC and at the same time to have hands-on training to work on accounts.  

 

When I started my internship, I listed down the things I wanted to learn. And I am happy to say that I've ticked all the boxes! My most favorite was "Optimization Using Bulk Files”. Bulk files and I, we did not get along at first, it was so scary seeing all those data! But I had a great mentor who guided me along the way. He patiently taught me step by step on how to process the data. He was very enthusiastic in answering all of my questions. He supported me until I gained the confidence in uploading my first, second, third (and so on) bulk uploads. 

 

The biggest advantage in working with MAG (and I must say one thing that I always look forward to every week) is its Weekly Ads Training. Every week, we discuss various topics about PPC. Interns/Ads Specialists/Ads Managers, we all share knowledge, information, and updates about PPC. During our discussions, we exchange ideas and feedback. It became an avenue not just to learn a skill, but also to clear any vague or ambiguous PPC topics. 

 

For me, the biggest disadvantage is the work schedule. As an Intern, I have to follow EST timing. The time difference from my location was only 8 hours, but being a morning person, I really struggled to keep myself awake. But if you are a night owl, then this will not be a problem for you.

 

So if you are considering joining the MAG Advertising Internship Program, my advice to you is to take action - APPLY NOW! The knowledge that you will gain and the skill that you will develop from this program will be invaluable. And who knows? From being an Intern, you might be the next one to be promoted as Jr. Ads Specialist!
