Merchant Promotion System
Every seller on Gamivo can promote items that they want to sell. Promoted items will be shown on top before all other offers even if promoted price is higher than other offers.
There’s a feature in the merchant dashboard that allows doing this. Here’s a step-by-step process:
1. From the merchant dashboard, go to the “Offers” tab.
2. Select the “Promotion” tab to choose your Daily Budget. The Daily Budget is the amount of money that you’re willing to spend to promote your items each day.
3. Return to the “Active” tab. To promote a particular item, just click on the “Promote” button that’s next to that product.
4. Next, choose your Cost Per Click (CPC) Limit. This limit is how much you want to spend whenever a customer purchases your promoted item.
5. Select the “Save” option to keep your changes.
6. If your Cost Per Click is higher than that of other merchants that also use the Promotion System, your offer will be on the top of the offers list.
If a customer requests a refund after purchase, Gamivo charges a 1 EUR refund fee to the merchant if one or more of the following conditions are met:
1. The game key provided doesn’t match with the platform, language, or region of the product that’s listed in the game description.
2. The game key is a duplicate or invalid and either the replacement was faulty or the customer doesn’t want a replacement key. Pre-order cancellations and order resignations (such as game keys that weren’t delivered) are not included.
