Depending on the program’s subscription term, sellers may edit prices, product enrolled quantities, or delete products, until the program subscription expires. Sellers need to pay attention to the program registration deadline in the Upcoming section with a countdown timer.

 

Low-stock products: After registering the participating product, the system will warn the product with a lower inventory than the amount of inventory the seller has registered for the program as shown below. Sellers can choose to Update stock to ensure that products are not rejected when the system is making allocations.
