Definition: Vendor Rebates

A vendor rebate is a type of vendor allowance or incentive in which a part of the purchase price is returned by the seller to the buyer when a specified quantity or value of goods has been purchased within a specified period. Unlike discounts which are deducted in advance of payments, rebates are given after payment.


Vendor rebates can be of several types:

Standard rebate: Different purchase thresholds have a different rebate factor, either as a percentage or absolute amount. Thus, an increase in purchased amounts leads to a higher rebate factor. These may be prospective or retrospective.


Growth bonus rebate: A target percentage increase or growth in either quantity or purchase amount for a specific item that triggers the rebate.
