Rebate Product allows for a negative priced product that can be used as a rebate or credit on the POS or admin panel. Rebate products can't be used on the website. For example if you are booking reservations and the customer pays in advance, but you give a refund at the winery if they purchase product, then a rebate product can be used to handle this refund.
Rebates do not count when calculating coupons for either quantity requirements or minimum dollar requirements. Rebates can't be discounted with a coupon. Rebates will appear on the customer order confirmations and receipts.
Rebate Product functionality has automatically been added for everyone.
