I have a question regarding maximum % discount allowed for verified reviews and I would be eternally grateful if someone had an answer or could redirect me where I could find one. Here it is.
From what I understand, reviews will count as “verified reviews” only if the item was purchased at full price or at a discount of no more than 49%.
Is that discount % based on the price at the time of purchase, or based on the current price?
For example, if an item was priced at $100 and was sold for $60 (either through the “sales” function or with a 40% discount coupon), then the review left by the buyer qualifies as a “verified review” because the discount % is lower than 50%. But if later the price increases to $150, then the above-mentioned item that was bought for $60 suddenly crosses the 50% discount threshold ($60/$150 = 60% discount), therefore does the review lose its “verified purchase” badge?
Is there any difference between the “full price” and “sale price” with regards to this matter? For example, if a product is priced at $100 and has a sale price of $80. Then a customer purchases 1 unit at at 40% discount, which is $48 ($80 -40%); here the review would qualify as a “verified review” because it does not exceed the 50% discount limit. But if later on the sales period ends and the item goes back to its original price of $100, what happens to the review? Does it lose its “verified purchase” badge?
