Why do some customers already have a VPP Claim Number, and others do not?
There are two different ways for customers to acquire a VPP Claim Number. The preferred way is for the customer to visit the Consumer VPP website www.vppcanada.ca, which walks the customer through the steps of the VPP program. If the customers qualify as a VPP participant, they will be able to generate a VPP Claim Number right on-line. Once a Claim Number is generated, the customer will be instructed to visit a dealership and present this Claim Number to the Sales or Fleet Manager of the dealership.
The other way customers can acquire a VPP Claim Number is by visiting a dealership and identifying themselves as a VPP customer. It is then the responsibility of the Sales Manager to use this Web site (follow the VPP link through the Dealer Portal, www.nnanet.com) to complete and print the VPP Claim Form. By completing the Claim Form, a VPP Claim Number will be generated. Top
What if a customer comes in without a Claim Number?
If customers come in without a Claim Number and say they are eligible for the VPP, simply verify their employment with a business card and pay cheque stub or Company Photo I.D., complete the required information on this Web site, and create an official VPP Claim Form. A customer's Claim Form must be used within 90 days of issuance. Top
Can Dealership Employees participate in the VPP?
Yes. Employees of Nissan and Infiniti Dealerships in Canada are eligible to participate in the VPP program. Top
Can customers lease vehicles through the VPP?
Yes. If a customer leases through NCF or IFS, a special lease incentive may apply. Please check your monthly Sales Program bulletin for lease program details. Top
What if a customer requires a trade-in overallowance, has negative equity in a trade-in, or is responsible for a lease payoff?
The overallowance or the amount the customer owes may not be included in the purchase price indicated on the VPP Claim Form. The value of a customer's trade-in may be used to pay for the vehicle purchase, but it cannot be used to determine the VPP purchase price. The trade-in must be handled as a transaction separate from the VPP price calculation. You must complete a Trade-In/Negative Equity statement if the customer is using their vehicle as a trade-in for the VPP purchase transaction. Top
What if a customer wants to buy a service contract or Dealer-installed accessories? Does a VPP discount apply?
VPP customers can purchase Added Security Plans or Infiniti Protection Plans directly from the dealership. Nissan Canada full-time employees should consult the current Vehicle Purchase Policy for information regarding applicable discounts on ASP/IPP.
Prices for accessories are negotiable between the Dealership and the customer. Top
How can we determine if we've been paid the NCI portion of the VPP delivery fee and/or the VPP discount applied to the vehicle sale price?
VPP claims will be paid via Electronic Funds Transfer directly to your dealership within approximately 30 days of claim submission. Each VPP claim must pass through several audit confirmation steps prior to payment. You can check the status of each VPP claim on this website under Check Claim Status. Top
What Does the Customer Pay?
VPP customers pay a pre-negotiated price for a new Nissan or Infiniti vehicle. The VPP Dealer Web site calculates all discounts and prices automatically. See chart below for details:
How much does the Dealer make?
For sales to all VPP customers, Dealers earn a delivery fee that is variable by model. If the purchase is a Plan A or Plan B or Plan D one, NCI will pay the dealer. If the purchase is a Plan C one, the customer pays the fee.

How do we process a VPP sale?
The customer will either bring you a VPP Claim Number OR you'll be accessing the Claim Form from this site. For the most part, the VPP sales transaction is completed on-line. You will have to print the VPP Claim form (and possibly the 'Dealer-Added options and the Trade-in/Negative Equity forms as well) for signature and permanent record of the sale. Once the transaction is complete, you will submit your VPP Claim (for reimbursement of the appropriate discount) directly to Nissan Canada Inc. on-line.
If all information is included and accurate, the Dealer delivery fee will be paid within approximately 30 days. Incentives are paid separately upon report of the sale. If you submit a VPP Claim with errors or omissions, it will be returned to the Dealership for correction.
See the VPP Dealership Administration Guide for detailed instructions on how to complete the VPP Claim Form and a list of required backup documentation.
Do retail sales incentives apply to VPP sales?
Yes. All current retail sales incentives apply. Any national retail sales program Trading Dollars, Merchandising Dollars, Lease Cash, etc., will be populated on the calculation page automatically once you select the type of sale (i.e., Retail Purchase, Lease, Special APR) on the VPP calculation page. Regional-specific or other applicable retail incentives also apply; these must be keyed in under the 'Regional or Other Incentives' section of the VPP calculation page. These incentives will be verified during VPP sales audits.
