Nissan Vehicle Purchase Program
Q. What is the Vehicle Purchase Program?
A. The Vehicle Purchase Program (VPP) is a great opportunity for Nissan Dealerships to increase sales and expand their customer base. Eligible participants include employees of Nissan Canada and its affiliate companies, employees of Nissan Business Associates (more than 300 companies), and friends and family of Nissan employees. Because VPP customers get the “VIP” treatment including no-haggle pricing and an expedited sales process, they are excellent prospects for future business and are likely to be a valuable source of referrals.
Q. Who qualifies under the Vehicle Purchase Program?
A. Nissan Canada Inc. & Affiliate Companies:
Plan A – NCI Employees & their Immediate or Extended Family; Retirees & their Spouses
Plan B – Employees of Affiliates & their Spouse & children; Employment Service/Contract Employees and their Spouse & Children
Plan C – Business Associates & their Spouses; Friends of NCI Employees
Plan D – Employees of Nissan Dealerships & their Spouse

Q. Why do some customers already have a VPP Claim Number, and others do not?
A. 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 online. 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 website to complete and print the VPP Claim Form. By completing the Claim Form, a VPP Claim Number will be generated.
Q. What if a customer comes in without a Claim Number?
A. 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 website, and create an official VPP Claim Form. A customer’s Claim Form must be used within 90 days of issuance.
Q. Can Dealership Employees participate in the VPP?
A. Yes. Employees of Nissan Dealerships in Canada are eligible to participate in the VPP program.
Q. Can customers lease vehicles through the VPP?
A. 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.
Q. What if a customer requires a trade-in over allowance, has negative equity in a trade-in, or is responsible for a lease payoff?
A. The over allowance 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.
Q. What if a customer wants to buy a service contract or Dealer-installed accessories? Does a VPP discount apply?
A. VPP customers can purchase Added Security Plans 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.
Q. 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?
A. 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.
Q. What Does the Customer Pay?
A. VPP customers pay a pre-negotiated price for a new Nissan vehicle. The VPP Dealer website calculates all discounts and prices automatically.
