    Rebate is final discount that after deducting rent, promotion cost etc.. and discount is deduct amount from purchase cost. Exampl: total sale is 1000 $
    rent is 200 , promotion fee is 300 than remaining amount is 500 so deduct rebate from 500 as per contract %. but discount means deduct % from 1000.
