Back in December we wrote about an apparent bug in MarkDown Manager that was double discounting items on sale. Today a cause has been identified which appears to be the likely culprit for many if not all instances of the discounted pricing.
If an item is placed on a MarkDown Manager sale and the item ends before the end of the sale period the price will remain at the discounted price. If that item is then relisted either through eBay’s bulk relist tool, or through Turbolister then the discounted sale price will be the new price for that item. If the item is then placed on another MarkDown Manager sale it will be further discounted a second time.
In theory if you constantly replenish stock on a SIF item and it’s relisted each time it ends the price could continue to be discounted right down to Â£0.00
If you have shop inventory format items that have been part of a MarkDown Manager sale you’ll need to verify the price when you relist them, if they ended whilst a sale was still current. Although not ideal, knowing where the problem lies should now give sellers the ability to spot incorrectly priced relisted items and correct them.
