Repricing is technology which allows you to automatically adjust your prices based on your competition. Sometimes you may wish to be the cheapest on Amazon for a particular product but still have the highest price possible to win the deal. A common complaint is that repricing wars mean that you’re cutting your margins and no one wins.
Feedvisor aims to change how repricing works, they appreciate that you want to win orders but without cutting your margins to the bone. Rather than simply looking at which of your competitors has the lowest price, Feedvisor uses algorithmic repricing aiming to maximise your sales using many more attributes than price alone.
Today Feedvisor launch verion 2.0 of their Algo-Pricing platform. This release introduces a new artificial intelligence that will literally change the way hundreds of millions of products will be priced online. This is achieved by combining Big Data with a closed-loop, learning algorithm that constantly improves itself that Feedvisor say has never been seen in the industry before.
What do you actually want from repricing?
If you ask many sellers what they want from repricing the answer is to win orders at an acceptable margin. That’s actually different from winning orders by having a slightly lower price than all of your competitors.
Feedvisor aim to achieve this by taking into account attributes such as your feedback, seller status, order defect rate, speed of shipping and those of your competitors. They aim to help you win the Amazon Buy Box, not to ensure that you have the lowest price.
Once you’ve won the Buy Box, Feedvisor aim to keep you there, still adjusting your price to keep your profits as high as possible. For instance if you have the Buy Box there’s no need for you to be the lowest price on Amazon if part of the reason you have the Buy Box is based on your seller metrics. Feedvisor won’t needlessly lower your price and in fact will edge it higher if you keep the Buy Box and are winning sales.
Feedvisor will also spot if your competitors are using repricing, deduce what rules your competitors are using and use this to your advantage. You’ll no longer get involved in a race to the bottom pricing war… unless that’s what you want.
Is Feedvisor for you?
