A pricing rule establishes when an automated price change occurs. For
example, you can create a rule that stays SAR 0.10 below the Buy Box price, or another
rule so your price stays SAR 1.00 above the lowest marketplace price that uses the same
To create a pricing
rule, complete the following steps:
From the Automate Pricing home
page, click Get
If you have already created a pricing rule and want to create a second rule, click
Create a new pricing
rule from the home page.
Enter a rule name. This name should be short but descriptive
enough to remember later; for example, “Match the Buy Box” or “Holiday low price
Choose the price you want to compare against. You can compare SKUs
in your rule to the Buy Box price or the lowest price for an ASIN. Select either
Buy Box price or Lowest price from the drop-down menu.
Define the price
action you want Automate Pricing to take. You can match, beat, or stay above the
Buy Box price or Lowest price. Select the option of your choice from the drop-down
menu to the right of Buy Box price or Lowest price.
Define the amount by which you want the automatic price action to
trigger, either as an amount or a percent.
You must enter a minimum value of at least 1% or SAR 0.10, and the maximum percent
you can enter is 90%.
Select filters for your rule by selecting the check boxes next to
each filter option. Filters allow you to identify the types of offers you want to
compare. All Automate Pricing rules apply to offers on the same ASIN and
condition. Additional examples of filters might include comparing to only FBA
offers, or comparing to only offers from sellers with a seller rating within 5% of
yours, or better.
To confirm your rule functions as expected, read the Rule Summary for final confirmation. This will display below the filters, and state what your rule does.
When you are finished, click Save and select SKUs to move to the next portion of the Automate Pricing workflow. When you click Save and select SKUs, your rule will be saved, whether or not you add any SKUs to the rule. Until you assign SKUs to your rule, Automate Pricing will not change any prices on your SKUs.
