Amazon’s Automated Repricer: Why you shouldn't use it.

Amazon’s Automated Repricer: Why you shouldn't use it.

In 2016, Amazon released its own automated inventory repricing tool dubbed “Automated pricing” which was available and free for all sellers with a professional account. I am guessing Amazon saw how much its third-party sellers relied on external repricing tools. If you are reading this then I am assuming you are familiar with what a Repricer is and does but if not, a Repricer uses rules or algorithms to automatically change prices based on inputs that you set. It can reprice a listing on Amazon up or down depending on the competitor's price. If you are not familiar with Amazon with Amazon's automated Repricer you can watch this Youtube video from Amazon here

Amazon and eBay do Australia

BigCommerce has recently released the '2018 Omnichannel Buying Report'

In an attempt to exhaustively analyze the role of online and offline channels in a highly competitive Australian e-commerce space, BigCommerce surveyed the online and offline buying habits of over 3000 Australian digital consumers. The results of the study show that Australian consumers spend $1 out of $4 of their monthly discretionary income online.

Back in November 2017, Amazon entered the Australian marketplace and started an aggressive marketing campaign with a clear goal in mind: dethrone eBay. Despite Amazon's efforts, the study shows that eBay practically doubled Amazon's figures. When asked about their past six months purchases, 63% of respondents reported an eBay purchase, while only 24% of the respondents have used Amazon's services.
