Price Check Results

► Using the Price Check Results
When you run a price check, competitive information for your items is retrieved and displayed in the Price Check portion of the screen, as well as in some of the columns in the inventory grid. To view the results, select the item in which you are interested from your inventory list, then click on the 'Price Check' tab in the lower half of the screen. The results for the item selected in your inventory list will display below. You may also export the results to a file.


► Understanding the information in the Price Check Tab

  1. Status - The first line in the Price Check Tab is the Status field. It has several possible values:
    • OK - The price check succeeded and no action has been performed on the item. This occurs if you run a price check without repricing.
    • Price information - If a reprice has been performed, the status will contain both your old original price and the new one set by the reprice schema applied to that item.
    • Error - If an error occurrs while repricing your item a black x appears in the Price Status Flag column of the inventory grid, and the error message is displayed here.
  2. To the right of the Status Field there are three buttons:
    • Options - Clicking this button results in a drop-down menu with the following option displayed:
      • Switch Condition Tab to Match Your Item Condition - By default this option is deselected. Selecting this option results in the buckets list displaying only information from buckets of listings in the same condition category as your item.
    • View Reprice Log - Click on the button to view a summary of the automatic reprice for the item selected in your default web browser.Note: By default a log is not kept and not visible. To enable logging, before running your price check, do so in your preferences.
    • Browse on Amazon - Click on the button to go to the Amazon list of offerings for the item selected, in your default web browser.
  3. Reference prices - just below the status panel the condition of your item and the reference prices are displayed.
    • Condition - displays the condition and subcondition of your item.
    • My price - the price stored in SellerEngine Plus for your item. You may edit this directly here by typing in a new value. The change is reflected in the 'Price' column in the grid. Note: If you have not uploaded changes to Amazon this is often different than your current price on Amazon ('My Price on Amazon' field in the grid).
    • Low - the lowest price for this item, from the buckets retrieved, in the condition selected below.
    • Average price - the average price of all the retrieved buckets for listings in the condition selected below.
    • High - the highest price offerred for the item in the condition selected below.
  4. Item condition selector - just below the reference price panel is the condition selector. By clicking on the condition in which you are interested, you can change which buckets are displayed below and which reference prices display above:
    • All - the default setting, shows all retrieved buckets information.
    • x new [from price] - tells you how many buckets are available in new condition and the lowest price offered.
    • x used [from price] - tells you how many buckets are available in used condition and the lowest price offered.
    • Same or Better condition - displays all items in the same condition as your item as well as better condition buckets. You can configure the order in which the conditions are ranked in Preferences.
    • Custom - switches to the custom view you have configured:
      1. Click on 'Edit custom view'
      2. The 'Custom Buckets View' dialog appears. This allows you to configure a filter which will exclude buckets of offers from the bucket list if they match the conditions and prices you select. Check the boxes for the conditions you wish to exclude, and/or prices against which you do not wish to compete.
      3. Click OK.
  5. The Buckets List - The competitive information you have chosen to view is displayed here.
