Compete with Featured Merchants

This strategy is useful when you are Featured Merchant or Top Rated Seller and want to exclude sellers who are not. For example, on Amazon, only Featured Merchants are eligible for the buy box, so this strategy would prevent you from competing with offers that cannot win the buy box.

Your Pre-Configured Settings Include:


Pricing Rules

Setting your General pricing rule allows you to specify the percentage or amount that you want us to Beat your current competition by.The can be used for any competition type and can be set by dollar amount or percentage:

    • Price Below: Puts your price lower than your competition. 
    • Price Above: Puts your price higher than your competition. 
    • Match Price: Matches your price with your competition.

 

 

FBA Pricing Rule

This setting allows you to set a separate pricing value specifically for FBA competition, which can be set in a percentage or dollar amount. If you decide to use this rule, the General pricing will be used for your MFN competition only.

Exclude Amazon as a Seller  (Advanced setting)

This setting allows you to exclude Amazon from your competition completely. This setting is useful for sellers you prefer not to compete with Amazon, as you usually need to beat them by a higher percentage in order to get the buy box. For additional information on Amazon's Subscription API limitation please click here.
