What happens to my price if ...

Prices change automatically within the minimum and maximum prices that you set. To help you understand how Automate Pricing works, this table describes what happens to your rule or price under certain circumstances.

Event Result
I establish a higher than/lower than Buy Box rule, then I win the Buy Box Your rule will stop repricing once you are the Buy Box winner.
I establish a higher than/lower than lowest price rule, then I am the lowest price Your rule will ensure that you remain below the second-lowest price by your pre-defined increment. For example, if the second-lowest price rises from £20 to £22, and your rule beats the lowest price by £0.50, then your price will change to £21.50.
The Buy Box/Lowest Price falls far below my minimum price (for example, my rule is to beat Buy Box by £0.10 and my minimum price is £20. The Buy Box price is £19.) Your price will reach your minimum level. For example, if your rule is to beat Buy Box by £0.10 and your minimum price is £20, when the Buy Box goes to £19, your price will remain at £20.
Another seller using Automate Pricing and I both have pricing rules on the same ASIN Your price will settle to the final level dictated by your rule and the other seller's rule. For example, if you and the other seller both have the rule "Stay below the lowest price by £0.10", your minimum price is £10 and the other seller's minimum price is £10.50, rather than triggering numerous price changes in small increments, your price will go to £10.40, and the other seller's price will go to £10.50.
I am the only seller on an ASIN and implement a Buy Box/Lowest Price rule Your price will not change until there is a relevant offer on the ASIN.
I remove my minimum or maximum price via another method, such as a feed upload, Manage Pricing or Manage Inventory, or I update my minimum price or maximum price to an invalid amount. Your pricing rule is paused for that SKU and your price remains at the last price before the pricing rule was paused. To restart the rule, go to Automate Pricing, select the rule and select Resume to restart the rule for the SKU.
I stop repricing an SKU Your price remains at the last automatically repriced value until you resume running the pricing rule, or you change the price via another method, such as feeds, Manage Pricing or Manage Inventory.
I delete a pricing rule Your prices remain at the last automatically repriced value until you change them via another method, such as feeds, Manage Pricing or Manage Inventory.
I change a rule and save it All SKUs associated with that rule are repriced according to the new logic. This process can take up to 1 hour.
I assign a used SKU to a Buy Box rule Your SKU will not change price. Automate Pricing does not currently support the used Buy Box.
I use Build International Listings (BIL) to synchronise prices across marketplaces and use Automate Pricing in the source marketplace Your automated price change in the source marketplace will synchronise your target marketplaces. For example, imagine you set up BIL to synchronise a price from the source marketplace of Germany to the target marketplace of France and you set a "match Buy Box" rule on the SKU in Germany. If your automated rule changes your price in Germany from €18.99 to €17.99, your price for France will also change from €18.99 to €17.99.
I use Build International Listings (BIL) to synchronise prices across marketplaces and use Automate Pricing in the target marketplace Your automated price change in the target marketplace will disconnect your BIL connection on that SKU in that target marketplace, the same as if you changed price in your target marketplace via Manage Inventory. For example, if you set up BIL to synchronise a price from the source marketplace of Germany to the target marketplace of France and you set a "match Buy Box" rule on the SKU in France, if your price changes in France, the SKU will stop synchronising price changes from Germany. You can re-synchronise by removing the SKU from Automate Pricing, then removing the SKU from your BIL Exclusion list.
