This guide is for configuring the XSellco Ultimate Repricer which allows you to apply a margin based on your cost pricing. The guide for the Basic and Plus repricer can be found here.
The Repricer tab shows you all of the products which have been imported into XSellco. Click on the product name to see the product on Amazon. Click on the SKU identifier to see the repricing updates that have been applied.
The Price Manager tab is where you define repricing rules to compete intelligently with other sellers. Create as many repricers as you wish. Each can have multiple competition rules.
First click Add Repricer to bring up this screen:
This contains the default catch-all rules. Select how much you want to be above or below other sellers. This can be an amount or a percentage. Where you configure an amount, it will be based on the currency of the channel – pounds for Amazon UK or dollars for Amazon.com. The maximum and minimum also supports an amount or percentage for each product.
When you have these default rules created, click Create Repricer.
Then a button called Create Competitor Rule will appear. This allows finer control of how you compete with specific types of sellers.
For example, if you are non-FBA, and are competing against an FBA merchant with a specified rating band, then you might want to stay below this type of seller by a margin. On the other hand as an FBA seller you might be happy to stay above a non-FBA competitor. Create as many of these rules as you require to maximise your profitability.
Note: Make sure to save the file in CSV format, using Open Office for example

Assign a Repricer to Your Products
Once you have creating your rules and uploaded your cost data, you need to select which repricer to to use for each product.
Click the Repricer tab. There are two buttons on the right hand side:
Click the Actions button, then select Bulk Assign Repricer
this brings up a new dialogue box which allows you to set one of the repricers that you have configured. Note there are two areas which need to be configured
If you configure multiple repricers and you want to apply different repricers to different products, you can use the “Filters” button to apply the repricer to only certain groups of products.
Note: When you register only the channel you registered will be showing in your account. If you have additional channels you want to add, follow this guide. If you upload an Amazon Price and Inventory file to set your inventory then the price field should be blank for products that are managed by the repricer.
