‘Tracking’ in Price Manager – User Guide

XSellco Price Manager includes a powerful feature called ‘Tracking’ – which allows you to see the price movements of your SKUs over time, Buy Box ownership, detailed insights of each of your SKUs, and much more.

Identify trends in your price changes, how your competitors react to your price changes, and your percentage of Buy Box ownership versus your competitors.

With this valuable information, you can then adjust your repricing strategy to own the Buy Box more often.

To access ‘Tracking’, go to Repricer.

Then select Repricing Events, which can be found on the left hand side of the screen. This page lists all SKUs that have undergone a repricing event. Simply click on the Tracking button to the right of the SKU whose recent performance you wish to view.

Sales Trend

Although the first graph shows Buy Box ownership and Sales Rank, it does not show resulting sales. Therefore we have added a sales chart that shows your sales in terms of both total orders and revenue. We only display your sales information as we do not have access to competitor sales data.Sales trend

Buy Box Owners

Here you can see how Buy Box ownership is shared for this product: between you, other sellers and Amazon. You can also see the frequency of Buy Box wins for each seller.

The numbers and percentages shown refer to repricing events rather than time but are a great guide to your performance. You can use this information to set rules targeting specific competitors.

Simply click on the competing seller to create a specific rule to target this merchant.


Repricing Rules

This section allows you to determine the best repricing rule for a specific product.

In the example below, you can see two rules have been active for this product, and see the first repricing rule has been more effective in winning the Buy Box.
