For rules you have already created, price updates are usually processed in less than 15 minutes, but may take longer under certain circumstances. For new rules or if you change a rule parameter, it can take up to 1 hour for all SKUs assigned to the rule to re-price according to the new parameters.
Automate Pricing only displays active SKUs in your catalog. If an SKU is inactive, it will not appear in Automate Pricing. Select Inventory, then Manage Inventory to see your inactive listings.
Automate Pricing only displays active SKUs in your catalog. Your SKU may be inactive due to either being out of stock, or a potential price error.
If your SKU is inactive, it will surface again when the SKU is reactivated (for example, being back in stock).
Your Minimum Price and Your Maximum Price (optional) apply as a safeguard on your price whenever a Minimum and Maximum price are present. If you did not set a maximum price, Automate Pricing will protect customer trust on your behalf by ensuring that your offers are not priced significantly higher than recent prices so that your offers remain eligible to become the Featured Offer (Buy Box). If you manually price an item below Your Minimum Price or above Your Maximum Price, Amazon safeguards your business by suppressing (not displaying) the offer; this makes your SKU inactive due to a potential price error.
To view items that are suppressed due to price errors, select Pricing, then Fix Price Alerts.
To add Your Minimum Price and Your Maximum Price, complete the following steps:
Select Inventory, then Manage Inventory
