You can now apply or remove SKUs from Automate Pricing rules using the Automate Pricing file template once you have created your rule in the Automate Pricing tool. You can manage up to 30,000 SKUs per 24 hour period. There is no limit on the number of files you can submit . As soon as the feed is processed, your SKUs are applied to the rule you set, and Automate Pricing adjusts your price according to the rule, minimum price, and maximum price you enter.
The Automate Pricing file enables you to:
If you choose Option 1- pre-populated file (recommended):
If you choose Option 2 – Blank feed file:
If you are assigning an SKU to a rule, or adjusting an SKU already associated with a rule, the sku, minimum-seller-set-price, country-code, currency-code, rule-name and rule-action fields are mandatory. If you are removing an SKU from a rule, the sku, country-code and rule-action fields (with STOP) are required.
This field (Stock Keeping Unit) is used to track inventory. You must provide an SKU in your Automate Pricing file.
This field is mandatory when running an Automate Pricing rule on an SKU, and ensures that Automate Pricing keeps your item price above the minimum item price you set. If you attempt to set your price for the product below your minimum allowable price, your offer will become inactive and you will be notified via email.
To change your minimum allowable price, modify the value in this field and upload the updated file. If you enter "STOP" in the rule-action field, your minimum price will not be updated; we will only remove the SKU.
This field tracks the various countries in which the SKU is listed. To identify the correct country, provide the two-letter code. The valid value is IN.
This field denotes the currency used in the country of the SKU. The valid value for currency is INR.
This field assigns your SKU to the Automate Pricing rule you choose. To assign a rule, choose the name of the rule you created using the Automate Pricing tool. To avoid errors, copy and paste the rule name from the tool. When creating a rule, do not use symbols in the rule name.
This field allows you to start repricing on the rule you select, or stop repricing. To start repricing an SKU, enter START in this field after you have entered the SKU, minimum price, maximum price, and rule name in the respective fields. To stop repricing an SKU, enter STOP in this field after you have specified the SKU name. If you enter additional fields, we will process them at the same time as removing the SKU from the rule. For more information on these fields, see the Data Definitions tab of the Automate Pricing file.
(Information only field) This is the Maximum Retail Price inclusive of taxes. You may use this field as a reference to fill other fields.
(Information only field) This is your current selling price at the time of feed download. You may use this field as a reference to fill other fields.
(Information only field) This is your current shipping price at the time of feed download. You may use this field as a reference to fill other fields.
(Information only field) This field gives you an idea around how important is that ASIN in downloaded file list from a customer view perspective. E.g. If your downloaded file has 100 ASINs & they collectively garner 1000 customer views. For an ASIN, which gets 200 customer views, customer view share would be 20% i.e. 200/1000. You can use this column for prioritization.
This section describes the ways in which you can troubleshoot some of the common errors that you may find when using the Automate Pricing file.
Please enter a valid value for all the fields. If you enter an invalid input (for example, an invalid SKU, a character in the minimum/maximum price field, invalid rule name, or input besides START or STOP in the rule-action field), then the row will remain unprocessed.
We run validations on minimum and maximum prices in Automate Pricing. If your minimum or maximum prices are outside of the accepted threshold, then the row will not be processed. Learn more about Minimum and Maximum price validation.
The Automate Pricing file supports up to 30,000 rows per upload. If you input more than 30,000 rows, then all the rows beyond 30,000 rows will not be processed.
You can now choose to continue repricing or pause repricing after submitting a manual price update. Learn more
