There are times when an item's assigned pricing strategy does not have any qualified competitors to reprice against. In these scenarios, your pricing fallback strategy will kick in. For example, if you are using a Buy Box strategy on Amazon and there is no Buy Box available for your item's ASIN. Our system will then rely on the pricing fallback strategy you've selected to determine the appropriate price for your item.
1. "None" - Your item will stop repricing and will remain at its current price until there are qualified competitors for your primary pricing strategy to reprice against
2. "Preferred Pricing" - You set a preferred price on a per SKU basis in the Pricing Manager or via file upload and your item's price will be set to the preferred price until there are qualified competitors for your main pricing strategy to reprice against
3. "Pricing strategy" - You select a different pricing strategy for your item's repricing when its primary pricing strategy does not have any competitors to reprice against. When competitors return for the main pricing strategy your item will return to using that strategy for its repricing
Note: You must have a Pro Account or above in order to use an alternate pricing strategy as your pricing fallback strategy. Basic level accounts can only use "preferred pricing" or "none".
1. The Buy Box is not available for a particular ASIN and your primary strategy is focused on capturing the Buy Box
2. You are competing against a single competitor using a target rank method and they run out of inventory
