Use Pricebox to monitor your products’ prices, availability, 3p sellers, and enforce MAP pricing across marketplaces.
Check out our webinar Introduction to Pricebox.
1. Upload your product catalog
To use Pricebox, you’ll first need to upload your product listings. You can add your listings individually or in bulk by uploading a CSV file. You may want to add additional columns (referred to as Custom Fields) to your product catalog to help organize, filter, and sort your product catalog.
If you wish to monitor MAP pricing, you should enter the minimum and/or maximum allowed price for each listing. Any price outside this range will be flagged as a MAP violation.
Note: Setting up MAP pricing is optional.
Caution: MAP price guidelines apply from the date you enter them onward. They do not apply retroactively in time. To view current MAP violations, it is best to use the date setting Yesterday or Today.
Once your product catalog has been entered into the system, it can take up to 12 hours to begin collecting pricing and seller information for your listings.
2. Using Pricebox
Once your data has been populated, you will see the information on the Pricebox page within the Reviewbox web application.
Access the Pricebox page from the left-hand green menu by clicking on Products and then Pricebox. The page will look something like this, with the Products tab highlighted at the top of the page.
The Pricebox interface lists the stock level, price, buybox owner, sellers, MAP violations, and other information about each of your products within a specified date range. You can view and export the buy box information or 3p seller details and see charts of the stock level and price history for each seller across different marketplaces.
This view is highly customizable. You can reorder the columns by grabbing the heading and sliding it to the right or left. You can hide columns by clicking on the Columns button on the far right. You can filter and sort the product listings based on any columns, and you can save quick filters for later.
Pricebox also offers a view organized around Sellers. Click on the Sellers tab at the top of the Pricebox page. The page looks like this.
In this view, you can see information about all the sellers offering your products, including the number of products, their seller rating, and whether they are in MAP violation. You can leave notes about the seller or contact them directly using the link to their Amazon profile. From this page, you can also download data exports about the sellers.
If you click on the Seller Name, you can see a list of all your products that the seller is offering, and their prices.
3. Get notified of pricing and buy box changes
Pricebox offers automated alerts to let you know when a 3p seller wins the buy box, or when there is a MAP pricing violation, as well as other notifications. To set up notifications, see How to set up notifications .
