No matter if you’re a small seller hawking a few items a week or a big-time merchant who handles thousands of orders, repricing should never be done manually. It takes too much time, mistakes are too easy to make and there are better solutions out there — like RepricerExpress!
Here are ten reasons to stop manual repricing today.
1. Waste of Time
If you’re the kind of seller who dabbles in single digits, then you may think manual repricing is for you. After all, why pay someone to do it when you can just handle it yourself? This line of thinking can get you into trouble because it’s habit-forming; as your business grows and you expand your inventory, manual repricing will take up more and more of your time and you’ll have to make that sacrifice somewhere else.
2. It’s Not Very Interesting
At first, searching for market prices for your products is easy and interesting because of the novelty of it. You’re doing it for the first time and it’s all so fresh and exciting, yeah? Fast forward a couple of months to when you’ve been performing the same Google searches hours each day and boredom quickly sets in — wouldn’t it be nice to let a computer program take it off your hands?
3. You Can Make Mistakes
We’ve all heard the horror stories about how merchants left a zero off the end and priced their items at a tenth of the intended price. It led to super high volumes of sales, but also huge profit losses, too. And it’s so, so easy to avoid that with auto-repricing because all you have to do is set your min and max prices, and the software won’t exceed those parameters.
