Getting ahead of your competition is a never-ending and time-consuming challenge. Price is often the most critical factor for customers, who will usually not even consider your product if it’s just slightly more expensive.

Using a repricer helps sellers actively stay on top of their competitors and capture the lion’s share of the Buy Box. The Walmart Marketplace Repricer is designed to do just that for the Walmart Marketplace.

In this article, we’ll explain what a repricer is and does, explain everything there is to know about the Walmart Marketplace Repricer, and how to make the most of it with Sellercloud.

What Is a Repricer?

A repricer is an e-commerce solution that keeps product pricing dynamic by monitoring competitor prices and updating your product prices automatically, keeping you competitive and saving you time from researching and manually updating prices.

Repricers are used on many different marketplaces, and the primary reason to use a marketplace repricer is to win the ‘Buy Box.’

On the Walmart Marketplace, the Buy Box is the box on the right side of a product listing. It displays what the algorithm has determined as the best option available for the product (where it says ‘Add to cart’).

Winning the Buy Box means your product will be the first option shown to buyers on the product page. 

Buyers are more likely to click buy on what is shown in the Buy Box than to look into others on offer, which are shown below ‘Compare all sellers.’ This is especially true for mobile users.

If your competition can reprice faster, you will fail to win the Buy Box and lose sales because your pricing is higher than your competitors. High-volume sellers and sellers who sell highly competitive products benefit the most from repricers.

However, price is not the only factor determining who wins the Buy Box. It also considers a seller’s location, return rate, reviews, shipping times, and other factors.

You could match the price as the lowest product on offer, but their reviews are higher than yours, so they will continue to win the Buy Box.

That said, price is the most important and only factor you can control, and regular repricing directly impacts your ability to gain and hold the Buy Box.

Click ‘Compare all sellers’ on any product, and you will notice that they are usually at a higher price than what’s shown in the Buy Box.

When using a repricer, you should set maximum and minimum product pricing limits. You must consider shipping costs and how pricing will impact your margins.

Pricing a product too low will harm profitability, so you must set rules to prevent a ‘race to the bottom’ that could be bad for your business.

Repricer rules are not always to match the lowest price; they can follow other logic and complex rules to maximize gaining the Buy Box and protecting your margins.

How Does Walmart’s Repricer Work?

Natively built for the Walmart Marketplace, Walmart’s repricer is designed to help Walmart sellers meet the needs of modern shoppers.

The Walmart Marketplace Repricer is a free, automated pricing tool that helps sellers stay ahead of the competition in a world where online prices are constantly changing.

Sellers can pick the pricing strategy that best fits their needs, and the repricer automatically adjusts prices accordingly, saving time and helping their products stand out.
