- Automatic separate Price and Quantity updates (Such as Amazon, Walmart Marketplace, Sears)
- No automatic Price updates, but manual updates are allowed – (Such as Google Shopping)
- No price updates of any kind (Such as Wayfair, Home Depot, Target)
Note that if you disconnect a listing for these channels from inventory updates, Sellercloud will stop sending both the inventory and the price.
For many channels, after you save price changes, you must push them manually.
To push a specific product’s price changes to a specific channel:
- On the Product Details Page, click Toolbox and select a Channel Properties page.
- Click Actions and select Update Price on Channel.
To push multiple products’ price changes to one or more channels:
- Go to Manage Catalog.
- Find and select the products you want to update.
- Click the Actions icon and select Update Prices on Channel.
- Select the channel(s) and click Update.
- This action will schedule a Queued Job. Once processed, the prices will update.
With Sellercloud’s Price Manager, you can manage a product’s Site Cost, Site Price, and prices for multiple channels at once.

- On the Product Details Page, click Toolbox and select Prices.
- Click Edit.
- Click Channels Pricing Manager (the three dots icon).
- Select channels on the left.
- Click the Plus icon in the middle.
- Click Apply.
To use the Price Manager:
- The Price Manager grid shows the SKU under the Product ID column and its price on the previously selected channels. If there are shadow SKUs, you’ll see them below the parent SKU.
- Click Edit.
- First, you may want to update the Site Cost and Site Price fields.
- The Set All to Default option on the left will set the Site Price as the selling price for all channels.
- To use the Site Price only for selected channels, click the Use Default icon below the channel.
- Alternatively, enter a channel-specific price into each channel’s price field.
- When ready, click the Revise prices on all channels icon on the top right.
Pricing-Related Client Settings
You can configure the following pricing-related Client Settings:
- Put Order On Hold If Selling Price Is Less Than % of SiteCost – Compares the channel’s selling price to the product’s Site Cost based on a percentage you specify. If an order comes in with a selling price lower than the percentage of the Site Cost, the order will be put on hold.
- Validate Selling Price is greater than % of SiteCost – Requires products’ selling price to be at least a set percentage above the Site Cost. For example, to require the selling price to be at least 10% above the Site Cost set this to 110%.
- Require To Set Default Price When Creating Product – Makes the Default Price a required field when creating a new product. This field sets the product’s Site/Retail Price.
- Put Order On Hold If Selling Price Is Less Than % of SitePrice – Compare the channel’s selling price to the product’s Site Price based on a percentage you specify. If an order comes in with a selling price lower than the percentage of the Site Price, the order will be put on hold.
- Set Customer Status ‘Require Attention’ instead of updating OrderStatus to OnHold – This is a subsetting of the setting above. The same rules apply; however, instead of putting the order On Hold, it will be marked as Requires Attention.
- Use Site Price When Splitting Orders – Whenever an order is Split, the child order will use the Site Price of a product SKU if it has its Site Price displayed.
- Add Flag to Inventory Arrivals Page – Shows a flag on the Inventory Arrivals page after the product’s Average Cost changes. Hovering over the flag shows the original and new values, which reminds you to adjust the Site Price accordingly.
- Enable Default Price for eBay – Enables the Display Use default Site Price as eBay BIN price setting to appear within the Company Settings > eBay > General Settings. After enabling the company setting, you will see a checkbox on the eBay Product Properties page that allows you to default the Buy It Now Price to the Site Price.
- Force Buy it now price to SitePrice when using Default Price for EBay – Enabled to force the Site Price to be the Buy It Now Price for all eBay products.
- Automated Product Publishing Auto Update Site Price From Amazon Price – Automatically updates products’ Site Price based on their Amazon Price.
- Restrict Enabling Stop Loss Price – Only allows Sellercloud users with the Client Admin Role to enable the Min Selling Price for Amazon.
- Do Not Allow Stop Loss Price Below – Prevents products’ Min Selling Price for Amazon, which is the narrowest margin of profit you are willing to accept, from being set below a specific percentage of their Site Cost.
- Auto Save WholeSale Prices When Order Is Created – Enable to automatically save the Wholesale Prices on orders and apply them to future wholesale orders from the same customer. This setting doesn’t change any previously existing wholesale orders.
- Enable Cost Plus Based Wholesale Prices – Shows the Enable Cost-Based Pricing checkbox on the Customer page > Order Options panel > Discounted Price Options. When you check this box and enter a Percent To Add, Sellercloud uses the Site Cost, Last Cost, or Average Cost and generates the price accordingly. For example, if you set it to 10% and use an Average Cost that is 150, the price will be 150 + 15 (10% of 150) = 165.
- Enable SitePrice Based Wholesale Discount – Enable to show the Enable SitePrice-Based Discount checkbox on the Wholesale Customer > Order Options panel > Discounted Price Options. This will discount all products for the customer. The discount will be applied to the Site Price.
- Enable Custom Price Calculation for [Channel Name] – Enables a Custom Price Calculation for a specific channel.
SellerCloud has multiple tools to help you manage pricing across multiple channels. Pricing is managed from within SellerCloud, so you need not directly access the marketplace portal. Prices can be adjusted based on fixed rules, or they can be re-priced based on competitors’ prices using integrated third-party software.
You can also take measures to prevent selling the item at a price that’s too low.
You can set and manage pricing in several ways:
- Default Product Price – Inventory > Product Home page > find the Site Price field (this is the product’s default price). Enter the price and save. You can track price changes by clicking the + sign next to the Site Price field. The price history log will show the change’s timestamp and also log the user who changed it.
- Channel Specific Pricing – On each of the product’s channel properties pages, such as the Amazon Properties page, you can set a different price specific for that channel, or you can use the default Site Price by checking the Use Default box. After saving the change, the default price will appear in the Amazon Price field. By default, the Use Default option is enabled.
- eBay BuyItNow Pricing – To allow the default Site Price as the eBay BIN price, save the Client Setting Enable Default Price for eBay.
- After enabled, there will be an option on the eBay General Settings page called Display Use default Site Price as eBay BIN price. Enabling that option will place a Use Default checkbox next to BIN Price on the product eBay Properties page. This checkbox is enabled by default but it can be turned on and off.
- Manage Channel Pricing from single page – Click Inventory > Product Home > Toolbox > Prices. You can also find the “Prices page” by clicking the Manage Prices link next to the Site Price. In the grid, the product displays at the beginning of the row, with columns for pricing on all enabled marketplaces. If there are shadow SKUs, they will display in rows beneath the Parent SKU. You can now easily set pricing for each marketplace individually, or you can check the Use Default box to use the Site Price as that marketplace’s price. The Check All button will set the default price as the selling price for all channels. The default price will display after saving the edit.
- SellerCloud can reprice your products based on fixed rules, such as estimated shipping costs or profit margins. Listings can also be repriced based on competitor pricing by integrating with third-party repricing platforms. See the Managing Repricing page for more information. Note: Creating a repricing procedure is subject to customization fees.
- Custom Price Calculation for Channels – Send a customized price to a specific marketplace using a custom price calculation. The custom calculation can be based on any variable or logic, including sending a price that is a set percentage greater than the site cost. Using a custom price calculation, the system will ignore the channel price, and will send a calculated price based on your parameters. Custom calculations can be created by SellerCloud Support. Note: Creating a custom calculation is subject to customization fees. A Client Setting enables a custom calculation for each channel. When enabled, the following icon will appear next to the price on the channel setting page:
SellerCloud also has safeguards to help prevent selling an item at too low of a value. This may
happen through human error, for example, when a wrong price was entered, or it may occur
when the cost of the item adjusts significantly.
Settings > Client Settings.
- Put Order on Hold if Selling Price is less than ____% of SiteCost – You can configure this
Client Setting to put an order on hold if the selling price is less 110% percentage, for example, of
the Site Cost.
- Set Customer Status ‘Requires Attention’ instead of updating OrderStatus to OnHold – Instead of putting order “On Hold,” the order will be sent to the “Requires Attention” tab.
- Validate Selling Price is greater than % of SiteCost – For example, if you want the price to
always be at least 10% more than the Site Cost, enter 110%. If the price entered is less than that
amount, an error message will display when saving the product after the edit.
While this will ensure that the site price was entered correctly the first time, you may want to
change the site cost dynamically to make sure that the Site Price is always 110% more than the
site cost. Locate the following Client Settings (Cost Related section):
- Update Product SiteCost based on PO LastCost – Automatically updates Site Cost based on the cost of the item as it was received in the last Purchase order. As the cost of the item changes, the site price will adjust accordingly.
- Update SiteCost when updating AverageCost – Automatically updates Site Cost based on the
item’s average cost. As the cost of the item changes, the site price will adjust accordingly.
- Protect Site Cost – Prevents any user without a Client Admin role from editing the site cost.
- Add Flag to Inventory Arrivals Page – The inventory arrivals page is located on the Inventory
menu. All items received in purchase orders are displayed in the grid on this page. When the
Client Setting Add a Flag to Inventory Arrivals Page is enabled, an icon will flag items whose
average cost has changed. Hovering on the icon will show the original and new values. You can
now adjust the site price accordingly to ensure that the selling price is what you want it to be.
