Pre Sales: Amazon Settings

Prices

In the Prices tab you can manage different settings related to the products’ price to be published on the marketplace, such as the VAT , marketplace commissions, and price markups.

The various options that can be activated from this panel are shown Below:

Include VAT Price: indicate the VAT percentage, if applicable.

Include Marketplace Fees: these fees are calculated based on the marketplace categories. To add the VAT to these commissions, check the relevant box.

Round to: use this option to round off prices to decimal places / units.

 % Prices Markup: insert a percentage mark-up to add to the products in the catalog. To apply a percentage discount, enter a percentage with a negative sign (eg “-5.00”).

Fixed Prices Markup: insert a fixed mark-up to be added to the list price. To apply a fixed discount, enter an amount with a negative sign (eg “-5.00”).

 

Management of Lowest Price/Repricing

The Lowest Price/Repricing feature allows you to lower the price of a product below the best current price.

The calculation of the lowest price is only enabled for Amazon and only works for products with an ASIN CODE on which the system has already downloaded the best current price. Our staff is updating the catalogs to make the ASIN code available.

To enable it, use the Lowest Price Settings button.

Check the Use Lowest Price checkbox.

The repricing is done by combining 3 parameters:

Percentage Step: margin [best current price] – [catalog price], can be 0

Fixed Descending Step: amount to subtract (typically it will be a few cents or 0)

Minimal Accepted % Markup: percentage of your margin, calculated on the normal (non-discounted) price, below which the margin of the best price must not go.
Example: if this value is 50%, and without considering the best price I have a margin of 10, then your margin with the best price (including commissions) must not go below 5.

We suggest making some simulations to check how the calculation is made and what the selling price will be.

Specific settings

Shippings

It’s not possible to choose the shipping method for Amazon, the only setting available are:
– Shipping costs (fixed shipping costs, which, however, will ALWAYS be included in the price)
days of order preparation (N.B. the value must be greater or equal than 1, it can not be zero)
Note: these days (PREPARATION) are added to the SHIPPING days set on Amazon Seller Central Settings -> Shipping Settings.

Shippings Template

The shipping template can be added to the offers in the Shipping tab using the Set Marketplace Rule button.

In the window, type in the appropriate text box the exact name of the rule you want to use.

The rule can only be used for products with ASIN. If the ASIN is NOT present the system will make a first loading with the normal settings, ie without using the shipping rule; then download the ASIN associated with the offer and then make subsequent uploads using the set shipping rule.

The Order processing time is sent together with the template name, so it must always be specified.

Once a shipping template has been inserted as a Marketplace rule, to return to the default shipping template of Amazon, write in the “Marketplace Rule” the name of the default template (as it appears on Amazon). It is therefore not sufficient to remove the shipping rule.

Filters

CAUTION

Nothing will be uploaded to the marketplace until Inclusion filters are defined, we suggest setting up a filter with few products first as a test.

The Filters tab is used to decide what to publish by applying Inclusion or Exclusion filters based on various parameters:
Shop category
Brand name
SKU code
EAN code
Price range
Min / Max Qty
Weight range

The products in the catalog that match the Inclusion Rules will be published.

The products in the catalog list that match the Exclusion Rules will NOT be published.

To create a new rule, use the Add button.

Choose the categories (select them from the drop-down menu), the price range, weight of products, even a particular SKU code or a brand to include or exclude.

– To filter some brands of products, insert in the same row, field Brands, the names (spaces included) separated by commas; There must be no space between the commas.

Example: canon, infinity light, zyxel

– In the example below, for Local Catalog on Amazon, ONLY the Informatics category will be published. All the rest of the catalog will NOT be published.

– To immediately view how many products will be uploaded, tick Simulate Insertions  Counters in the lower part of the Settings window,  and click Confirm.

Categories

In the Categories tab, you can view and edit the shop/catalog categories, and assign each one of them a marketplace category.

Associate marketplace categories to store categories

On the left side of the grid the list categories are displayed (up to 3 levels).

On the right hand side, by clicking on the various keys, it’s necessary to set the corresponding marketplace categories by choosing them from the list.

Each category corresponds to a percentage of marketplace fees, you can check those % in the %Sales Fee column.

You have to pay close attention and set the marketplace categories correctly, because those percentages will be applied on the product’s final price.

Click  to set the chosen category (in our example, the “Consumer Electronics” category will be used).

The marketplace category will be associated with that one in the store.

Set the categories on multiple lines

When setting up the marketplace categories, you can associate the same category value with multiple lines.

1) select multiple lines of categories by ticking the relative box
2) click  on one of the selected lines
3) set the category by choosing it from the tree
4) give the OK and choose “Yes” when confirmation is requested.

The same marketplace category will be set in all selected rows.
