    marketplace - The marketplace in which the product is sold (e.g. AUK is Amazon UK).
    merchant_id - Your Amazon Merchant/Seller ID. You will find this in the URL of your Amazon storefront. It will look something like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/shops/storefront/index.html?ie=UTF8&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sellerID=ANZE9ULNDLILK
    price_min - The minimum landed price (shipping included) that you are prepared to sell at. Enter this in the local currency for each marketplace. This is only used with min/max pricing. If you wish to use margin-based pricing then set this to a safe, high value.
    price_max - The maximum landed price (shipping included) that you want to sell at. In the absence of any competition, this price will apply. Enter this in the local currency for each marketplace.
    repricer_name - The name of the repricer rule that wish to apply to this SKU. The names of your repricers can be found in the My Repricers section of the dashboard under Name. An inactive repricer can also be specified here.

Tips on how to use this tool

Tip #1 Additional Headers

Add more headers to your .csv file so you can use the data to configure your products that bit more. You can add the following:

Sales Rank - The sales rank captures the items popularity in its category.
Product Name - Title of product as listed in Amazon.

Directions: Settings>Repricer>Bulk Upload File Fields


Tip #2 Smart Filter

Use your spreadsheet application to sort through your products. The following examples below are given in google sheets. Products can be sorted in most applications by selecting a smart filter and from here you can look at a high to low seller count and adjust prices as necessary.

Tip # 3 Costs in Currency U

In Repricer Ultimate you can set your costs which calculate your min/max prices in different currencies. Set your costs in USD, EUR or GBP and we'll take care of daily currency fluctuations using European Central Bank daily rates.

What about Bulk actions? Yes but in bulk actions you can only update a percentage or amount on your current price.)
