Cost based repricing is one of repricers’ most powerful capabilities. It allows you to create a repricing strategy based on how much profit you want to make.

How to create a net margin

In your repricer’s basic info switch "Manually Assign Min/Max" OFF. Once it's off, you'll see a drop-down for the minimum price and one for the maximum price. Select net margin % in your MIN and MAX Price options, and input your desired min and max net margin. Note that you don’t have to create a maximum profit.

Setting up your cost based repricing strategy

To ensure that you’re always profitable, you’ll need to input accurate and up-to-date costs. You can do so, by clicking on import on the menu on the bottom left-hand side of your repricer dashboard. From here, download the template, fill it in, and then upload it again.
