YoYo Spiral Upward Effect

It’s a competitive market out there and everyone has their own winning strategies. Stay ahead of the game by setting a YoYo Spiral Upward Effect to spike the price, have your competitors follow, then drop again to keep the buybox to yourself and win the buy box.

Since competitors may be using their own algorithms to follow your pricing decisions the YoYo spiral upward effect makes them follow you up. Allowing you to keep the advantage of being the first to decide the next price.

Please Note:

No other pricing rule will work during this period and there needs to be at least one competitor for this setting to work. If competitors increase their prices in the entered time interval, the setting will be applied again.

This feature is available store wide or on single SKUs to maximize the utility provided to you. To enable this feature, you will need to first navigate to the “Pricing Management” tab of the platform. See Figure 1.
