Similar Products Pricing

With the latest feature of Eva, you can now both monitor and compete with similar ASINs. This is a handy feature especially for private labels who want to keep a close watch on substitute products and compete with these substitutes to increase their own sales. 

1. To use this feature, go to the pricing management page. Find the ASIN for which you want to enable ‘Similar ASIN Pricing’ by filtering the ASINs.

2. Click on the “Pricing Actions and Analytics” button for the chosen ASIN. Please note that pricing must be “enabled” for the ASIN in order to use the “Similar ASIN Pricing” feature. Please see Figure 1 below.

10. When you choose to compete, a pop-up screen will appear. On this screen, you are required to enter a value for “Percentage” and choose an option for “Percentage Calculation Option“.


Please note that the percentage value can be between 1 and 99 and the ‘Percentage Calculation Options’ are “above” and “below”, which means you will lower or increase your competition max price on a certain percentage based on the listing price of your competitor. Please see Figure 7 below.

13. If your potential max price is not between your min and max price, you can save this potential max price for future calculation; however, it will not be used by Eva as a valid price. Please see Figure 9 below. Indicating this, there will be a “NA” symbol next to the potential price. When you hover over the “NA” symbol, you will see the explanation. Please see Figure 10 below.

15. Once you calculate the Potential Max price for the ASINs with which you want to compete, the lowest “Potential Max Price” is determined as the “Competition Max Price” for the competition. This price is marked with a star and displayed in green color. Please see arrow 1 in Figure 11 below. 

16. You can also track the current Max price on the upper right side. Please note that the listing price of the competitors will be extracted every six hours from Amazon and each max price will be calculated with the most up-to-date figures. Please see arrow 2 in Figure 11 below.

On the chart, the relevant data over the last thirty days is displayed, starting from the day you add a similar product to your list. On this chart, the competition is illustrated with ⯁ shape, and monitoring is illustrated with ■ shape.

18. You can hover over a day and a pop-up list, showing your sales price and your competitors’ sales price, will appear. When you click on the date, you can also see the “Similar Products List” for the chosen day down below. Please see Figure 12 below.
