Secondary page issues, can thwart repricing Read: 1300
Replies: 0
Amazon is in the process of making internal and external upgrades and changes on their site and system. We have been given a heads up concerning this by our Rep to expect these rollouts in the next few weeks.

We are starting to notice some of these and they are causing intermittent issues with some of our reporting, particularly the “Secondary Page” reporting. This is the “New & Used” page of which, we only monitor the “NEW” condition item sellers pricing.

Sometimes these pages are empty and no data can be reported furing that time, or the page or internal structure is in a new format we are unaware of. Sometimes these pages ”flip” back to the original format and structure as if Amazon is testing.

How does this affect you? As Amazon goes through this process, you may experience “Short reports” where we could not obtain all your Asins in the given time period, and / or we may only be able to obtain your main page data (buy box, and top 3 featured sellers) but not the secondary page data. Statistically, this may increase your “not found” stats and lower your “secondary page” stats as well as Amazon and other sellers pricing being reported as not selling or "unknown" if not selling as buy box or top 3 featured.

We appreciate your patience through this transitional period.



Please be aware. Because of these intermittent secondary page issues, we may not be able to find the seller in the position you wish to compete with AND / OR more importantly, we may not be able to find YOUR pricing if you happen to be on the secondary page when we cannot load it.

If this occurs, we will not be able to reprice for you for that item UNLESS you have the following checked in the controls section of your optimized pricing defaults.

CHECK: If no Buy Box owner (or has been excluded), apply formula to next in line merchant as if they owned the Buy Box.

And CHECK this:

If my placement is not found in the top 20 sellers, calculate based on Buy Box or next in line merchants price and shipping as if it was my own.
