I found a short article and video on the Wall Street Journal website:
Unless you have a subscription – you can’t read the entire article, but the video below covers the information.
The most interesting information is about the pricing fluctuations on Amazon. This is the price wars we often discuss when sellers are striving to gain the “buy box”.
Plus – note that they talk about the fact that it’s just not for shoppers on the Amazon website… but also for buyers using a shopping price comparison website or cell phone app.
This is one of the reasons we are buying thrift store products for resell on Amazon. We find lot’s of products that will sell for high profits and we don’t need to play the re-pricing game.
The video is short – but you do have to get through the advertising to view the meaty content:
Our view is – Stay out of the re-pricing game as much as possible. Buy products with little or no competition.
p.s. We have started a facebook group so we can have lot’s of conversations with you! Please join us here:
