What is the Listing Activity page?

The Listing Activity page acts as a timeline for each individual listing; within your Listing Activity page you will be able to see all your price changes, cost changes, orders, buy box wins/losses and more along with information about each from the past 14 days.

This page gives you a visual display of all the work Informed Repricer has performed for each individual listing. It is an amazing source of information and allows you to visualize the cause and effect of each act taken on a listing whether it be changes made to listing's data, such as min/max prices, or how winning the Buy Box results in an increase in orders.

How can I access the Listing Activity page?

You can access the Listing Activity page directly from the Listings page, Orders page or Price Changes page.

From the listings page, click the menu "squares" icon under the Actions column for an individual listing and click the Activity button

For both the Orders and Price Changes page, click the Activity page icon in any given row to be brought to the Listing Activity page for the corresponding SKU.

What kind of information can be found on the Listing Activity page?

Price Change Timeline and Details

The most important piece of information on the listing activity timeline are Price Change events. Each price change logged by our system is displayed in order on the timeline with and includes a simple view, by expanding the price change, which displays the before and after price.

By clicking on the blue "i" icon you can get more specific details about each individual price change such as your min/max prices at the time, your competition details, and even a summary of why the price change was made.

Listing and Strategy Changes

Any time data is changed on a specific listing via the Edit Listing window or via a manual upload, those changes are shown on the listing activity timeline as a Listing Edited event. This allows you to see the exact changes that were made and better audit the cause of and effect of changes made to a product.

You can also see the affect strategy changes make on a given listing under the Strategy Recalculated events. This will show the changes made to an item as the result of a change in the strategy. For example, changing a strategies Profit-based min price for 5% to 8% will result in a higher min price; this would be reflected on the Strategy Recalculated event.

Buy Box and Stock Updates

The listing activity timeline will show each events whenever the Buy Box has been won or the Buy Box has been lost.

Additionally, the timeline will also display whenever an item has become Out of Stock or has come back in Stock.

Order Data

Orders made on an individual product will show under the Item Sold event in the activity timeline. By expanding this event, you can see the following:

  • Date the item was reported sold by Amazon or Walmart

  • Item Price the item was sold at

  • Order Status

  • Order Number

Rejected Price Changes

When repricing your listings, we will decide which items need to be repriced then package all of these price changes up into a feed. We send this feed out to Amazon and once Amazon receives the feed, they process the requested price revisions and send back a response file.  

Sometimes the response we receive from Amazon is that the price change has been rejected, there are three possible reasons for this:

  • Request has been throttled: Throttling is the process of limiting the number of requests you (or your authorized developer) can submit to a given operation in a given amount of time. Throttling protects the web service from being overwhelmed with request.

  • Marketplace is too new or inactive: If you marketplace is too new or inactive you will either have to wait or activate your marketplace within Seller Central.

  • Invalid Credentials: If your marketplace's credentials are invalid you will have to validate them. If this is the case, you should see a banner at the top of your account with instructions to re-validate your credentials.

To know if any of your price changes have been rejected, you will see a Reject Price Change notification on your Listing Activity page.
