When you start repricing an SKU, Automate Pricing applies basic validation rules to your minimum and maximum prices (optional), to ensure that your price does not go too high or too low. If you did not set a maximum price, Automate Pricing will protect customer trust on your behalf by ensuring that your offers are not priced significantly higher than recent prices so that your offers remain eligible to become the Featured Offer (Buy Box). Our validation rules include the following:
In most cases, if your maximum price is less than 2 times your current price you will not see a maximum price error. For example, if your price is £100 and your maximum price is £550.99, you should not see a maximum price error.
You can list your SKU for greater than or less than the Automate Pricing validation rules allow by setting your price manually via Manage Pricing or feeds. If you set your minimum and maximum prices manually in either of these two ways, the Automate Pricing rules will not apply.
