Products list

Learn more about the data provided in the Products List section.

Next we will define each of the elements of this page to clarify their functions and the data that can be visualized in each of them.

Switching between countries or stores

If you are monitoring several countries or stores you can switch from this drop-down menu.

Also, you will be able to request adding a new store from the button + Add a new store/country.

 

Using the graph and action buttons


  1. By clicking on the Action buttons on the left you can filter and get to see products of your catalog which price/MSRP is: Cheaper, Equal price and More expensive than market average.

  2. The Graph on the right shows you to what extent your products’ price/MSRP is lower, equal or higher to the market’s average price. By clicking on the graph, you can select the range of products included in those percentages referring to prices below, above or equal to market average.

Note: These action buttons apply over products, not retailers/sellers. For instance, If a retailer that you follow sells a connected product cheaper than you, that specific product will enter into the filter ‘more expensive’. If this product has more than one connected rival/seller, those rivals/sellers might be selling that product cheaper, or at equal price, being this information included in the filter, and represented by green and yellow color as usual.

Analyzing the products section


  1. The grey heart in the left column indicates which of the products in your catalog has been marked as a favorite. Either because you consider that it is a top-seller or because it is a product which requires special attention from your side.

  2. Product: In this column you see the products included in your catalog. You can always filter this list.

  3. Price/MSRP:

    • IF YOU ARE A RETAILER: this is the price of the product.

    • IF YOU ARE A BRAND: this is the price established by the brand/manufacturer to the retailers or MSRP.

  4. AVG: The product average price of all of the rivals'/retailers' prices.

  5. PI AVG or Price Index Average: An average of all the prices and how they compare to yours. This index can be below or above 100%. When it is set below, it means that the product is being sold by competitors at an average price that is lower than the price you’ve set. Likewise, when that index is above 100%, it means that competitors are selling at an average price which is higher than your price. Finally, if the product is being sold by other retailers at an equal or similar price as yours, the percentage will be near 100%. At this point, bear in mind that the PI AVG is always an average, so it can happen that the average PI for a product is above 100, but there are still some competitors who may be selling this specific product below the market’s average price.

  6. Dif. chp or Difference with the cheapest: Expresses the difference between your price and the cheapest price found in competitors.

  7. Retailers: All the retailers and the percentage of your MSRP/price in comparison with the seller’s/rival’s price in question.

Information provided in this section can become really useful in negotiations with distributors

Price index average or PI AVG formula is:

AVG Price (of the connected products)        
               ____________________________________________ * 100 = PI AVG

Price (coming from the feed)                

Example: 

307,73                                               
__________ * 100 = 127, 1611 16 ≈ 127

242                                                

 

IMPORTANT!

When you filter by a retailer, sometimes you can see a difference between those numbers.

  • #1 represents the number of products in your catalog.

  • #2 is the most restrictive:

  • Only connected products

  • Only with stock

  • Price difference

> -80 % and < 500 %



Changing the order of products through different criteria


 

By using the Percentage dropdown menu, you can select how price differences are displayed across retailers: by Price Index, Percentage and Price Value.

When clicking on the Export button we have two options:

  • Product per row: A file with the same structure as in Saas, one product per row and one retailer per column.

  • Seller per row: A file with a structure in which we will see one retailer per row.

In addition, we can now click on the Custom Export button to request a customized report that meets our needs.

You can also change the order used in the visualization of the products by clicking in one of the options/criteria available in the Order dropdown button.

 

Filtering products

If you need to filter your products, you will find the most popular filters in the top right of the screen, as Category, Tags or Retailers.

You can always go for further product filtering by clicking on ‘Advanced’, above in the right corner next to the searching bar.

  1. Filter by text/Codes/EANs/brands/category/tags and favorites products.

  2. Prices: possibility to select products according to a specific price range or by comparison between you and the retailers, selecting if you want to search for cheaper, more expensive or equal price products.

  3. Stock: you can filter products depending on the status of the stock reported by the retailers.

  4. Retailers: you can choose to include all the retailers you’re following in your search, or only specific ones.

  5. Connected Products: you can get to see all your products, only not connected products, or only products that have already been connected. Besides, you can search by number of connections.

 

Saving searches as reports

When we frequently perform the same type of searches, it is advisable to make use of the Reports. Creating a Report is extremely easy. You simply need to follow steps explained in the Reports and Feeds section.
