Frequently asked questions on price and product monitoring

How should prices be monitored?

We recommend monitoring the largest online stores (usually less than 10-15, depending on the country), price comparison sites and auction portals.

I already monitor price comparison websites, is it enough?

Definitely not, for several reasons: 

  • Stores do not include their full offer on comparison websites. 
  • Reliable information about the availability of the goods is often lacking. 
  • Usually, in stores, there are several product cards for the same product (different prices, sets, promotions) 

What should be monitored?

  • Stores – prices, availability, promotions. 
  • Price comparison websites prices. 
  • Auction portals – price, the quantity for sale. 

Why I should monitor the prices, availability, and sales of my products?

  • Putting pressure on the stores that first lowered the price (not legal in every country :). Maintaining the appropriate margin level on the market is considered one of the key challenges, especially in the case of low-margin products.
  • You can monitor the price flexibility.
  • Detection of potential frauds (financial, tax, customs) – stores with very low prices.
  • For some chains, it is possible to determine the availability of goods in individual stationery stores.

Why it’s worth monitoring and observing competitors' prices?

  • You can track changes in the pricing strategy. 
  • Based on sales data from auction portals, you can determine the popularity of products and even try to estimate the effectiveness of the promotion of competitors’ products. 
  • Comparing sales with the competition also allows you to increase the quality of analysis of your promotional activities (elimination of external factors). 
  • You can easily monitor the number of competitors’ products available in stores (shelf share). 

Do you need to monitor prices in foreign stores?

The answer here is not clear cut, because it depends on several factors, e.g. the cost of shipping. However, currently, the boundaries in online commerce are blurring, the customer can, for example, choose any Amazon store from Europe and order the goods where it is the cheapest. So, if there is no logistic and tax barrier, the availability of cheaper goods abroad will affect sales in the local market. 

What are the benefits of monitoring prices, availability, and sale of products

  • Price monitoring – detecting which store lowered its prices first – support in managing surcharges. 
  • Analysis of the impact of competitors’ price changes on your sales – the diagnosis lets you develop a strategy of reaction to changes in competitors’ prices. Example: competitors’ price reduction causes a decrease in sales of our products. Reaction: lowering the prices of our products immediately after the competitors’ price change. 
  • More detailed monitoring of the effectiveness of your promotional activities. This is especially important, as relying on sales reports provided by stores can be very misleading. 
  • Shelf share comparisons for more accurate management. 

For some chains, it is possible to determine the availability of goods in individual stationery stores.
