Items Removed Due to Excessive Pricing

We want our members to get the most relevant and competitive assortments. In order to achieve this goal, we are periodically reviewing the price of the items you provide. In the event that your listings have egregious price offers, we will be emailing you the list of products with prices that need to be updated. This report is auto-generated every Monday. Here is a copy of the message that you will receive if you have any listings with egregious item prices.

The Report

The email will have link to the report in the form of CSV which will provide you item-level information of items. You can download this report by the following path:

1- Login to the Seller Portal
2- Navigate to seller tools
3- Go to reports tab
4- Click on Item Parity Report
5- Download

This file can be opened in Excel and will contain following details:

  • Item id
  • Product Title
  • Brand, Model #
  • Content class id
  • Item path
  • Threshold violation date
  • Seller Price (including shipping)
  • Competitive price found at external retailers

Process Guidelines

  1. Your items are not only compared with Sears/Kmart items, but they are also compared with other different marketplace sites
  2. The competitive price also includes competitor shipping cost (if any) as well as the seller shipping cost
  3. For the item prices that are flagged, we provide you an opportunity to correct those prices in 10 days
  4. The system will retain the last 4 weeks of these reports in the Seller Portal
  5. If you fail to make the correction, the item will go offline. You can review the “Removed items” report in order to find those items. This report will have the reason code in the comments column, stating “Removed due to high Item price”

Changing the Price

In order to bring offline items back, you need to update the price of such items less than or equal to that of the competitive pricing threshold. You can upload the price of the items by using seller portal/bulk template/XML Feed. You can refer to the article Updating the Pricing.
