XML

We provide a Pricing Management API call that uses the PUT method to update the pricing of existing items. The data that is uploaded during the PUT call must be XML data. You are able to update sell price and add sale prices with their associated start and end dates via this feed.

Strikethrough Pricing

Sears Marketplace sellers are highly encouraged to price showing a savings model. You can easily implement this by using bulk excel, XML/API, or directly within the Seller Portal. You just need to add pricing into “standard” and “sale price” sections in your integration method. You must add a start and end date as well to ensure success. Sears members are savvy price shoppers seeing the savings is advantageous to your business. Strike-through pricing will greatly increase your sales!

Note: Sale price should always be less than the Standard price, if not you will receive an error “The ‘Sale Price’ can’t be greater than ‘Standard Price’”. Please locate the item in question that is causing this error and make the necessary changes to the pricing and re-upload the item.
