As you can see on the graph the price of these shoes fluctuated a lot in 2 months alternating big discounts for short periods of time and then adjusting the prices to be higher.
How to Set up AI Profit Maximizer?
In this scenario, you resell these sandals, which are high value items, you do not want to sell them too quickly, so we recommend you use AI Profit Maximizer.
When you are setting up AI Profit Maximizer, you need to pay attention to how you are going to configure the “Get the Buy Box Advanced Settings” because this step will determine how the repricer will reprice based on multiple scenarios that might occur like “Suppressed Buy Box,” “Double Buy Box Winners” …etc.
As you can see there are five important settings you need to set up: each setting can define how the Repricer Rule will compete for the Buy Box.

Configuring the advanced setting allows you to customize how the repricer responds in different scenarios. You can choose for the repricer to adjust to your minimum price, maximum price, or your customized price.
For example, if you select the minimum price option, the repricer will lower your price down to but not below the minimum you set whenever the specified conditions are triggered. For example, choosing the maximum price option means it will raise your price up to your maximum when conditions call for it. This advanced configuration empowers precise control over your pricing strategy especially when you want to raise your price when you are the only seller or when you are out of stock.
When You Resell Beauty Products (Fast Moving Items) and You Do Not Have the Buy Box
Selling in the lucrative skincare category on Amazon unlocks major opportunities, as it is a high-demand niche poised to drive traffic and sales. You do not need to be an expert of skincare products; you can simply research the latest trends online. According to our research, we have found that natural ingredients body lotions are trendy, especially this brand; AESOP.
As you can see, the Buy Box Price has been constantly fluctuating for the last two months. The Buy Box Price decreased a couple of days before the Second Prime Day and then increased just before the Second Prime Day started.
In this scenario, you have a top-selling body lotion nearing the end of your limited stock. As a fast-moving product, you want the Buy Box, but you do not want to liquidate your inventory too quickly. In this case, we recommend you implement Match Buy Box repricing strategy to gradually decrease or increase your prices and match the Buy Box.
How to Set up AI Max Profit?
With this strategy, you can choose between 3 repricing rules to build the most efficient repricing plan:
As we mentioned, your goal is to match the Buy Box without being too aggressive. That is why we recommend you choose to use AI Max Profit rule. This will allow the repricer to incrementally adjust pricing up or down to align with the Buy Box without undercutting it.
For example, you can set up AI Max Profit Looping, the repricer will change your offer price every 4 hours based on the Buy Box Price – $0.02. This new price will be “Kept for 40 minutes” while the repricer is on pause for 40 minutes.
Then you can adjust the advanced settings to know how you want to compete to get the Buy Box.

Maintain the Buy Box with a Combination of Repricing Rules
As you can see on Keepa graph, sheet mask price has stabilized over the course of three months and the sellers are often matching the Buy Box.
In this scenario, you have the Buy Box and you do not want to lose it just before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We suggest implementing a repricing rule that targets your profit when you have the Buy Box and you want to stay in the Buy Box for as long as you can.
To achieve this, you can combine multiple repricing rules into a single Conditional Repricing rule and this customized strategy allows you to target profits without aggressively undercutting your competitors. The goal is to retain your hard-earned Buy Box throughout the Q4 sales event. Conditional Repricing allows you to balance price competitiveness and profit-seeking, ideal for maximizing returns during these pivotal shopping days.
In this example, we have set up the first condition, then we added a second condition once the first condition has been met.
If you want to have a better chance to target and get the buy box with conditional repricer, we suggest you can reprice based on Buy Box Wins%. The first primary condition being “Buy Box Win % that is less than or equal to 74%” will trigger AI Sales Maximizer to compete for the Buy Box with a competitive price.
For the following buy box condition “Buy Box Win % that is greater than or equal to 75%” can trigger and apply the “AI Profit Maximizer” to listings that have a less risk of losing the buy box while having the price raised.
