Ready to Get Started with Sellery?
This tutorial is your guide to quickly getting started with Sellery.
Note that when you first sign up if you’re very eager and log into your account right away, you may notice that your inventory has not yet populated. There’s nothing you need to do, this is an automatic process and depending on the size of your inventory it may take up to a few hours.
While you wait, feel free to use Playground mode. Playground mode is a sample inventory that you can use to explore pricing rules, smart lists and all of Sellery’s other features.
The Importance of Costs
Sellery keeps track of a lot of data for you. It imports all the information about listings from Amazon.
But one critical piece of data comes from you: your items’ costs. An item’s cost is used to calculate its minimum price. Minimum price is used as a default floor price in repricing to make sure that you’re not losing money. Other factors that are used to determine minimum price include estimated shipping fees and Amazon costs.
An accurate minimum price is required to make smart repricing decisions and it makes sure that you don’t lose money on sales.
There are a few ways to update costs.
You can edit the cost for an individual item in it’s stock tab, found under Inventory.
However, a faster way to update costs in bulk is to navigate to Settings and then Uploads. There, you can upload a file of all of your SKUs as well as the corresponding costs.
Here I have an Excel file with only two columns. One for my SKU and one with the corresponding cost.
Create a file like this of your own and upload it. Then Sellery will have a cost associated with each item in your inventory.
Getting Started with Smart Lists
After updating costs, it’s time to start creating smart lists.
Smart lists are different views, or segments, of your inventory that you get to define.
Moving on to Pricing Rules
After smart lists, you should look at pricing rules. Add as many or as few pricing rules as you need to reprice your inventory.
Put it all Together in the Pricing Overview
Now under the pricing overview we’re going to match up our smart lists, the segments of our inventory, with the appropriate pricing rule.
Finally, we can go live with our pricing strategies and rules and allow Sellery to get to work. Simply choose the appropriate account and choose “Manage my listings on Amazon.”
