Issue:

Database search is missing some FBA offers or used/new prices are not continuous (missing one or more prices in between)

Explanation:

Amazon MWS program sorts the lowest 20 used and new prices into different groups based on the condition, seller rating and fulfillment channel, and only returns the lowest price from each group (not the complete 20 lowest prices). This imposes limitations to display FBA offers and continuous prices on our app. This same limitation apply to other scouting vendors as well.

Conclusion:

  • The program will not be able to display used FBA price when it is higher than the 20th used price, or new FBA price when it is higher than the 20th new price.
  • Due to Amazon only returns lowest price from each group after it sorts the lowest 20 prices into different groups. The program will not be able to always display continuous prices, but will return lowest used and new price.
