Configure a Trigger to signal when there is no USED FBA competition.
When an item has no FBA offer but has high sales velocity, you can still buy when there are low merchant fulfilled prices. This will allow you to ship as FBA and make a higher profit than merchant fulfilled offers. Please follow the steps to configure one of your triggers like this.
- Uncheck step 2 Minimum MF price
- Tap Skip in step 3.2 to ignore used offers.
- Tap 5 in step 3.3 to use the highest new price.
- Uncheck step 4 Compare to used BB because Amazon will use merchant fulfilled offer as used buy box offer when there are no FBA offers.
So this trigger will only use FBA or the 5th highest new offer as the target price. If there is no FBA offer, the trigger will use the 5th new offer price, which is usually a higher price as the target price to check if it can have a higher profit than the trigger’s minimum profit value.
This will allow Scoutly to trigger books with low MF offers, but no Used FBA competition, and with a high sale velocity.
