Price competitively and get more sales
Whether you’re starting to sell on Amazon, or you’ve been selling for years now, one of the most important steps to success is the pricing of the product. Even before internet retailing became popular, customers chose products based on their prices.

So how do you set that price?

Pricing is, like many things, a balance of instinct and rules. You need to keep in mind the below-mentioned variables, before pricing any product that you wish to sell on Amazon.

You want to be profitable (Find your lowest price)
You want to maximize profits (Find your highest price possible)

First, consider all of your costs, and predict what your prices would be for you to be profitable with those costs included. Second, your price must be competitive enough to appear on the first page of the Amazon search results when a relevant keyword corresponding to your product is searched.

How to boost profit maximization?

In order to boost profit maximization, you can better your sourcing. When you keep a check on sourcing your products the costs can change depending on availability of raw materials, scale of production, and availability of the raw material.

How can Amazon help?
