What is a dynamic pricing strategy?

Dynamic pricing is a pricing strategy which utilizes variable prices, instead of fixed ones. This allows businesses to adjust their price offerings to account for changing demand and market trends, or to utilize own internal data to trigger a desired pricing action.

A market based dynamic pricing strategy is beneficial for you when you have highly price-sensitive products, and it's crucial to react fast to changes in competitor prices. Please notice that competitor availability information is available only for specific modules.

Utilizing a dynamic pricing strategy allows you more control over how and when you react to competitor pricing or trigger a price change based on chosen factors. A rule-based dynamic pricing strategy allows you to automatically react to a changed situation to reach your targets more efficient.

There are two ways to create a dynamic pricing strategy:

  1. Dynamic pricing strategy to react on a changing market situation

  2. Dynamic pricing strategy that utilizes own internal data to trigger a price action
