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.
A 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. Utilizing a dynamic pricing strategy allows you more control over how and when you react to competitor pricing. Please notice that competitor availability information is available only for specific modules.
