When you create a dynamic pricing strategy, you can define backup actions in case your strategy fails or is blocked by your safeguards. Backup actions ensure you have control over the live prices which are set for your products when the conditions defined in your pricing strategy cannot be met.

Follow the steps below to define the backup actions you would like to apply to your pricing strategy

  1. When creating a dynamic pricing strategy, backup actions can be found at the bottom of the Strategy settings tab. Click on Strategy settings, then click the + sign button below the setting Backup actions when conditions are impossible

  2. Choose backup actions from the list. Notice that you can add several backup actions:

    1. Change price

    2. Price needs to be psychologically appealing

    3. Set to static value (internal)

    A. Change price: choose if you wish to change the price as an absolute value or a percentage. Set desired value or percentage on the lowest row called "Filter value."

    B. Price needs to be psychologically appealing: set how you wish to round the price. Set desired rounding rule on row below Decimal choices." Read more about rounding rules here.

    C. Set to static value (internal): choose if you want the price to be set on some of the options mentioned below. Please notice that using these filters will require you have added this data into Sniffie, either by product feed or by integration.

  3. After defining your pricing strategy’s backup action you can confirm your pricing strategy. Sniffie will do the rest! Carefully defined backup actions ensure that your products will never be priced incorrectly.
