When it comes to pricing strategies for Amazon sellers, especially those who’ve crafted their own brands, finding that pricing sweet spot is often easier said than done. 

At Profasee, we’ve harnessed the power of AI, machine learning, and deep learning to demystify this process and help you find the perfect price point. 

The Magic of Demand Forecasting

Before diving into the intricacies of our pricing strategies, it’s important to understand the foundation: demand forecasting. 

Picture this: you’re managing your store’s inventory and trying to predict how much of a particular product you’ll need next month. This is where demand forecasting comes in. 

It’s not just about keeping your digital shelves stocked; it’s about knowing how demand fluctuates with price changes. By understanding this relationship, you can make informed decisions that drive sales and maximize profits.

Crunching the Numbers

The data we analyze to forecast demand is nothing short of impressive (if we do say so ourselves). We collect a wealth of information from Amazon’s SP API and Keepa, including:

  • Sales rank: How your product stacks up against the competition.
  • Price history: Past pricing trends and fluctuations.
  • Stock availability: How often products are in or out of stock.
  • Review count and rating: Customer feedback and product ratings.
  • Buy box status: Who's winning the buy box at any given time?
  • Competitor prices: What your competitors are charging.
  • Promotional data: Insights into discounts and special offers.

All this data feeds into our forecasting models, allowing us to predict demand with remarkable accuracy.

The Role of Price Elasticity Modeling

Once we have our demand forecasts, the next step is price elasticity modeling. This concept might sound like jargon, but it’s essentially about understanding how sensitive your customers are to price changes. Are they likely to jump ship if you hike up prices, or will they stick around because they value your product?

At Profasee, we use deep learning techniques to forecast demand, and these forecasts are then fed into a non-linear, robust price elasticity model. 

This isn’t just a one-time setup either. Our models work on a rolling basis, continuously learning and adapting to new market trends. This way, we’re always in tune with the latest shifts and can adjust prices with greater accuracy.

Dynamic Pricing in Action

So, what happens once our models are trained? We optimize and automate pricing based on various goals:

  • Profit optimization: Maximizing your margins.
  • Revenue optimization: Driving overall sales revenue.
  • Sales velocity: Targeting specific sales speeds that meet your business needs.
  • Surge pricing: Adjusting prices during peak demand periods.
  • Business pricing: Tailoring prices for B2B transactions.
  • ASIN and SKU level pricing: Fine-tuning prices for individual products.

Our system is also inventory-aware, meaning it adjusts prices based on stock levels. If you’re overstocked, prices might be lowered to clear out inventory. Conversely, if you’re running low, prices can be increased to manage demand better.

Why Dynamic Pricing Matters

Dynamic pricing isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a strategy that can significantly impact your bottom line. 

By leveraging advanced AI and machine learning models, we can help you stay competitive in the ever-changing Amazon marketplace. Whether you’re looking to boost profits, increase sales velocity, or manage inventory more effectively, Profasee has you covered.

Our blend of demand forecasting and price elasticity modeling allows us to offer tailored pricing solutions that meet your specific needs. The result? You get the perfect price, every time.

If you’re a private label brand on Amazon, it’s time to embrace the future of pricing. With Profasee, you’re not just guessing—you’re making data-driven decisions that lead to success. Let’s transform your pricing strategy and unlock new levels of growth together.
