November 13, 2019 in Blog

Profit is the driving force behind any retail business! The bottom line of your business is to grow your bottom line. You need to make money in order to keep your business afloat, but you also do not want to price yourself out of the marketplace by pricing your merchandise too high.

What is the best software for fully automated dynamic pricing in e-commerce?

October 17, 2019 in Q&A

Dynamic pricing, price optimization, profit-maximizing software; we find many names for those we love. I will try to answer: what type of software support e-commerce companies use for full automation of changing prices to maximize profit and/or market share.

To keep this text on a high level I will elaborate on the pricing of two important categories of products: key products and tail products.

Key Products
Like traditional retailers, e-commerce companies are keen on being seen as the most price competitive on the key products. Wheater you are a consumer electronics company offering iPhones and Samsung TVs, a street clothing retailer selling Adidas or Nike sneakers, or you are shipping newly released books to your Continue reading »

eCommerce: The Importance of Setting the Right Prices

October 11, 2019 in Blog

Remember the last time you visited your favorite shop? Let’s remember those moments together and see how it relates to e-commerce pricing.

You went into your favorite store, gazing through the stalls briefly, touching a couple of the items for the feel and texture. Suddenly, you found your perfect match. You grab it and place over your body to see if it really looks great on you. You loved the item and the only thing between owning it is the price tag. You find the price tag after a quick search, flip it, and check how much it’s worth.

Yikes!

It costs a lot. It’s not a bargain, it’s not a deal so you give up, and probably leave the shop after similar experiences.

Now, this is a quite common offline shopping story and the example here was mainly for the fashion industry, but if you think that the experience is different in e-commerce you’re wrong! The decision process is way faster than that.

Because in e-commerce pricing, the prices are right there in front of your eyes with the product name, images, and descriptions. Therefore, the e-commerce pricing of any product is one of the most crucial qualifiers when consumers start browsing that product.

Now what?

2019 PriceEdge Retreat

September 30, 2019 in Blog

Two weeks ago, the Stockholm and Bucharest office spent a couple of great days together in Sicily outside Marsala, to work together, reconnect, and plan out our growth plan for the next 12 months. We set up camp in a fantastic Airbnb where we worked, cooked, and shared stories together. As a team, we wanted to celebrate our success, and spend some time away from the everyday hustle, to think about our company vision, and work on strategies for the future.

A retreat with coworkers can test the culture of a company, but for the Price Edge team, it felt more like a family reunion than a company event. We already spend time with each other out of the office, but the benefit of going on a retreat is that it encourages rewarding conversations and collaboration in a new, relaxing environment.

Looking Toward the Future

Our company trip was a roaring success, and we look forward to putting the conversations we had in to work. We’re already looking toward the future with excitement as our team grows quickly to meet the demands we have from our clients.

Company get-togethers are one of the best ways to keep your team engaged and highly motivated. It also helps to bond further between team members while having fun in a different environment.

You can check out some of what we got up in our pictures below.
