Games & Toys

Games & Toys industry - price monitoring in such a fragmented market

Specifics

  • The product assortment changes very frequently, as brands compete with each other by introducing new products. The same counts for competitor / retail sites – already fragmented market gets more and more small players on a daily basis
  • The number of competitor sites monitored is usually between 5 and 20. In case of manufacturers / brands, this can grow much higher (over 200 individual sites monitored)

Greatest challenges

  • As for product matching – although we have worked with manufacturers who are in position to supply part numbers (either EAN or MPN or UPC) – we have learned that retail sites hardly ever make use of such unique identifiers on their sites, making manual product matching as practically the only viable solution
  • Frequent price changes
