Keep it simple: Clever Drop and Clever Raise

Tools retail company from The Netherlands keeps their repricing rules very simple

It’s a common misconception that Repricing (especially if automated) has to be a complicated process.


Our Dutch client, a tool retail company, shows that sometimes the less is more. They decided to keep things simple, but nonetheless, their pricing strategy has improved significantly. 


The client has a Shopify store, with 25K products – 1500 most important ones’ prices monitored by Price2Spy. Even though this industry can be very competitive, our client has decided to focus on 4-8 competitors per product. Also, they made the decision that all Brands/Categories should follow the same repricing rules:


  • Clever drop – the client wants to be 1% cheaper than the cheapest competitor while keeping at least a 15% profitability margin
  • Clever raise – the client wants to be 1% cheaper than 2nd cheapest competitor

How did Price2Spy help?

Price2Spy has a Repricing module that allows clients to define pricing strategies according to their needs. Our client decided to go for a non-automated repricing solution, however, it’s worth mentioning that each of our repricing suggestions was approved by the client.


The Repricing module has been configured in the following way:


  • Repricing is done daily at 8 AM, and the client’s Category Managers log in to Price2Spy around 9 or 10 AM and check repricing opportunities


Last, but not the least, it’s important to point out that on average, Price2Spy calculates:


  • 20 products for Clever Drop – client usually approves 12-15 of these
  • 10 products for Clever Raise – client usually approves 5-8 of these
