Today I’m going to show you how to get rid of high pricing errors on Amazon.
Items can get stranded for a variety of reasons.
Some can be fixed automatically and others will require several steps.
Other times, you won’t be able to unstrand certain inventory and it will get sent back to you.
It’s part of the risk you take on when selling goods on Amazon.
Risk and reward go hand in hand.
You cannot expect to make money without taking on risk.
Things will go wrong, items will get returned and products will be damaged by the customer.
These are not reasons you should give up or stop being a producer.
Only consumers get guarantees that they can return their products at any moment for a full money-back refund.
That is why consumers become broke and producers get rich.
That being said, a high pricing error is something that you can fix and is not something you should be worried about.
This tends to happen frequently if you do what I do and price your items high when you send them into Amazon, as detailed in my Bqool repricing guide.
You want to check your stranded inventory frequently to make sure that none of your items have high pricing errors, and if they do, you’ll have to fix it otherwise your listings will not be active.
If they are not active, your customers will not see them.
I went into my stranded inventory by clicking on “Fix Stranded Inventory” as photographed in the first picture in this article. This will show up on your Seller Central homepage if you get one of these errors.
As you can see, I have some Nike women’s leggings that got a potential high pricing error because it was priced at $137.03.
The reason this happened was because I typically set my prices high when creating a batch in Inventory Lab.
I do this so I can capitalize on high prices and so that my listing price can become the maximum price value when my listings get synced into Bqool (my repricer).
That being said, sometimes the price is detected as too high by Amazon and they will delist your listing.
Here’s how to fix it.
Go to the side menu, click on Pricing and then Pricing Health.
Find the product that is stranded in the list of products.
As you can see, Amazon’s buy box is at $38.49.
My price is at $137.03.
No wonder I got a high pricing error.
Let’s go to Bqool (or any other repricer you might be using).
This guide will show you how to find the listings in Bqool.
Click on Listings -> Delisted Listings.
Go back to the pricing health page and copy the ASIN of the item you want to find.
Paste it into the search bar in delisted listings.
Set a new minimum and maximum price based on the suggested price Amazon gives you.
According to Amazon, the List price is $90, the Average price is $44.11 and the Current Buy Box price is $38.50.
I’ll set my minimum price to be $38.50 and my maximum to be $90.
I might still get a high pricing error, but then I’ll just adjust it again.
You can also set it to $38.40/$44.11 if you want to stay conservative.
Save your new minimum/maximum and now go back to the pricing health page.
Enter a price that is within your new minimum/maximum and press Save.
It should become active again once Amazon reviews your new price.
That’s all there is to it.
Make sure to keep an eye on your stranded inventory so all of your items are active and selling.
