This update delivers new exciting features: Pricing modes now include a “Business rules only” project setting. With this setting, a project does not use Prezzu’s sophisticated optimization tricks — only alignment on competition prices or cost (within bounds) and “magic” (magnetic) prices. If no alignment rules are provided, “optimal” prices are the existing reference prices, […]

It is possible to set a reference period outside the estimation […]
Modern price optimization approaches in e-commerce are built on scientific value-based methods. This article provides an overview of these methods — with the help of a few sparingly selected equations ;-). As a bonus, we review central concepts in pricing such as nested purchase decisions and price elasticity. Objective: modeling demand Predictive pricing is all […]
Prezzu can be used to configure flexible rounding rules to transform optimal prices (output variable OptimalPriceWithTaxes) into “magic” prices. Rounding rules are set in the table above. Each row corresponds to a price range determining a specific rounding rule. The parameters for each interval are as follows: Lower bound. Strict lower limit of the […]
We will present a conference at the E-Commerce Paris event on September 14, 2016 at 12:45 am, Room 10 (pavilion 2.2) : “Pricing in e-commerce: towards extreme price customization?”
