In a smart move, Getprice have introduced a category bidding system for their customers.

Now, if you want to appear at the top of a category or search, you can bid more to appear there. With enough customers feeding products to the site now (they say 1.5 million products online), this is a move that should enable them to generate more revenue.

I have included their email to feed customers below.

Getprice is pleased to announce the launch of the new Getprice category bidding system. The bidding system is aimed at giving you, the retailers, even greater control around how and where your products are displayed on the site. In any month, Getprice has in excess of 1.5 million products on the site and hundreds of retailers competing for visibility, so having your listings in the premium top position can play a significant role in driving sales.

The Getprice bidding system provides you with a way to promote your products and brand by positioning it as the featured product on either a product or category level. There will only ever be one featured product on any page and this will be highlighted in bold at the top of the page. With our new system, you can now create customised offers, special bundles or “Getprice only” promotions. The better the offer, the more traffic you will get, and the better chance you have to convert to sales.

The bidding system is only open to retailers who list products with Getprice and can be found in your merchant login area. Just look for the “Bidding System” tab at the top of the page. Features include:

* Real time updates on latest bids
* Your current bid status on both a product and category level
* A view on which retailers holds the leading bid
* Ability to customise new product offers which are not in your existing product feed

The bidding system is now live and more detailed instructions are provided within the merchant login area or click here. If you have any questions about the bidding process or if you don’t have a user name and password for the login members area, then please call our sales team on Telephone 02 9299 5178 or email contact@getprice.com.au

Happy Bidding!
