At the beginning of 2016, we decided to control retail prices in the Internet space. We found guys who offered to automate this process. We were satisfied with the trial result and at the moment we are monitoring most of the IMs, including stores at PROM.
However, I note that knowing about the situation on the market and having a controlled situation are not the same thing.
The control system REALLY makes it easier to find dumping shops, but it does not fix prices.
To really maintain the MAP/ MSRP, the daily work of a manager is necessary, who will ring up stores with an underestimated (or overpriced) price.
When our company faced the need to monitor the distribution of Varta products in online stores, we turned to Price Control. More than 80 online stores were included in the monitoring, most of which provided outdated or frankly irrelevant information on their pages. To solve this problem, we were offered the services of regular monitoring of online stores and the hotline aggregator, including through individual contact with each of the stores.
During the period of our cooperation, the number of online stores displaying irrelevant or incorrect information has decreased tenfold. Daily monitoring is presented in the form of convenient informative reports, and the control department promptly responds to each new seller who is included in the monitoring.
We thank Price Control for its productive and professional work and for solving our problems. We recommend them to every company that wants to put things in order in its segment of the Internet market.
We started working with the project in September 2015. At that time, non-compliance with the recommended selling price by online stores had already become a pressing issue and the proposal that came from the project was accepted without discussion - we must try!
For the test period, we connected 10 online stores for control, which included both large and small sites. During testing, the project showed itself from the best side. We not only obtained an evidence base for explicit dampeners, but also identified tricksters who started dumping only on weekends or at night, and especially “advanced” dampeners revealed the IP addresses of computers from which monitoring was carried out and personally showed the “correct” prices for them.
The service dealt with all the problems that arose quickly, thanks to the guys for their responsive work and fine-tuning the monitoring to our requests.
Now we have switched to a package of 20 stores and 1000 Monitoring items. All our customers, both online stores and wholesalers, noted a significant improvement in the market environment. The seller's profit from the sale of our product has increased, which made our product more interesting against the background of competitors.
The next stage is the fight against violators of online stores, on which we have no direct influence. But for this task, the guys already have a solution - legal support.
Back in 2016, we began cooperation with the project team. More than a year used only the monitoring service. We regularly received reports and tried on our own to influence violators of retail recommended prices. There was an effect, but it took a very long time to influence the violators. Work on influencing violators through our dealers did not give a real result. Our employees did not have enough time to work with online stores. There were still violations.
By the end of 2017, they actually planned to abandon the service. In November 2017, we decided to use the “Antidumping” service. Already in the first month of work, dumping fell several times. By outsourcing the work of influencing violators, we freed up the working time of our employees and got a certain result thanks to the perseverance of the Antidumping project team.
After six months of cooperation, less than 5% of the total number of our clients work on the Internet at low prices. Significantly reduced calls to the marketing and sales department from our partners about the violation of retail prices by others.
In general, we are satisfied with the result. We are also pleased that the project management is ready for quick and flexible changes for its regular customers.
Our representative office does not sell products. Importers work, and we help them build a profitable business.
For a long time, the problems of pricing on the Internet did not concern us directly. With the advent of our products in large online stores, the issue of dumping has become acute.
There were no free "hands" at the representative office, we decided to find them on the side. At the beginning of 2017, they gave the Pricecontrol project one store to work on. They completely removed our trademarks from it. By the end of 2017, 40 stores were put into operation. In five months, the guys completely leveled the situation in them.
Today we have entered a new stage of cooperation. Pricecontrol employees themselves find violators of our pricing policy and automatically include them in the work. Now the situation with dumping in the Internet channel is controlled and is constantly improving. Of the special advantages of the project, I can note that we pay only for the result achieved.
Accent Electronic is the main national provider of solutions in the field of IT, telecommunications, construction and energy in the Republic of Moldova.
Working since 1991, we have become the largest distributor in Moldova and in the region, uniting about 70 world brands. The volume of price analytical information on numerous commodity items has grown so much that it required the allocation of a separate structural unit, as well as partial automation of the process of collecting price information, both for retail and wholesale prices.
Thanks to Price Control, we managed to solve not only the task of daily collecting information on hundreds of items from dozens of online stores, with absolute accuracy and the practical absence of significant errors, but also to fully automate many processes for collecting price and configuration information on key commodity items.
The management of the Price Control company met us halfway and agreed to carry out the difficult work of developing unique tools that we successfully use to compete in the current crisis.
Cooperation with Price Control helps to increase the efficiency of the brand management team by providing timely price information and ensuring constant monitoring of the market.
In July 2019, our company came to the decision that it is necessary to control the recommended retail price (MAP/ MSRP) for our exclusive products - ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles of European brands.
To do this, we analyzed the market of proposals for monitoring prices on the Internet in Russia. A feature of our task was that we have a relatively small assortment to control up to 700 SKUs with a large number of dealers (more than 300).
The most interesting conditions were offered by PriceControl, while they promised to create a monitoring system exclusively for our needs. There were some difficulties in the setup process, this was due to the different structure of dealer online stores, but the guys coped with the difficulties that arose, and in the future, if problems arose, they always quickly solved them. After some time, we discovered that dealers do not dump on websites, but do it in Yandex.Market. Therefore, together with Price Control, we set up a price monitoring system in the Market, which made it possible to achieve 100% compliance with the MAP/ MSRP for our products throughout the Russian market from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad.
We are especially grateful for the automated system for notifying violators about dumping, which significantly frees managers from the routine work of notifying dealers about violations.
The Price Controls service monitors all marketplaces that our customers actually order. For Ukraine, we have long written the Prom parser, the Hotline price parser, and the ROZETKA parser.
Many sites try to protect themselves from automatic parsing prices. We constantly have to bypass these protections and restore the collection of information. Many years of experience in parsing prices on the Internet helps us to cope with this task.
The frequency of price analysis rather depends not on the marketplace itself, but on the product category and competition in it on this site.
It is not difficult for us to monitor prices, both once a day and once an hour. Usually, after a week of monitoring, each of our clients understands the level of price competition and sets up an optimal schedule for monitoring competitors’ prices.
Each marketplace provides any potential buyer with full information about the pricing of each of the merchants. In fact, when trading similar products, they have no other way to stand out other than lower prices.
Without regular monitoring of prices and strict control over compliance with the RRP and MRP on the part of the manufacturer or importer, prices very quickly slide into dumping.
Each marketplace tries to attract potential buyers with the most attractive prices of its merchants. They encourage both price wars of their sellers and closely monitor prices on other sites.
They parse their competitors themselves, provide this information to merchants, and require them to lower prices to the level of other marketplaces or even lower. If ROZETKA price monitoring showed dumping, there is no doubt that Hotline price monitoring will also show deviations from the MAP.

Today, the transition of consumers to online shopping is accelerating. They are interested in fast search, timely delivery and minimum price. All these criteria are met by modern marketplaces.
On the example of Amazon, we see how they are developing rapidly and gradually, but surely, take sales from everyone else. It is becoming increasingly difficult for conventional online stores to compete for customers with these monsters. To survive, they place their offers on them.
Marketplaces are growing and gradually taking over the sales of an increasing number of brands. It is difficult for sellers of similar products on marketplaces to stand out from competing sites. Often they resort to direct or veiled (promotions, discounts, free shipping ...) dumping. This quickly becomes known to competitors. The price "collapses" throughout the market.
For online stores, manufacturers and importers, the issue of monitoring and controlling prices in the market has always been acute.
Today, without monitoring the prices of marketplaces, it is impossible to understand which of the partners or competitors does not comply with the established rules.
Our Marketplace Price Monitoring service allows you to find your products on all major sites. In your personal account or according to regular reports, you can control the price and its dynamics. You will understand which of the partners or competitors does not comply with the established trading conditions. You can protect your trademark on your own or with our help.
