Who are SellerEngine?
SellerEngine has been providing software and services to Amazon sellers since 2002 when we offered the first automated repricing and inventory management tool on the market. Since then, we’ve expanded our suite of products and services to become a one-stop shop for Amazon sellers looking to begin or expand their business. We help with sourcing, product research, inventory management, automated repricing, international customer service, listing reinstatement, Amazon account suspensions and appeal process, and much more. Visit us online to find out how we can help you take your Amazon business to the next level.
You have three products – what can they do for me?
At SellerEngine, we’re proud of the fact that Profit Bandit has long been the number 1 dedicated mobile scouting app for Amazon product research and retail arbitrage. We’ve consistently received a relatively impressive number of downloads and we’re pleased to have helped Amazon Sellers of all sizes and experience levels reach new levels of success with their businesses.
New features include restricted item notification, slow moving AISNs and restricted condition notification.
Profit Bandit is $9.99 a month.
You can use SellerEngine Plus for inventory management, FBA shipments, create labels, product research and MFN order management as well as repricing.
WIth SellerEngine Plus, you can easily create new listings, delete, or update them in bulk (or, you can use Profit Bandit, which is included with SellerEngine Plus or Sellery).
Create and manage FBA shipments with selected items and add new FBA listings in bulk. Import lists of EANs, UPCs, ISBNs, or ASINs to evaluate sales rank, competition, and other data to make decisions on what is worth selling. Also, you can use Profit Bandit to import Buy Lists into the software for further research and listing.
SellerEngine Plus is $49.95 a month.
Our flagship product. Of all the Amazon repricers on the market today, Sellery is the first one designed to ensure that you never sell at a loss. The process involves using an accurate minimum price to help make smarter decisions; a feature unique to Sellery.
You may not know that Smart Lists are a power feature in Sellery that they allow you to filter your Inventory based on various criteria. What makes the Smart List feature so special is its ability to utilize flexible rules that allow for customized pricing strategies. For example, this would allow you to create customized strategies that can serve underserved inventory. This is what makes Sellery unique – premade algorithms or simple rule in other repricers have a hard time accommodating for this.
Sellery’s power feature is the real time repricing component that enables the software to update prices dynamically when market conditions change.
Sellery also lets you add custom fields. While many of the fields from Amazon are standard, your business has fields that are specific to your business needs. Sellery lets you add those.
You can also apply special buy box cases to your strategy – such as against amazon, a specific MFN/FBA strategy, new or used sellers, etc. The combinations are endless.
Sellery starts at $100 a month.
Why would a retailer use SellerEngine instead of your competitors?
SellerEngine got its start selling on Amazon, and then used their experience to help other Amazon sellers become successful. We can help you with everything related to your Amazon business – from setting up your first listing pages, to researching possible products to sell; repricing your inventory in real time, getting you ungated in specific categories, reinstatement, monitoring your account for possible issues, or managing your account for you in the local language.

Our team works with the seller or complete the appeal, and typically includes taking over customer support for a set period of time to improve account metrics, discussing business practices with the seller (business practices, orders, sourcing, inventory, etc). We explain actions you’ll need to take before sending the appeal, and, finally, write the appeal letter with the structure, focus and style that Amazon expects.
We can educate you in various Amazon issues. What ever topic you feel you would like to know more about, we can help you learn.

This service will help a seller lift a category/brand restriction. The Services team will review the seller’s invoices/certificates, assess any previous attempts to lift the restriction, explain what was incorrect (if applicable) and show option on how to get ungated in the future.

I’m interested in your international services can you tell us more?
SellerEngine can help you expand to any of the following venues: US; Canada; UK; France; Germany; Italy; Spain; and Japan.
International expansion can be a challenging task. Given our expertise, you can rest assured that we can assist you with:
- Opening an Amazon account on the venue of your choice;
- Explaining the Amazon fees on the new marketplace;
- Explaining local tax implications and registration processes;
- Helping you build VAT into your pricing;

And I understand you can also assist with my Amazon business account health?
As detailed above in the description of our Services (all of them, with the exception of Ungating and International Expansion), a significant part of our assistance is to keep your account safe from harm.
Account health can be virtually influenced by anything: restricted listings, stock products not matching Amazon listings, not responding to customers on time, not shipping items on time, not addressing returns immediately or not dealing promptly with any issues that may arise.
All of these are usually reflected in any of the following: problematic performance parameters (response time, late shipment rate, customer return dissatisfaction, negative feedback and A-to-Z claims which are directly computed under your ODR metric), notifications on faulty and restricted listings or underperforming performance metrics, and, ultimately, account suspension.
Besides, helping with dealing regularly with your business activity so that you can alleviate and prevent any of the issues listed above, we can offer advice on how to read, interpret and use your business reports, how to improve your listings and make them more visible, how to get in and sell new categories and virtually anything that can make your Amazon business grow and become more prosperous.
