Setting up the Monitors page:
Here you will find the settings for the different monitors in the system.
AutoDS does much more than just scan prices and stock. Our system has many features and many monitors running at different intervals to provide your account with full 24/7 coverage. To read about all our features, check out our blog.
The Monitors Page includes:
Products Monitor - This classic feature has evolved with time to offer extensive customize options, including price and stock settings, VERO protection, break-even and profit settings, round prices to $.99, maximum shipping days protection system, and more.
Each supplier on AutoDS has its very own settings page, allowing you to have complete control of your settings across all source sites.
Orders Monitor - This monitor allows you to automatically raise the price of selling items and lower the cost of non-selling items!
The orders monitor will help you maximize your profits and always keep you at competitive market prices.
Profitability monitor - This monitor will end listings on eBay that do not sell or do not pass your settings as "profitable" listing. It will help you save money on eBay insertion fees, free up listing space in your store, and make room for new better-selling items.
