Pricematik Review – Why I’m Thinking of Converting?

PriceMatik vs Profit Scraper

If you’re a returning reader to the blog, you’ll know that I’ve spent a considerable amount of time building up an Amazon to eBay drop shipping business.  If you’re new to the blog you may want to read my full introduction to Amazon to eBay drop shipping here.  I currently have over 2,500 items currently advertised on eBay, which has only been possible through automation and in particular Profit Scraper.  As some of you may be aware, the waiting list is growing and as such I’ve been inundated with questions about other platforms offering similar functionality.  Read on to find more about Pricematik.

Update 6/1/18:  Profit Scraper have recently reopened their membership – sign up to a free 7 day trial using this link.

From my experience the only other real competitor in the market is Pricematik.  I signed up to a free trail using this link to test the software and provide an overview of my experience below.  You can compare the Pricematik software to Profit Scraper by signing up to the free 7 day trial using this link.

Price

So let’s start by comparing the cost of the two platforms:

ListingsProfit ScraperPricematik
500$67N/A
1,000$97$100
2,500$167NA
3,000NA$160
5,000$297$220
10,000$497$370
20,000NA$520

It is clear from the above that Pricematik is considerably cheaper than Profit Scraper once you get to about 5,000 items.  Whilst not set out above Pricematik also offers smaller incremental increases in listing between subscription categories.  This allows you to scale the business slightly slower.  A positive if you’re new to Amazon to eBay Arbitrage.

Finding Opportunities

Similar to Profit Scraper, Pricematik offers the ability to scrape other eBay sellers. Whilst this is helpful to get started initially, where considerable profit is made is when you identify an item with little or no competition.

Unlike Profit Scraper, Pricematik provides a function to upload individual products.  A real plus in my eyes!

Listing to eBay

Pricematik offers clean straight forward software which allows you to upload products to eBay by the click of a mouse.  Once on eBay the software automatically monitors pricing and inventory (exactly the same as Profit Scraper).

Automatic ordering

As with Profit Scraper, you’re able to run automatic ordering services with Pricematik.  To enable this function you’ll need to buy credits at $0.40 per credit.   This is again marginally cheaper than Profit Scraper.  However depending on how much time you have I’d recommend you do this part yourself.  See my full Amazon to eBay Arbitrage article here for the reason why.

Customer Service

As always, it’s important that the software is supported by strong customer service.  Whilst the product was easy to set up, I questioned a couple of things (to test their responsiveness) and was surprised with the speedy replies from Nick (the founder) in both instances.

Pricematik Summary:

Whilst having been a strong advocate of Profit Scraper over the last 6 months (see my review here), the free trail at Pricematik has opened my eyes to a very similar product offering for a reduced price.  I would strongly recommend considering Pricematik if you are unable to sign up to Profit Scraper (sign up to the Profit Scraper 7 Day Free Trial Here) or alternative are planning on listing more than 2,500 items going forwards.   In fact I’m currently toying with the idea of switching my business across (I’ll let you know what I decide in due course).  Use this link to sign up for a free trail with Pricematik now.

    Thanks for the info. I have got to say being new to dropshipping and only using Pricematik it has not been a great experience so far. I have 3000 listings live at the moment. The scraper breaks constantly, if the item goes out of stock it doesn’t update my listings in time, I currently have half of my listings in a “unknown” state on Pricematik which means they do not get updated at all so if the price or stock runs out me listing still sells. One last thing to report is a few weeks a go Pricematik decided to hike my prices without me noticing for a whole day which resulted in me making 0 money that day when I was usually making 1-200 profit per day. Recently there response to emails has become non existent leaving me wondering what to do? I want to grow but I have no trust any more with this software it constantly lets me down.
