The airlines were the first to adopt a dynamic price system so the prices of tickets suffered considerable fluctuations according to the number of places available and to the prices applied by competing companies. Soon the hotels too adopted this policy. Today, even those who sell on the internet use this system. The aim is to keep the price of a product lower than the one offered by the competitors, even just a penny: in this way, in fact, if the results of the research of a product are sorted by price, the offer will be displayed in the head.
E-commerce competition is considerably large and for this reason there is a constant change of prices. According to some statistics, the products displayed first in the search results are bought 95% of the time in which they appear; this is why the shops in the Amazon marketplace change the price of their products every few minutes, in order to remain in the top positions of the charts.
The dynamic price is particularly applied to consumer electronics, clothing, accessories and household goods; prices are changed according to those of competitors, to the cost of shipping and sales. The consequence of this mechanism is the volatility of prices and consumers remains victim or take advantage of it.
In order to take advantage of this mechanism of price swings you can use at least two tools available free on the web.
The first one is a website whose name si adquisitio achievable from the link adquisitio.com; copying the link of the product you want to buy from Amazon and pasting it into the upper part of this website, you can see what has been the trend in price in recent months, day by day, see the maximum and minimum recorded, and see if is the right time to buy or is more convenient to wait.
