Analyse des prix comparatifs dynamisme – Major européenne marchés contre Amazon

Amazon is surely the first e-commerce retailer that comes into our mind when we think of price dynamism dans le monde entier.

Quand nous prenons un coup d’oeil à notre propre base de données pour toute l’Amazonie les prix des produits que nous surveillons avec Prisync (pour les États-Unis, Canada, Inde et aussi les sites européens), we see that Amazon changes prices for about 15-20% of its whole assortment on a daily basis.

Actuellement, hundreds of e-commerce companies across Europe utilise Prisync’s competitor price tracking and dynamic pricing service and they surely regard Amazon as a major competitor due this apparent nature of the retail giant. Cependant, Amazon is not necessarily the only retail giant in every European country out there, and in some of those countries, there are even more active competitors than Amazon to take into account while applying competitive strategies. – in some countries Amazon does not even impose any direct competitive force as it lacks local operations in those specific countries.

Seeing that many of our European customers actually regard major local sites other than Amazon as their biggest competitors, we decided to conduct a similar price dynamism analysis for those sites to put them in perspective vs. Amazon. We listed down the European e-commerce sites that are most commonly regarded as a competitor by our customers from the region, and tried to filter them down by making sure that they are also running a similar e-commerce business model to Amazon, C’est à dire. acts as a major marketplace in the given country.

This analysis then yielded 11 major e-commerce marketplaces from 11 different European countries, and as expected, these websites were not short of price dynamism when compared to Amazon, as they naturally act as the Amazon’s of their countries and probably follow the strategic steps of their role-model.

Before diving into the data that Prisync generated for this analysis, let us share how exactly we collected our data, to give you, our readers, the chance to evaluate the significance of our analysis yourself.

Methodology

Au départ, as stated above, we identified the websites on which, we’d apply our price dynamism analysis in comparison to Amazon.

This list (y compris 11 major e-commerce sites from the European e-commerce market) has been generated from our very own database, already covering fresh and live price points from more than 40 e-commerce markets worldwide.

We identified the following websites as the key market players that are most commonly regarded as the biggest competitor of our customers in the particular country:

Puis, we picked price history snapshots from all these webshops alongside all Amazon products that Prisync monitors (as stated above, not just European, but also US, Canada and Indian sites) for a full 7 days week. We made sure that these assortments cover all the main product categories listed on the website.

Upon applying that filter on the e-commerce sites to standardise the data to be able to apply comparative analysis later on, we calculated the total number of daily price changes for the given assortment throughout the 7 days for each of the websites, and took the average price change count per day as a percentage of the full assortment.

Par exemple, if we detected 490 price changes for a website throughout the week for 1000 produits, we’d conclude that the daily price changes were 70 pour 1000 produits, so we’d conclude that these website was changing prices on a daily basis for about the 7% of its full assortment, in comparison vs. Amazon’s 16% recorded within the same week:

The data that we looked into certainly sparked many other analysis ideas in our minds, but for this post, we sticked with the comparative price dynamism analysis, and you can be sure that it’ll be followed by several other analysis where we’d compare the days of the week in terms of price change counts, or product categories and many other parameters involved in Prisync’s massive database.

With this methodology in hand and applied on the data, let us reveal our raw data for each of the e-commerce sites and our findings for the 11 major European e-commerce sites in terms of price dynamism.

Conclusion and further study planned

The data that we see here, probably triggers more questions than it answers, and we’ll come to that point as we’ll clearly define what we have in mind as the later steps of this analysis as further study at the very end of this article.

As you can see from the data given above, the price dynamism of the e-commerce sites being analysed has a somewhat huge variance. With all the statistical limitations (more on this below) taken into account, we can see that some of the major European e-commerce marketplaces are even more dynamic in prices when compared to Amazon (which has the 16% ratio).

Here’s how the full comparison of price dynamism look when we also add Amazon into the picture:

With the exception of ozon.ru and Russia, we may say that the marketplaces which also competes with Amazon in their country (Rueducommerce.fr vs. Amazon.fr, Eprice.it vs. Amazon.it) kind of gained the same capabilities of their giant competitors when it comes to price dynamism, and they have even surpassed Amazon.

The ones that are less dynamic than Amazon can also be clustered in two batches. In the first batch, we have bol.com, otto.de, allegro.pl and wupti.dk, where 7-10% of products change prices on a daily basis. And the secondary batch contains cdon.se, prom.ua, emag.ro and komplett.no, where this ratio is less than 5% en moyenne.

Tout d'abord, let me emphasise once again that, this comparative price dynamism analysis is an attempt with a certain methodology and its statistical significance. The significance of the data can surely be improved and idealised by increasing the product count being monitored in this analysis.

Dans cet esprit, we believe, data still carries meaningful messages for e-commerce companies active in these countries and consider the listed e-commerce marketplaces as their competitors.

Comme indiqué plus haut, this piece of work can be extended in numerous ways.

Tout d'abord, throughout 2018, Nous, comme Prisync, aim to extend our coverage of websites included in this analysis (as Prisync already helps companies from more than 40 pays) and we hope to derive other findings from our dataset, like the correlation between price changes and the day of the week or the time of the day. We also hope to come up with comparative analysis vs. countries rather than just their major e-commerce marketplaces.

En bref, we regard this comparative analysis as one of the early steps into our data analysis journey which heavily and thankfully relies on the massive amount of fresh online pricing data from the global e-commerce market populated by Prisync, our automated online price tracking software.
