The script generated will be based on parameters you enable by checking the corresponding box next to any of the options in the following sections:
- Are you repricing only your Books? Only CD's? Perhaps you only want your FBA items repriced? Make your selection in the drop down menus and check the corresponding box to tell Soloist what inventory to look at.
- Tell Soloist any particulars to leave off the list of items it's allowed to Reprice by excluding items based on a variety of parameters including:
