How to Pause Your Listings at a Specific Time

Many may be more familiar with the idea of "spiking" your price to a higher amount overnight. The Pause Repricing Action can do that and more.

Let's create a Workflow that will increase our prices to the current Buy Box price + 30% for 45 minutes at midnight our local time.

*Aura uses the UTC timezone as that is what Amazon currently adheres to. You will need to convert your local time into UTC using the hyperlinked tool.

For this Workflow, we'll need to start with the A Time of Day Occurs Trigger.

Next, we need to tell Aura if we want this Workflow to repeat, and on which days of the week, or if we only want it to run on a specific calendar day and time.

*You can use a Filter Block to only adjust specific listings if you do not want the Actions to trigger on your entire inventory.

For our example, we're going to have this Workflow repeat every single day at midnight EST.

First, convert midnight (I'm using the EST timezone) to UTC, which is 4:00 AM UTC, and enter that into the Time of day field and click Continue.

Next, we'll need to add our Pause Repricing Action, and add our settings and click Add Action...

The above settings will take our prices to the Buy Box + 30% for 45 minutes and then resume repricing once the pause duration is complete.

Assuming we do not want to do anything else, we can click Continue to review our set Actions, name our new Workflow, and enable it 🤓

Moving forward, Aura will adjust all of my prices at midnight EST and hold them for 45 minutes.
