Please note that the scheduled times are for when the processes kicks off, not when they complete. The system will need to get fresh Pricing and Quantity of your items and your competitor's items prior to calculations and subsequent update.
The time needed to complete will vary, and depend on:
- The number of items you have
- The number of competitors you have
- The number of price rules being used
- eBay's connection speed during the process
- Your eCommerce software's connection speed (if the update method is to your software)
Please note that items on your HotList follow a separate schedule. All Hotlist items are repriced every 4 hours instead of what is on the above schedule.
