Dynamic Pricing

Using dynamic pricing, you can set your discounts dynamically based on five criteria.

What is dynamic pricing?

Every client and agency can reap the benefits of dynamic pricing, which applies a discount for each booking depending on the following five criteria: seasonality, sales volume, placement, timing, and flexibility. In addition to dynamic discounts, clients and agencies continue to receive a contract discount depending on gross annual turnover. This discount is calculated using a standard scale for print discounts. 

How do I use dynamic pricing?

Dynamic pricing requires use of the print Marketplace, which includes an automated calculation function. The dynamic pricing discount breaks down as follows:

Welcome to Dynamic Pricing

During the launch phase, all clients receive a welcome discount of 4%.

Criterion 1: Seasonality

A seasonality discount of 0% to 4% is applied to all issues from the Ringier and Ringier Axel Springer Switzerland portfolio. The discounts for the individual issues are clearly displayed, can be referred to in the PDF at any time, and are fixed for the duration of one fiscal year. The maximum discount for this criterion is 4%. 

Criterion 2: Sales volume

The customer’s print sales volume in our portfolio over the last 12 months is compared to the average sales for the previous 2 x 12 months. The maximum discount for this criterion is 4%.

2.5% to < 5.0% increase in sales2.0%
5.0% to < 7.5% increase in sales3.0%
7.5% or more increase in sales4.0%

Criterion 3: Placement

Each newspaper and magazine offers different placement options. The discount for each placement is calculated based on its attractiveness, demand and issue. This means that different discounts can be applied to the same placement in different issues. The maximum discount for this criterion is 4%.

Criterion 4: Timing

Each issue of a title has a specific target volume. Depending on how much of this volume a title reaches at the time of booking, the discount will range between 0% and 6%.

Criterion 5: Flexibility

For non-cancellable fixed bookings, an additional 2% discount, which is deducted from the gross price in advance, is applied. This type of booking cannot be cancelled even before the ad closing date. In some cases (no print material, etc.), it is possible to postpone until the next issue; for daily newspapers, a maximum of one week is allowed. The maximum discount for this criterion is 2%.

Final Discount

The following final discount scale applies for all customers who are using dynamic pricing.
