Pricing platform Competera has released two updates to their system in the last month.

Users can now benefit from higher quality product matches, by blacklisting incorrectly matched URLs so they are not matched again in the future.

Prepaid users can also control and plan their Competera budget in real time, through a new billing page showing their current balance, a graph of monthly spending and the expected date of the next payment.

Finally, Competera's users can obtain competitive data from price comparison websites and synchronize data via API up to five times faster than before.

Marketplace management tool Expandly can now be accessed through Amazon's appstore in Seller Central.

The Marketplace Appstore is a one-stop-shop where small and medium-sized businesses selling on Amazon can discover quality applications to help them automate, manage and grow their business. It features applications created by Amazon and external developers and covers a range of functionalities across the selling lifecycle.

Alan Wilson, CEO of Expandly, said: "This is great news for online sellers who want an easy and affordable way to sell across multiple sales channels. Businesses that sell on Amazon can integrate their other online marketplaces, shopping cart, shipping carrier and accounting software – ultimately leading to more time, exposure, customers and, most importantly, sales".

Expandly completed a £580,000 funding round this October, led by Mercia Fund Managers.
