Amazon analytics tool ManageByStats has introduced new tiered pricing plans for its phone and email "appends" services.

ManageByStats' Appends service finds real emails and phone numbers for an Amazon seller's customers and inserts them into the customer records.

"This time of year we see a surge in subscription for our appends services," says CEO of ManageByStats, Philip Jepsen. "Our subscription plans provide options for users at various levels. The plans are designed to accommodate Amazon sellers selling on Amazon at any volume."

The tiered plans include price reductions at certain volumes, and those reductions are also applied if a user chooses to do a full append. A full append is run against all customers, and finds real emails and/or phone numbers for the entire customer database. Subscription plans run daily throughout each month, getting emails and/or phone numbers for new customers. ManageByStats customers can choose to subscribe for either email appends, phone appends, or both.

"We've been offering email appends for several years," says Mr. Jepsen. "Last year, when Amazon stopped providing customer phone numbers, we added the option for phone appends. Since then our success rate in finding phone numbers has steadily improved."

Amazon PPC ads management tool Ignite has released a new feature which gives sellers the ability to control when ads run and for how long.

Ad Scheduling is a Seller Labs exclusive feature not found in Amazon's Seller Central or any other third-party Sponsored Products Ads software. The feature is currently in beta and gives sellers control over the timing of their Sponsored Products ad campaigns.

Ad Scheduling can set ads to run for specific hours and days with no manual pausing or resuming. The feature can be used to automatically turn off ads during periods when conversion rates are low, to test ads at different times of the day, or to run ads only in the evening when competitors have exhausted their budgets, for example.
