In the next lines, we will expose the strategies where you can choose one or even combine them so that your store sells more on Mercado Livre.

Discounts on the Mercado Libre

One of the ways to sell more for sure is by lowering the price.

But do we always need to give up our margin to be able to sell in large quantities?

Looking from the perspective of catalog products, the one with the best price will be the one that will win the “Buy Box”, making your store sell more at Mercado Livre.

Likewise, when Mercado Livre suggests a discount for your product so that there are sales, the ideal is to accept it.

After all, the marketplace itself helps the seller with extra value so that the ads have the best prices and gain greater prominence as a result.

Sometimes they even use your product ad in paid Google Shopping campaigns and on social networks to attract more traffic to Mercado Livre.

Therefore, accepting and applying discounts to your ads makes you stand out more.

At the same time, your ad is among the first results at the top of the search page and still earns a discount badge to stand out from other advertisers.

How does the shared discount on Mercado Livre work?

If you opt for shared discount campaigns, it is very easy to set up.

Just access within the Ads section, the Promotions Center tab.

There you will see your ads eligible to participate in promotions.

It is worth mentioning that most of your catalog ads on Mercado Livre are eligible to carry out promotions with shared discounts.

So, if you really want to participate, you just have to accept the promotion, be it 5% OFF, 10% OFF, among others, and click on the blue “Participate” button.

However, do not forget to check the duration of the promotion, final price and how much will be paid by Mercado Livre.
