German term or phrase: Preisfindungsprozess
Another bit from my text about incentives in B2B marketplaces. "Der Grund dafür (why a certain companies charges fees for membership and transactions) ist, daß alleine schon die Teilnahme am PREISFINDUNGSPROZESS einem Unternehmen wertvolle Informationen liefern kann, auch wenn es selber keine Transaktionen durchführt."

pricing process


Explanation:
Romain offers price formation and price determination for Preisbildung and only price determination for Preisfindung. Zahn offers the same plus price establishment and pricing for Preisfindung. SAP almost always uses simply pricing for Preisfindung but once in a while price determination. There are some pretty high-powered references for the use of formation and determination:

"price formation process" - 106 Google hits

"price determination process" - 65 Google hits

"pricing process" - 1,300 Google hits

"pricing" - roughly 1,500,000 Google hits

Some of our economists may be able to tell you if there is a real difference in meaning. Most of the price determination and price formulation references were on a much higher economic plain than your context so I would agree with Kristina's use of pricing process. -
