What is Price Comparison Script? In this era of online shopping when more and more buyers are going online to make purchases, price comparison sites have really proved their worth. Studies show that more and more buyers use price comparison websites to compare the prices and features before making the purchase.
We are the pioneers in making price comparison script. We have been making and running price comparison websites since 2001 and have vast experience in this field. Using this experience and buyers suggestions we have adopted and adjusted our script to make it easier for the admin to build and manage a comparison website.
In price comparison websites, YOU (administrator) make money either by affiliate
commission that is by referring visitor to the merchant website or by charging
merchants subscription fees for listing their products or by CPC. Our script supports
both methods and it is the sole decision of admin on how he wants to setup his
charge policy for merchants.
After the great success of version 6, the version 7 is out. This new version is has some great features.
Script has four panels.
1. Front end
This is the area where visitors visit and browse/search for the product.
These visitors after searching or deciding for a product are redirected to merchant website where actual purchase for that product takes place.
2. Merchant area (online store area)
This is the area where merchants login and manage their account. Some of the features of merchant area are to manage company profile, manage Tax amount, manage data feeds, manage prices for their products, view reports, pay for the subscription charges or per click charges and manage prices for the products.
If admin give merchants’ privileges, merchants can also add new products
into the database.
BUT it is recommended that you do not give such privileges to merchants. Script supports both.
3. Administrator area (that is YOU)
This is the most important area. This is the area where you manage categories, products, merchants, prices and everything related to the website.
Here you can also setup crawlers to crawl websites to get products and prices. You can also edit language files so that the site language is changed language other than English.
4. Affiliate area
In this area your affiliates login. There they can see the commissions they have earned by sending visitors/buyers to your website and can also see their payment history, can update how they want to be paid.
In this the area they can also download the CSV or XML datafeeds of your website products so that they can promote them and redirect traffic to your website.
It is just like an affiliate program of shopzilla, yahoo shopping, shopping.com (in business model) where you are sending traffic to them (a price comparison website) which inturn sends traffic to the merchant (online store) website for actual sale.
4. Members/Visitors area
In this area your site visitors can setup the price alerts, wishlists, post comments, reviews, discussions. If you have cashback addon installed then they can also earn the cashback on the purchases they have made.
