Coming Early 2019: Pricefox - the app that lets you keep track of competitor prices

29 November 2018Ecommerce Pricefox App

As a store owner, you know how time-consuming it can be to visit your competitor's website, search for a particular product, record the price somewhere, and then have to repeat the process for every other site.

Wouldn't it be amazing if there was an app out there that did all this for you?

Introducing Pricefox

Pricefox does exactly this. It performs searches on your competitor's websites and records every price it finds enabling you to keep track of changes.

Initially, this was a one-off project for my client, Darren, who wanted to keep track of competitor's for his own ecommerce business. We built a basic working version to start with, but then we thought this would be extremely useful to other ecommerce store owners, and consequently, Pricefox was born.

What makes Pricefox useful?

There's plenty of price comparison APIs available out there, but what makes Pricefox truly beneficial is:

  1. It returns products that closely match what you searched.
  2. Unlike some APIs, it returns prices at the time of the search and not prices fetched days or weeks ago.
  3. It saves all the search results, so you have a record.

So, when is it available?

Pricefox has been under active development for the last couple of months and will be ready for launch early 2019.
