    Hi,

    I am thinking of getting this plug-in
    would it work on this theme I have not started site yet http://demo.momizat.net/multinews/
    I’ve been looking at themes for price comparison site.

    They look good but that is all they do. I would rather use a theme like above mixed with your plugin. So I can make a community around niche products. rather than anything and everything like idealo. which are what most themes are based around.

    I was thinking of a multi-site set up but the style wouldn’t match up across the site. Therefor I would prefer this plugin with the freedom to place it anywhere when needed.

    Also,
    how does scrapping other sites effect page speed?
    Is there anyway to scrape delivery price/time. i.e next day/ 3 working days.
    and stock i.e in stock/ out of stock

    and also on the first video i seen there was only 4 input fields for sites to compare. This video has 5, is there a limit to how many sites you can compare against for each product.

    I not sure of the scope of this plugin but some themes allow new merchants to join your website. i.e if there was a small independent shop who want to compete on price against the usual big stores they could join.

    sorry to be a pain in the arse but idealo charge say 20p perclick rather than affiliate commission. Once a comparison site got traffic etc this would be good. Do you know how to implement something like that.

      Hi – thank you for all your questions.

      Page load (TTFB) is unaffected, but then the widgets will pull prices either from your cache or by scraping the site you have setup. Site-dependent this takes 1 – 4 seconds per site you are scraping. They happen simultaneously.

      You can place the widgets anywhere you like. There are full instructions guiding you through this inside the plugin settings page. You can choose to display the widget at certain points, or you can remove it and instead modify your template files to place it wherever you wish.

      This plugin currently only scrapes prices and images, but in future it will allow you to scrape whatever information you desire to scrape.

      There is no limit to how many sites you can compare for each product.

      re: CPC rather than CPA – it makes no difference to the plugin – you provide 2 URLs, one to scrape the price and one to send the user to. You typically send the user through a click tracking network (affiliate link) and this does not change for CPC.
