Hi Dave

Im looking for a product that will allow me to input prices from 4 different websites next to each of my products to show i am cheapest.

I have over 4000 products so this needs to be done with as little work as product as i dont have the time to edit all 4000 products

Which of your products is best suited for this? Does your price comparision pro plugin come with a template that doesnt require me to input any coding?

Thanks

If you already have the 4 URLs for the different product detail pages next to your products stored somehow (in meta-data on custom posts or attributes or something on products?), then it would be possible to achieve this using the price comparison widget in the Price Comparison Pro plugin.

Alternatively, if you don’t have specific competitor URLs set up for each of your 4000 products, you can use the search comparison widget in the Price Comparison Pro plugin.

With that, you can add a shortcode to each of your pages and configure what it should search (e.g. the product name) and which websites to search against. This would involve the lowest work, but doesn’t guarantee to be showing the correct item – it’ll depend on how the third-party websites return their search results and if they have the product searched for.

Thats great thanks.

With the shortcode do i need to add this to each individual product or can i add it once to a page so it autofills to each of the 4000 products?

Thanks

It doesn’t “autofill” – it’s not loading products onto your site – but it *will* automatically search those third party sites on your WooCommerce product detail page, or any other custom product detail page if you use our shortcodes.

It keeps a cache of the search results, but most of the time it’s probably performing a fresh search of those third party sites each time, so you might want to get the proxy service listed in the plugin settings.

Hi Dave

Ive paid for and installed the plugin but having some issues setting it up.

Ive input the information for the search comparison but nothing seems to happen on the product pages. Ive tried all of the display options and the price comparison is set to do not display.
If i use a short code on each individual product then it displays but im having an issue with how it looks as the price is not readable. Link below:

Can you please tell me how to configure the plugin so all of the products have the other websites prices displayed? Ive read the support documentation and watched the video but cant figure it out.
Thanks
