Resources : Capturing more product details

Capturing more than just product price

Products sold online often have some additional information that is needed for a more detailed market analysis. It’s good to know that Price2Spy can capture virtually any products information as long as it’s displayed on the product page.

Also, marketplace websites have prices for multiple sellers displayed on the same product page, so if you’d like to monitor the prices from more sellers, along with the seller names, Price2Spy can make this work for you by capturing all the information in what we call 'additional fields'.

What sort of data can we capture in the additional fields?

Some of the most commonly captured product data include:

  • Shipping costs
  • Shipping time
  • Shipping details
  • Stock status
  • Seller name
  • Seller rating
  • Number of reviews
  • Average review score
  • Custom product details – such as pack sizes, prices shown in cart, shelf price etc.

Once capturing additional data is enabled in your Price2Spy account on monitored websites, this will be seen in the single product page in your account and you will be able to include this information in reports such as the Price Matrix report or Product / Competitor list, depending on your requirements.

Upon your request, a custom report including the additional data can be created based on your own needs – this way you will have a tailor-made report that would be updated and sent to you on a daily basis, saving you both time and money.

Please note that capturing additional data is available only to Premium Price2Spy users.

If you would like us to set capturing additional product fields for you, please send us a request to suppport@price2spy.com.
