Main Price2Spy features
The features currently existing in Price2Spy have been added gradually over time and the growing list of features actually mirrors the growth of the Price2Spy tool itself. The features listed below either come in a form of reports or capabilities in general and have been built as a result of our ever-growing working experience with our clients – some of them were based on our own ideas (especially in early phases), but a great majority of them actually come from our clients – they are in fact the proof of our growth and show that we tend to grow together with our clients.

- Power and simplicity – Although technically a very powerful tool, Price2Spy was made very simple and intuitive for end-users (no technical knowledge required whatsoever)
- Quick start – You can get Price2Spy to monitor your first competitor in less than 10 minutes.
- An unlimited number of competitors/sites, not monitor – Price2Spy can handle any number of sites to be monitored. Our price plans do not depend on the number of competitors or products, but on the number of URLs, you want to be monitored.
- 4 ways to set up the monitoring (product matching):
- Do it yourself, product by product (suitable for smaller stores). Price2Spy will try to help with its own Matching Suggestions.
- Product sheet upload (any number of products)
- Automatch – automated site crawl/product search (works great if you need thousands of products that have something uniquely matchable)
- Manual product matching/data entry performed by our team – humans doing product matching across your competitor sites
- Advanced price detection – Price2Spy can monitor even stores that do not show the price before you click the product, or add it to the shopping cart. More than that – we can handle even sites which show prices in images (in order to disable automated data monitoring tools)
- Bot-aware Websites – One of Price2Spy’s key strengths is the distributed technology we use to monitor Websites. This technology enables us to stay undetected by most of the sites we monitor. Even when we do get detected, we can go one step further (stealth price monitoring)
- MAP features – Price2Spy can alert you if a MAP (minimum advertised price) is violated. Especially useful for manufacturers who want to monitor their resellers
- Pricing Opportunities – after defining your own pricing strategy, Price2Spy will be able to advise potential pricing adjustments that could lead to an increase in turnover or profit.
- Pricing Dashboard – create your own tailor-made reports in just a few clicks
- No server, no software to maintain – Price2Spy is an online service, meaning that we do all the maintenance. All you need to do is to tell Price2Spy which Products to monitor, on which competitors’ websites. The rest is on us.
- Built by eCommerce professionals – Price2Spy was built by a company with a strong eCommerce background (we own 9 online stores ourselves). We know how important it is to keep an eye on competitors’ pricing!
- Email alerts – Be the first to know that the price has changed! Price2Spy will send you an email as soon as it detects that a price (or item availability) has changed.
- Powerful reporting mechanism – our in-depth reports will show you market movements – whether your competitors are changing the prices up or down.
- Custom automated reports in your mailbox – all you should do is set up your custom report and schedule it. From that day on, you’ll receive it in your mailbox, each and every day.
- Historical price charts – for each product you will be able to see a chart representing price movements over time – so you can easily distinguish which sites are leading the way, and which sites are adjusting their prices accordingly.
- Capturing additional product information – data like shipping costs, delivery details, cashback, guarantee period can also be captured by Price2Spy
- Try before you buy – we offer a 30 day trial period. No credit card is needed.
- No one will know – Price2Spy uses a whole network of geographically distributed servers, which makes the price check sources randomized and practically impossible to detect.
- Access Price2Spy data in your own application/database – with help of Price2Spy API, you’ll be able to access/ manage all the pricing data without even logging into your Price2Spy account.
- Mobile-friendly – you can easily access your Price2Spy account from your mobile device. Or simply use the Price2Spy Android app or the iOS app.
