Automatch – continuous automated product matching
In case your industry uses highly standardized product identifiers like EANs, MPNs, UPCs or ASINs, and if yoo need more than 1000 products matched this way, Automatch is the way to go. Automatch process is continuous and fully automated, and it can work as Automatch (performed on single website), or Multi-Automatch (for example, use idealo.de to find Automatches on many other websites)
Please check more details on our Automatch page.
Manual product matching
Over the years we have learned that time is the most valuable resource in the world of eCommerce. Hence we have noticed that many of our clients are short on time when it comes to matching and entering competitors’ products / URLs into Price2Spy.
Our manual product matching team can help in such situations. What we’d need from you is a list of products you would like added to Price2Spy, followed by a list of your competitors.
Our task will be setting up all these products in your Price2Spy account, so you get notified of any price changes detected from that moment on.
Each of your products will be checked on your competitors’ sites, and manually matched with yours. The result is a human-made, nonsense-free, high quality list of matches, whose reliability is much higher than what you get from price comparison engines (like Google Shopping and others). When performing product matching, our team will check not only product names, but also technical specs and product images – in order to ensure that a match is indeed a proper one.
When setting your account up, we will perform first 500 matching combinations for free. As for the rest of products, please contact us for a quote. (Since our product matching team is located in Eastern Europe, we are able to offer very competitive prices for this service).
One important thing to keep in mind: although our data entry team is located in Serbia, which enables us to offer lower manual labour costs, we insist on the quality of product matching we do for our clients. This part of Price2Spy team has been steadily growing over time, thus accumulating significant matching experience across various industries, across many different markets. Further, quality Assurance (QA) is an integral part of this process, performed by dedicated QA team members.
Our product matching team has the ability to perform matching in any language – so far we had tasks not only in English, but languages like German, Spanish, Arabic, Swedish, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian etc etc
As for the industries – over 9 years we have performed task for more than 25 different industries – the most recent one being rental properties (where matching is especially difficult because it involved matching of apartments / rental properties – which is by no means an easy task).
Hybrid Automatch as part of Price2Spy Enterprise package
If your products are of such nature that they cannot be effectively matched by unique identifiers (no EANs, UPCs, MPNs etc), and there is a need for manual matching as a continual process – you should consider Price2Spy Enterprise package.
Basically, the idea is to leave it to us how the products will be matched – automatically, manually, or in a hybrid way – we’ll take care of it, so the matches are there – in your Price2Spy account.
New competitor / retail website discovery
In Price2Spy we believe that you (as our client) know very well which websites we should monitor for you. However, from time to time we encounter cases where that’s simply not possible, because new websites keep popping up.
In that case, we would happy to offer you a website discovery service, no matter if we’re talking about competitor websites, or new retail websites selling the products manufactured by your brand.
The way Website discovery works is the following:
- We’d periodically check if there are new websites selling your products. The period depends on you and can be anything from 1 week to several months. You can also specify if we should check all sites worldwide, or we should focus only on specific markets
- We won’t automatically start monitoring product prices on these websites. Instead, we’d provide you with the list of new websites, and wait for your approval – which websites you consider relevant
- Only after your approval we’d start matching process on selected newly discovered websites.
- This process is applicable both for Automatch, hybrid Automatch or manual product matching
One special case of website discovery would be the discovery of new sellers on marketplaces like Amazon. It works the same way as website discovery, but this time we won’t be returning a list of newly found websites, but newly found sellers instead.
