  • There is no limit to the number of competitor sites we can monitor for you.

It’s flexible

  • You can track prices from different markets, in different currencies; you can choose to keep the original currency or to apply the exchange rate;
  • Unlike most other price monitoring solutions, Price2Spy does not limit the number of competitors you can monitor. We charge you per total number of product URLs you’re monitoring – be it just 2, 22, or 122 competitors;

Why Price2Spy?


  • Power and simplicity – Although technically a very powerful tool, Price2Spy has been 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. Or, if you are too busy to do it yourself, we can set it up for you (free of charge) – just send us a list of up to 25 products, accompanied by your competitors’ Websites. Once we do it, you will start receiving alert emails whenever a price change is detected.
  • An unlimited number of competitors/sites to 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).
    • 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 sites we monitor. Even when we do get detected, we can go one step further (stealth price monitoring)
