Benefit From Easy Pricing Intelligence

Price Compare allows you to add your product prices and those of your competitors so you can track which products are cheaper or more expensive than your competitors and see how this affects your conversion rates by linking to your Google Analytics account. 

In its simplest form, you can use pricing intelligence to increase margins on products you are selling too cheaply and trim back prices on products which are over-priced in price-sensitive markets. There are many other benefits from pricing intelligence and how it aids your marketing, average order values and profit margins:

Price match to sell more products

Check whether your products are over-priced against key competitors and match where possible

Increase your margin
