I'd like to know if the deal I'm getting is because it's a deal, and not because the company is based in another legal jurisdiction and I'm giving up my rights under the CGA.

There is a small flag beside stores, which should indicate that. I can't guarantee it is 100% correct though.

 

If you have a particular store in mind I'm happy to help check out whether the flag is accurate for that store.

No store in particular. It's more that this site is starting to scrape from all sorts of locations, many of which are international (eg amazon.co.uk) and many of which I can't tell in advance that I might get GST added at the customs, or that I'll have no consumer guarantees act to cover my purchase. I'd like to be able to filter out these stores in a setting, or in a filter for products.

It should just be NZ registered only by default in the "Online Stores" and anything that's not NZ registered should be in the "International Sellers".

 

If it doesn't work like that then its very misleading.

I totally agree, however it seems to be more based around having an NZ website (e.g. BecexTech, who are based in either Australia or Hong Kong depending on what metric you want to use and have an Aussie flag, show up under "Online Stores"). But the given example of Amazon UK definitely only shows up under the "International Sellers" tab (which lists NZ sellers along with the international ones).

I was more thinking that we should have it under the "miscellaneous" tab, so it can be used to exclude stores that do not apply.

 

Not sure how other people use pricespy.co.nz, but I start with a filter and then work from there, if I could pre-filter out stores that I'll never by from (not in my country) it would make my experience better. See attached for an idea of how this might work.

Yea I want to exclude techworld, making their prices look the cheapest when they dont even have the cards in stock.

Slightly off-topic, but have you actually asked them about getting it? They can generally supply most of the products they list.

Nah, but heres an example:

  Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 Gaming HDMI 3xDP 8GB $392.89     $579.95  

So they are are the $393, the cheapest with it actually in store with it actually in stock is $580!

Many others techworld prices for rx580 are $100 cheaper then any stores with stock.

It does seem a bit strange... However if they've got something you're interested in at a good price I'd still recommend asking them if they can supply it.

 

But that's almost exactly a feature I've asked for before and was basically told that it won't happen.

So to get back on topic, how can we get a "nz store filter" added?

My suggestion would be to email support@pricespy.co.nz directly. There's no guarantee that it'll happen.

I have emailed, and they have taken it into consideration.

 

thank you for the email.
I will sent your request to our developers. They will look into it if that is a thing which can be done easily.
This was a great feedback, thank you!

 

:D
