What to do at PriceSpy?
How often is the information updated?
Price information is updated several times a day and by placing your mouse pointer over a specific price, the date and time for the last update will be shown.
How do we sort the price listings?
Price listings are sorted according to the following criteria:
- Price excluding shipping
- Price including shipping
- Stock status
- Store rating
- Number of store ratings
- Number of products in which the store has the lowest price
- Featured store, i.e. a store displaying its logo and with direct links to their products
Why not sort on price with shipping included?
Some stores will calculate shipping cost per product, some per order, while others base it on weight or size. Since it is difficult to compare these methods of calculation in a fair way we have chosen to list the prices according to above mentioned criteria and order. Visitors can however choose to sort price lists in another way, just by clicking the column header.
How is shipping cost calculated?
We have chosen to list the cheapest option valid for delivery throughout the country, and where normal payments such as cash on delivery or by card can be used. If there are cheaper alternatives, e.g. by choosing a payment schedule, a featured store can indicate this in its retailer message. A store can never state that shipping is free purely on the ground that goods can be collected at a designated location.
Stock statusStock status can reflect the store's own stock or stock with suppliers / distributors.
We show store stock status as follows:
in stock, delivered within 6 working days
on the way, or non-stock item
out of stock
unknown stock status
Place your mouse pointer over the icon for more information on stock status, such as estimated delivery time. If you choose to sort the list by stock status, it will be arranged in the same order as the stock status symbols above.
