6.2.12. Price Index

You are here: Control panel > Online Store > Price index

The price index module enables you to integrate your price index pages with Google Shopping, Kelkoo, Pricerunner, Miinto, and more, automatically. You can integrate your price index with other pages if they have the same price filter or create your own price index.

 



How does it work:
The price index pages offer to advertise for your products on their pages. You pay per click or per sale, depending on the agreement with the site. 

The reporting of the products and prices that you wish to be on their pages is made through a price file. The price file is in a XML format and is available through a link. This enables the price index site to update their catalogue e.g. four times daily.

Most of the price index pages also offer sales tracking. The price index sites are keeping track of the sales made from their own web site.


What should I do?
1. You need to establish an agreement with the price index site that you wish to advertise on.

2. When this is done go to: Control panel > Online store > Price index and activate the price index integrations that you wish to use. You can furthermore choose if this should be applied for all your products or for chosen products. If you choose only to share specific products, you can do this under: Online store > Product catalogue > Edit product > Price index.

3. When you have chosen the products that you wish to share, they will be visible under: Control panel > Online store > Price index
Notice that you have to create a domain or subdomain if you wish to share more language layers.

4. The price index sites that you use, will give you a customer ID and a key. You need to insert this under: Control panel > Online store > Price index, if you wish to enable sales tracking. If you do not wish to use sales tracking, then leave these fields empty.  

OBS! You need to create a domain or subdomain per language layer, in case you have several language layers.

 

Divide feeds

It is a good idea for large webshops to divide the product feeds into for example 10-20.000 products, so the priceindexes are able to load the products. This is done by adding the following to the links.

Link 1: &start=0&length=9999 (first 10.000 products)

Link 2: &start=10000&length=10000 (following max. 10.000 products)
