Parsing the prices of online stores is a rather complicated process. It requires a good knowledge of the correct configuration of the price parser to collect information from the websites of stores of various configurations. An equally crucial moment is the matching of the client's products to the products of competitors. Even more problems can arise when bypassing the protection of sites from automatic price collection.
The price parser in online stores for high-quality collection of information must have a number of mandatory components. It must have settings for any type of site, it must not create a load on the store server, it must be able to collect millions of pieces of information per day.

At the beginning of 2016, we decided to control retail prices in the Internet space. We found guys who offered to automate this process. We were satisfied with the trial result and at the moment we are monitoring most of the IMs, including stores at PROM.
However, I note that knowing about the situation on the market and having a controlled situation are not the same thing.
The control system REALLY makes it easier to find dumping shops, but it does not fix prices.
To really maintain the MAP/ MSRP, the daily work of a manager is necessary, who will ring up stores with an underestimated (or overpriced) price.
When our company faced the need to monitor the distribution of Varta products in online stores, we turned to Price Control. More than 80 online stores were included in the monitoring, most of which provided outdated or frankly irrelevant information on their pages. To solve this problem, we were offered the services of regular monitoring of online stores and the hotline aggregator, including through individual contact with each of the stores.
During the period of our cooperation, the number of online stores displaying irrelevant or incorrect information has decreased tenfold. Daily monitoring is presented in the form of convenient informative reports, and the control department promptly responds to each new seller who is included in the monitoring.
We thank Price Control for its productive and professional work and for solving our problems. We recommend them to every company that wants to put things in order in its segment of the Internet market.
We started working with the project in September 2015. At that time, non-compliance with the recommended selling price by online stores had already become a pressing issue and the proposal that came from the project was accepted without discussion - we must try!
For the test period, we connected 10 online stores for control, which included both large and small sites. During testing, the project showed itself from the best side. We not only obtained an evidence base for explicit dampeners, but also identified tricksters who started dumping only on weekends or at night, and especially “advanced” dampeners revealed the IP addresses of computers from which monitoring was carried out and personally showed the “correct” prices for them.
The service dealt with all the problems that arose quickly, thanks to the guys for their responsive work and fine-tuning the monitoring to our requests.
Now we have switched to a package of 20 stores and 1000 Monitoring items. All our customers, both online stores and wholesalers, noted a significant improvement in the market environment. The seller's profit from the sale of our product has increased, which made our product more interesting against the background of competitors.
The next stage is the fight against violators of online stores, on which we have no direct influence. But for this task, the guys already have a solution - legal support.
Back in 2016, we began cooperation with the project team. More than a year used only the monitoring service. We regularly received reports and tried on our own to influence violators of retail recommended prices. There was an effect, but it took a very long time to influence the violators. Work on influencing violators through our dealers did not give a real result. Our employees did not have enough time to work with online stores. There were still violations.
By the end of 2017, they actually planned to abandon the service. In November 2017, we decided to use the “Antidumping” service. Already in the first month of work, dumping fell several times. By outsourcing the work of influencing violators, we freed up the working time of our employees and got a certain result thanks to the perseverance of the Antidumping project team.
After six months of cooperation, less than 5% of the total number of our clients work on the Internet at low prices. Significantly reduced calls to the marketing and sales department from our partners about the violation of retail prices by others.
In general, we are satisfied with the result. We are also pleased that the project management is ready for quick and flexible changes for its regular customers.
Our representative office does not sell products. Importers work, and we help them build a profitable business.
For a long time, the problems of pricing on the Internet did not concern us directly. With the advent of our products in large online stores, the issue of dumping has become acute.
There were no free "hands" at the representative office, we decided to find them on the side. At the beginning of 2017, they gave the Pricecontrol project one store to work on. They completely removed our trademarks from it. By the end of 2017, 40 stores were put into operation. In five months, the guys completely leveled the situation in them.
Today we have entered a new stage of cooperation. Pricecontrol employees themselves find violators of our pricing policy and automatically include them in the work. Now the situation with dumping in the Internet channel is controlled and is constantly improving. Of the special advantages of the project, I can note that we pay only for the result achieved.
Accent Electronic is the main national provider of solutions in the field of IT, telecommunications, construction and energy in the Republic of Moldova.
Working since 1991, we have become the largest distributor in Moldova and in the region, uniting about 70 world brands. The volume of price analytical information on numerous commodity items has grown so much that it required the allocation of a separate structural unit, as well as partial automation of the process of collecting price information, both for retail and wholesale prices.
Thanks to Price Control, we managed to solve not only the task of daily collecting information on hundreds of items from dozens of online stores, with absolute accuracy and the practical absence of significant errors, but also to fully automate many processes for collecting price and configuration information on key commodity items.
The management of the Price Control company met us halfway and agreed to carry out the difficult work of developing unique tools that we successfully use to compete in the current crisis.
Cooperation with Price Control helps to increase the efficiency of the brand management team by providing timely price information and ensuring constant monitoring of the market.
In July 2019, our company came to the decision that it is necessary to control the recommended retail price (MAP/ MSRP) for our exclusive products - ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles of European brands.
To do this, we analyzed the market of proposals for monitoring prices on the Internet in Russia. A feature of our task was that we have a relatively small assortment to control up to 700 SKUs with a large number of dealers (more than 300).
The most interesting conditions were offered by PriceControl, while they promised to create a monitoring system exclusively for our needs. There were some difficulties in the setup process, this was due to the different structure of dealer online stores, but the guys coped with the difficulties that arose, and in the future, if problems arose, they always quickly solved them. After some time, we discovered that dealers do not dump on websites, but do it in Yandex.Market. Therefore, together with Price Control, we set up a price monitoring system in the Market, which made it possible to achieve 100% compliance with the MAP/ MSRP for our products throughout the Russian market from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad.
We are especially grateful for the automated system for notifying violators about dumping, which significantly frees managers from the routine work of notifying dealers about violations.
Monitoring prices in online stores is an obligatory routine for every manufacturer and importer who sells their goods online.

We often hear the question – monitoring how to do it. Let’s start with something else, monitoring prices is not an end in itself, but a tool. First of all, you need to determine the purpose of your monitoring.
To control compliance with your pricing policy on the Internet, you need to find platforms that sell your brands. We recommend controlling the entire online market, but you can limit price parsing to a number of marketplaces or price aggregators.
To monitor competitors’ prices, you need to identify your direct competitors for each product category and set up the collection of information from their websites for further analysis of their prices.
Often it is also necessary to monitor the merchants of large marketplaces and a number of price aggregators.
The program for monitoring competitors’ prices contains a high-quality parser of competitors’ prices, a block for analyzing the collected information, and a block for re-evaluating according to the rules you set.
If you have any difficulties with self-collection – please contact our service.

The term “Dynamic Pricing” originates from the way airline tickets are priced based on seat availability and competitors’ prices.
For modern online stores, this technique is also well applicable.
They regularly monitor prices on the Internet, and adjust their offers based on competitors’ offers.
The price parser in online stores is one of the most common
price monitoring software.
It scans competitors’ websites according to a predetermined schedule and collects all information about prices, discounts and availability of goods on them.
Then the program automatically re-evaluates prices on its own website, and so on many times a day.
Online price monitoring is perfectly legal. The price parser is configured to collect information that is freely available on websites and marketplaces.
Anyone can view this information and use it as they see fit. Online stores do not hide it, but often add it
in advertising and mailing their offers.
Services for automatic monitoring of site prices only make data collection fast and analysis convenient.
The price monitoring service is a complex software and hardware complex designed to solve the problems of price control on the Internet for manufacturers and importers and competitive pricing for online stores and merchants.
Firstly, it is software that can collect and aggregate price data on the Internet.
Secondly, it is a database with a user-friendly interface that allows customers to analyze the prices of competitors and partners.
Thirdly, it is a convenient tool for revaluing your own goods based on competitor prices.

The price tracker and the price parser have a lot in common, but there are also differences.
Both of these tools are computer programs. Both can track and transmit to the customer the price of a product or service on the Internet.
The tracker is usually programmed to trigger and transmit data under certain conditions. For example, the price of a certain product in an online store has decreased or a promotion has appeared …
The parser usually collects information about prices on marketplaces or in stores on a schedule. For example, it is configured to collect competitors’ prices several times a day. Price Check with a parser gives a picture of prices for a period, the tracker highlights only the moments of price changes.
Price monitoring on sites is always a process associated with many unknowns. Each site has its own architecture, is built on different constructors or written by hand, has its own protection against parsing. Until you start setting up the parser for collection, you don’t know what problems you will encounter.
Marketplace site price monitoring is usually more difficult to set up. Behind each marketplace is a large team of professional programmers. In some cases, they create such protection against automatic price collection from their pages that it becomes difficult or not cost-effective.
Often this is due to the desire of the marketplaces themselves to sell price information to users. A living example is Yandex Market.
The price parser in online stores is a complex computer program with many settings. To obtain a reliable result of data parsing, you need to have an understanding of the structure of store sites, the principles of data collection, ways to protect sites from parsing, and mechanisms to bypass them.
The price parser for online stores cannot be configured for all platforms at the same time. To collect prices from different sites, we use different parsers with exclusive features and settings.
The Price Control service takes care of all the settings for collecting data and comparing products. Our clients simply give us the nomenclature and list of platforms for price monitoring. All work on matching and setting up parsers is done by our specialists.
