Customers Say Your Prices Are Higher than Those of Competitors? Offer A Good Bargain with Price Match 2.0

Price Match 2.0 Release

You are already familiar with the type of customers who wander around your website and in the end leave with no words and no purchases. It’s highly possible they have visited nearby store around the corner (your competitor’s marketplace) and now assess a price difference for the same products not in your favor. What to do in this situation? Match prices!

The Price Match extension allows customers to inform you about lower prices on the same items in other webstores, so you can provide clients with the hottest discounts and lowest prices at just the right time.

You can’t set a wise and flexible marketing strategy without playing with prices. Updating Price Match to 2.0 version, you are welcome to define, activate and send discounts to customers, based on rivals’ current price levels. And there is much more coming with this update I intentionally hid inside the post.

Besides Price Match functionality for guest customers that enables admins to attach discounts to customer requests for lower prices, the Price Match 2.0 is enriched with some other essential features.

Smart calculation of discount in absolute & percentage values. Merchants can compare the difference between competitor’s and their price, then the gap between their price and the requested price and come up with a relevant discount amount.

▪ Whenever admin approves or rejects customer requests for lower prices, corresponding Approved or Rejected emails will be sent to customers.

▪ Admin may configure the discount expiration date and the discount usage, i.e. how many times it can be applied.
