Default Do Comparison Sets update prices automatically and how often do they update ?

I have noticed on comparison sets prices are not always the same when clicked through to Merchant ?

Will prices automatically change on the price comparison views when Merchants change their prices ? If not is there a way we can force the price to sync ?

With Merchants changing prices daily its important to be displaying the correct price otherwise what is the purpose of having a Comapison view feature ? Surely its to display the latest and best price available ?

See www.gamerspy.co.uk and the Fifa 12 comparison view in the right hand sidebar. The second Merchant down (ShopTo.net) says Fifa 12 is 39.85 on their website but when you click through to the Merchant the live price is 42.85.

Thank you for your time.

Hi

Comparison set prices will update when your store updates (which is configurable here: The Factory > Your Store > Store menu > Basic Store Settings).

That being said, we do not update merchant feeds on a daily basis, so if a merchant is changing their prices on a daily basis, that information will not be reflected in the Factory or on your store. Currently, it's not possible to update merchant feeds daily.

Note that ShopTo.net has 2 product records for FIFA 12 Special Edition in its datafeed - one at the price of 39.85 and one at the price of 42.85.

Maybe you just added the wrong product to the comparison set?

Thanks Stefan, I'll be a little more careful when selecting products for Comparison Sets.

Cheers bud.
