Compare Items

I would like to add a compare function to the store. Essentially, when a person clicks on the "+" symbol I would like it to go to another page that has similar items from different merchants so the shopper can compare pricing. Is this possible without creating each page and feed manually?

I should be more specific. When you click the + symbol, I don't want it to be "similar items" I want it to be the "same" item but from different vendors that might be offering a different price...

Hope that makes sense.

Yes, we have a comparison set display but not exactly how you describe it. This video will provide more info:

I was aware of the comparison set, but it's not exactly what I am looking for. Essentially what I'd like to do is, have someone click the + sign and go to related products. I see there is a "Query String" is there someway to use that to generate search results for someone that clicked the + sign on a product?

For example, someone clicks the + sign on X five ten climbing shoe or the + sign on X la sportiva climbing shoe. Could the link generate a search query?

This may or may not be too custom, if so could you point me to a website for more information. I don't know what this function is called so it is hard to google for it...

Thanks Eric

Unfortunately, that's not possible. There's no real way to build dynamic comparison sets at this time.

Hey Eric,

Instead of a dynamic comparison set, can we create dynamic tag or search results? I feel like there has to be a way to utilize the plus button to generate some kind of search results... If not, thats fines I am just going to move on.

Of course... there's already a built-in tag page. For example:

These types of pages already exist in your store by default.

great, how would I go about assigning those pages to the + sign so if someone clicked the + button, it would automatically go to the tag pages relevant to that item? Can this be done?

Why not just display the tags on your pages? Just display the tag cloud for the product details.

Mainly I'd just like to use the space. It seems simple it enough to link the button to a relavent tag page or a search page with relatent results. If it is a pain, I will just get rid of the button, no harm done.

Eric December 5th, 2011 01:52 PM

But you'll need to use one of the tags as the 'relevant' search terms. So the tag cloud is probably best. Here's a video about that:
