What is PriceSpy?

PriceSpy is one of the UK’s largest price and product comparison sites. Products on PriceSpy are placed in multiple categories that allow customers to find only the products they are looking for. Product names and prices are displayed with additional information available when the product is clicked. The merchant websites shown below the products allow customers to purchase from the seller they find most suitable. Each seller ranked also encourages buyers to buy from your store. PriceSpy is a version of Prisjakt for the UK, Ireland and New Zealand.

Since the product data feed fields in Pricespy and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these parameters to their product data, which generates Product Feed. For the reason that Magento 2 now does not support feed generating, we need to use Product Feed extension. PriceSpy allows you to upload your feeds as CSV, XML and plain text files, no Excel files (xlxs, xls) or the like. Note: Limited use of the XML file for PriceSpy since it is quite complex.
