Hi

Can you explain the difference between your Compare & Compare+ licensing packages, as there is considerable cost difference. Also am i right in understanding that both the theme and a license is required for comparison to work?

awesem

Compare is a WordPress theme which allows you to create a price comparison website, within the admin area of Compare you can import products, merchants, brands and categories from a csv file or add them manually using the admin screens.

Compare+ is a WordPress plugin which extends Compare to allow you to link directly into affiliate feeds. I’m sure you know but just in case, affiliate feeds are feeds of data from merchants that list all the current products and prices from their websites, they contain a unique link to yourself, once Compare+ has been configured these links (along with prices, categories and product details) are automatically imported into Compare every day to keep your site up to date. Compare+ also comes with other features such as a link into the Amazon API so that you can import products from the Amazon website, it also it has category mapping and product mapping functionality. Compare+ is more expensive than Compare due to the power and automation it brings to your price comparison website.

In summary you will always need to purchase Compare to create a comparison site, and you will need 1 licence of Compare for every website you wish to create using it. Then if you want to extend your Compare powered site to be more powerful and have automated imports from multiple sources you will need to purchase 1 Compare+ licence for every site you wish to use it on.

Hello, I want to create a price comparison website and this theme compare has really impressed me.I just wanted to make some queries and clarifications about the featues of the theme before I buy it. I want to do a Price compariso of a single product which is avaliable on different stores and then let user select the store from which they want to buy from and then a buy button takes a user to that store.is this thing possible in this theme? If yes then how?

Second thing I want to ask that are there different colour combinations avalible for this them?

Thanks in advance,waiting for your reply :)

Dear RushanWebDev,

Thanks for your query and interest in our Compare theme.

From what you are saying, it sounds like our theme might be able to handle this scenario. You can easily add a single product with multiple retailers and for each retailer there would be an individual “buy now” button.

With regards to colour combinations, these are set in the theme options and you can pick any colour you like.

We’ve just updated our trial sites and please feel free to request login details over at http://trial.wppricecomparison.com/

Hi,

I am interested in your theme and plugin Compare+ but I have some questions : 1- If I build my website in multiple languages on oother domain extension, will it count as another licence I need to purchase or is it still one licence as it will be the same site ? 2- from what I see, the sidebar product search is using Javascript to change the results displayed without changing the page. Would it be possible to change this sidebar product search to enable real links pointing to other pages (with url, H1, description, ... changed according to the selection) ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Zin9461,

Thanks for your email and interest in our Compare theme and Compare+ plugin.

1.) Licenses – as long as you use the theme for a single application then it should be fine. According to the license help page, you wouldn’t be allowed to use a ThemeForest theme on multiple domains without the appropriate license. Please refer to the TF help page here for more details: http://themeforest.net/licenses

2. Sidebar – yes, the sidebar widget uses AJAX so that the results load on the same page without having to refresh the whole page. If you would like to change this then you could either use a custom menu widget ( WordPress default widget ), a simple text widget or create your own bespoke widget. If you need help creating such a widget then please feel free to contact our customisation partners over at http://www.awesem.com/elto

Kind regards

Hi Olaf,

Thank you for the quick and complete reply, I will check everything.

Hi,

I have a few questions before buying this theme:

1. What do you mean by this from the details “Intended for Price Comparisons with a small number of products”? What is a small number of products?

2. I am thinking of building a comparison website but for another area than retail. I am not interested in the automatic CSV import system because most of the content/features will be static. I want to launch a comparison website that compares different webhosts to eachother. Can I customize/add new featues other than just brands, price and category or do I have to stick with them? I’d like to have ‘webhost’ on the top level and then lot’s of features underneath that people can filter with. And then price of course. So, my question is basically: How set are all the filter types?

Thanks,

Default-user

Sorry, forgot:

3. What is the difference at this theme and the one that you can see at awesem.com?

awesem

Hi BTNG,

Thanks for your interest in our Compare theme.

Regarding your questions:

1. Small number of products – we recommend to start off small with a maximum of a few thousand products rather than millions of products. There is no restriction as such as the limits mainly depend on your web server’s capabilities and resources.

2. At the moment adding additional filters requires customisation. In our Compare+ product you can add any field to the import but you would still have to customise the theme to show this on the frontend and you also have to amend the filters to make these filters searchable. Please feel free to contact our customisation partner over at www.awesem.com/elto for a quote for this customisation

3. The version we have on AWESEM.com/compare/ is the previous non-responsive version. You can see the latest version of our Compare theme here: http://demo.wppricecomparison.com/compare/ Soon we will be retiring the non-responsive version and all new features will be added to the responsive version.

Please let me know if you have any further queries on this.

Thanks

Olaf

Hi I’m interested in getting this Theme but my question is: 1. Will i get the products like it is in the demo try out my site. 2. Will the site take the exact same shape as the demo immediately i install the theme or i have to do all the work myself?

Thanks

awesem

Hi victorajabor,

Thanks for your email. We’ve included a sample file which contains the products from the demo and you can easily import this.

At the moment, when you install the theme, it won’t look exactly like the demo and there are a couple of things you need to set up yourself, e.g. set the homepage, import the products etc. Funnily enough, we are working on an import routine at the moment that will simplify this process so that everything looks like the demo site. Give us another two weeks and then this will be part of the theme.

Please feel free to try out our theme over at http://trial.wppricecomparison.com/ and let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks

Olaf

Please I will appreciate a step by step guide on how to update my site to this new responsive version without destroying any of my custom setting and website data. Thanks

awesem

Hi fayah887,

We haven’t got a step-by-step guide yet and we are hoping to add this to http://www.wppricecomparison.com/ in the coming weeks.

If you are considering to upgrade your site to our new responsive theme we STRONGLY advise to take a FULL BACKUP of all your files and database before you replace it with your new site.

We also suggest that install our new theme on a development or staging server first so that you can fully test your site before promoting it to your production environment.

A lot of the functionality, e.g. the price comparison aspect is backward compatible however there are a couple of things we’ve changed with regards to widgets and the homepage and we might have to readd and configure your widgets again.

With regards to theme customisation, you will have to merge any changes you may have done into the new theme.

Please let me know if you have any questions on this.

Thanks

Olaf

Thank you. Will install in a test environment and see how it goes. Awesome job by the way. All the best. I believe since I have already purchased this theme before I should be able to download this latest updates or do I need to purchase again

awesem

Yes, simply download the theme here from ThemeForest and it will contain the latest version.

Hi, I have some questions: 1. The compare+ plugin only works with compare theme? 2. Compare+ plugin is compatible with new compare responsive theme? 3. Is possible have related products on product page? 4. On the search sidebar filter, when you select for example Cameras, the brands will filtered too only for the cameras brands? 5. The updates for the theme and plugins are free for life?

Thanks

awesem

Hi publimediapt.

Thank you for your queries:

1. Compare+ plugin only works with the Compare theme 2. Compare+ is compatible with the new Compare Responsive version 3. Compare Responsive automatically shows related products from the same category. 4. I think the filters work the way you described and the filters will take brands into account in addition to the selected category. 5. At the moment the updates to the theme and plugin are free but this might change in future.

Please feel free to request login details to test drive our product here:

Hi,

I’am having som major issues. Everything is installed and complete. But there is some problems when i try to add retailers to my products. For some reason it won’t update to an existing retailer, nothing happens and the import function through csv won’t work either. Just saying “No such file or directory”.

Hope to hear from you soon!

It’s just the “Products Management” and the “import csv function” that doesn’t work. As i said i can’t update retailers to products and not change Display Order. And the CSV importer says when trying to import “No such file or directory”.

Did you guys get the mail i sent you yesterday? ยจ

Hi awesem,

We are about to build a price comparison website and we want to use the compare theme but we don’t know whether it would be possible to create separate accounts for all our advertisers to log in into their account and update their product listing & offers as we do not want to link directly into affiliate feeds as the beginning.

looking forward to your reply, Jass

awesem

Hi Jass,

Thanks for your query and interest in our Compare theme. There isn’t a login area for advertisers. You could have a look at our Compare+ theme where you can import XML or CSV files which can be located on third party sites. This way you can allow your advertisers to import their own products. If you do require a login are then this would require customisation and please feel free to discuss this with our customisation partner Elto.com

Thanks

Hi, we’re considering using this for a financial comparison site comparing mortgages in tables. Has anyone done this using this theme and could you please share an example of existing work? Thanks

I like to build a shopping comparison site using wordpress and is wondering if your theme I can do what I want. here is what I want: 1. I want a shop comparison site like pow.com or even shopping.com only that I want to still use your sidebar, just like how pow is setup 2. I want to use shopping API datafeed or shopzilla to push products to my site.

Can I do these? Especially the part about pushing products AUTOMATICALLY FROM SHOPPING.com api or shopzilla. How easy?

Hi I was wondering if your theme is the right fit for what I want to do

I would like to setup a price comparison that pays me per click basis. Therefore I want to use shopping.com API or shopzilla API. Can I integrate any of these in your theme? How would I do that?

Will it be also possible to along with shopping.com or shopzilla add other merchants? These merchants will show along with the above mention companies in comparing products.

I will be buying the compare+ along with compare theme

Hi,

One pre-purchase question.

How does compare+ handle different feed imports with the same products. Can it automatically discover the product exists and adds the price to it, or will it just create a duplicate product?

Hi, I asked some questions some weeks back where were: 1. Will i get the products like it is in the demo try out my site. 2. Will the site take the exact same shape as the demo immediately i install the theme or i have to do all the work myself?

And you asked me to check after 2weeks. I would like to know the progress of my questions.

Hi,

Congrats for a great theme that actually is very clean and easy on eye – especially the new wide version. I’m interested, just have a couple of questions -

I’m basically trying to build a site where one can compare the specs of each product side-by-side and then decide on one product and buy that product from different affiliate stores of my country (India) from the link in the products own page. So for this I need an “add to feature compare” like button and a “Buy now” like button. Feature compare will take them to the pop-up comparison table and buy now will take to the affiliate listing page. Is that possible. Do you have any extension for a feature comparison?

2. Does it support any affiliate? Does price of each affiliate auto-update over time?

Regards, Pallab
