Hi, is it possible to create an insurance comparison site using this theme? Thanks

awesem

As long as you have something to compare two products or services on then it should be possible to create an insurance comparison site. Our theme contains functionality to add custom currencies which could be pretty much anything, e.g. currencies / prices, percentages or anything else that would make sense. Depending on your exact requirements you might have to do a little bit of customisation but in principle it should work. Feel free to try out our theme here: http://trial.wppricecomparison.com/

Thanks

Hi awesem :)

I hope you are well. I have a question, What difference between Compare and the other comparison price CMS ? Also if I buy the regular licence for $48, then in few month I will get compare+, do I need to buy the full price ?

Another question : is there a limitation of products while importing CSV file ? Thanks

awesem

Hi farid1979,

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

Regarding your queries:

1. Can you clarify what other price comparison CMS you mean? 2. The cost for Compare+ plugin is in addition to the theme here on ThemeForest. We occasionally offer promotion codes so do look out for those over the next couple of months. 3. There is no limitation in our product – your biggest limitation is your web server. If you are on shared hosting you won’t be able to process large files and many products and in any case we recommend that you start off small with a small number of products.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Thanks

If I buy the regular license for $48, will it be the layout with the blue header or the one with red logo and green search-area?

All the best!

Hi MrGroen,

When you purchase Compare here on ThemeForest you get both versions – Compare Non-Responsive (which we will stop supporting at some point) and Compare Responsive:

Non-Reponsive: http://www.awesem.com/compare

Responsive: http://demo.wppricecomparison.com/compare/

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Thanks

Hi I have purchased the product, however the Products Management page does not seem to be working correctly, I can’t add retailer or save a new display order. It says that everything has saved correctly but it does not change. :crying:

Perfect, thanks.

Hello,

I am interested in the compare template but I would like to find out a couple of things.

1) What is the main difference between this template and a regular wordpress template? I noticed you have four different prices: Compare Standard – $48, Compare+ Standard – $249, Compare+ Advanced – $599 and Compare+ Expert – $1490. Is there any difference between Compare Standard and Compare+ Standard?

2) Can I develop this first on a subdomain of an existing domain and then move it to its final domain at a later date? – this is because the Compare Standard states use on one domain.

Thanks for your audience

awesem

Hi MiviSystems,

Thanks for your query and interest in our theme.

The difference between Compare and other themes is that Compare contains additional functionality and styling required for building a price comparison website.

With Compare+ you can extend the functionality and it gives you automated products imports via the Amazon or TradeDoubler API as well as pretty much any XML or CSV product feed. The advanced and export packages are for the same products but with additional licenses for more sites.

Developing your site on a different URL is fine I think according to ThemeForest’s terms & conditions. You should make sure that Google doesn’t pick up your dev site and we typically put a htpasswd on all our sites in development to make sure that this never happens.

Please let me know if you have any further queries.

Thanks

Hi,

- can we easily change languages?

- “Simply specify the product ID and Compare does the rest.” How does this actually works? / In foreign languages?

“Price Table Shortcode

Include Price Comparison tables on any page or blog post using the price table shortcode. Simply specify the product ID and Compare does the rest.”

kind regards

awesem

Hi martinali91,

Thanks for your queries:

With WordPress it’s pretty easy to change languages and our Compare theme is translation ready

With regards to product mapping, if you use Compare then you specify the product ID and if it’s the same between two products then they get displayed on the same page in the same product table. It’s really that simple.

With Compare+, the theme tries to automatically map the products if they have the same name, EAN or product ID. If it can’t map the products automatically then these need to be mapped once.

With the shortcode, you simple use the shortcode and specify the product ID and then the theme will render the price comparison table for that product anywhere in your content. This might be useful if you are writing an article in your blog about a specific product.

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

Thanks

Olaf

Why am I only allowed to enter 13 product categories and 13 brands on the site? Is this a bug or will I need to upgrade to put more than 13?

awesem

Hi jborgella,

Thanks for your query. This shouldn’t be the case and there are no limits in place. We will have a look into this for you to see if we can replicate this.

Thanks

Olaf

Hello there!!! Do I understand right – Compare is a theme only, Compare+ is a theme and the plug-in and the rest: Compare Advance and Expert is theme and plug-in but with ability to use the same license on various sites? Can I buy only Compare for $48 and have ability to create comparison website with search and compare options or do I need to go for Compare+ at the least to have that ability?

Look forward to hear from you. Kind regards Don

awesem

Hi Don,

Thanks for your query and interest in our theme and plugin. That’s right, the theme costs $48 and it gives you the ability to manually build a price comparison site using a single CSV file or by adding the products via the admin area.

With the Compare+ plugin you can extend Compare and you can then import external CSV or XML feeds or get products via the Amazon and TradeDoubler API.

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

Thanks

Hi Olaf, thanks for the answer. I have trialed it for a bit now. It looks good and easy to use. I wonder, what is the max number of products/clients Compare only can hold? Also, is the theme ‘friendly’ with other plugins like advanced search where customer could use address/town/city to filter the products? Is it used only for retail sector, or can it be changed to compare other sectors? Also, is it just for simple comparison of few products or can it be extended so there are filters to filter the comparison results? Look forward to hear from you. Don

awesem

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us and for your input. At the minute Compare is not tested with other plugins, we are looking to add advanced search functionality to the product some time in 2015 but as yet there is no release date. Compare is primarily for small to medium size price comparison sites and as such is ideal for the retail space as it is prices being compared, again we are looking to extend this but have no release schedule to share at this moment.

Thank you for sharing your view with us, we are very happy to hear ideas from potential customers.

Take care and happy comparing

Compare Team

Hi there,

Any plan to add more “filters” for products? Example for tab: color, operating system, memory, screen size,...

Like that: http://shrani.si/f/1n/Mv/2LIAuwnJ/test.jpg

awesem

Thank you for your interest in our products and for contacting us. At the moment the filters to select from are restricted to price, brand, category and search term, based on customer feedback we are looking to add this feature in a release some time in 2015 but there is no release date as yet. Thank you for the excellent input and have a great day.

Hi rahulsolanki1818,

Your site doesn’t seem to be using our Compare theme. If you have any further queries about our theme then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks

Hi,

I basically have the same question as mAxLL: In the trial version, I have been trying to add filters in the sidebar, but I wasn’t succesfull. Since this is extremely important for finding the right product, it’ll determine whether this theme is suitable or not. Is there any way to add filters?

Thank you.

Ok thank you for your answer.

Is it possible to use compare+ with another theme? I would totally buy it if so. It’s a shame that you may loses sales based on the fact that consumers are restricted to only one, rather not-so-feature-rich theme.

awesem

Hi Rockythewocky,

Thanks for query. At the moment Compare+ only works in conjunction with our Compare theme.

Is there any specific functionality or features that you are looking for in the theme?

Thanks

Olaf

Default-user

Hey Olaf

Sorry if I sounded harsh, that wasn’t my intention.

Does Compare+ work with Commission Junction and Amazon right out of the box?

awesem

Hi Rockythewocky,

That’s okay and you’re right about a standalone version of the plugin. We have this on our longer term roadmap.

With regards to Compare+, we currently have two APIs built in which are Amazon and TradeDoubler. We are hoping to add more APIs over the coming months.

You can also add any XML or CSV feed provided that your server can process the size of the feed as some feeds can be very large.

With regards to the Commission Junction feed, I think you can only grab it via FTP if I am not mistaken and we’re adding support for this in an up-coming release.

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

Thanks

Olaf

Hello,

I have the compare theme and compare+ when I try to load a xml feed it does not load fields like.

<g:price><![CDATA[6.23 EUR]]></g:price>

On category for example I get this error: “No category was specified for this product. Product import failed” While I did certainly specifiy it.

awesem

Hi Hatseflatsh,

I hope you are well and I am sorry that you are experiencing problems with your XML feed. Can you raise a ticket via our new support system here please:

http://www.wppricecomparison.com/support/

Can you also provide a few more details about your feed and we will then get back to you.

Thanks

Olaf

I want to make a price comparision site which is similar to http://www.junglee.com/ or http://www.mysmartprice.com/. Do you have any themes and plugins which are like this and i nned to populate all the product feeds from API directly instead of uploading CSV. Everything should be automatic. Moreover if i want to bulid a site like above what are the requirements. Is any of your themes and plugins can support all the feauteres. If you have any i’ll definitely buy, Please give a demo account if you have any.
