Competitor price monitoring is the act of identifying, tracking, and comparing product prices of business rivals in any given market. Most popularly, compactor price monitoring is used in the retail and eCommerce industry by businesses that want to compare their products and prices with their direct competitors to stay alert of price fluctuations and make strategic moves against them. eCommerce is the ideal market for price monitoring as most online retailers make their products and pricing publicly available on their e-shops.

Here is an outline of the service DataSearch can provide for you:

  1. Account registration on
  2. Establish who the competitors you want to track are (either you give us their websites, or we find them for you)
  3. Our administrators set up the system as per your requirements and link the project to your account
  4. The system then collects raw data from the web (prices, images, descriptions, etc.) and converts it into your preferred format
  5. You can then log in to your DataSearch account to view or download your data
  6. The price data for some products is automatically matched from the different competitors and presented to you in a comparative format
  7. You can then quickly manually complete the matching process and edit products to your liking (we can also do this step for you at an extra cost)
  8. The system generates reports and graphs for each match to show price changes over time and comparisons between the competitors

We offer clients further options for fully integrating collected data into their business reports or our smart repricing systems at an extra cost.

The only task our client needs to perform to start using DataSearch is to either provide us with the competitors' websites they want us to monitor or to give us guidelines to locate potential competitors (e.g., Top 5 fruit suppliers in Europe).

Each price monitoring plan Is a monthly subscription customized to the needs of each client. You can choose from three base plans based on how many products (urls) you want to monitor, how frequently you want to receive updates (Daily. Weekly. or Monthly). and which add-ons you need (auto-matching. list of new product updates. etc.). See our full pricing list here. After making your choices, you will see the final price of your customized plan with the initial account setup fee (€75 per competitor website) and V.A.T (19%) added to your total price. If you wish to set up a plan with larger or different needs, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at

You can monitor as many competitors as you like. Our plans do not limit how many competitors you want to monitor as long as the number of product URLs you wish to monitor Is within your plan's limit. Please note however that each competitor website you track incurs a separate one-time setup fee of €75 per competitor website.

Our system setup for each project takes up to 10 working days. The time frame of completion depends on the nature of each competitor's website.
