Description

uCompare is a stand alone template for Price Tapestry offering a variety of features to kick-start your niche comparison website right away.

Grid style search result pages with additional sort select menus for product filtering as well as price slider.

Price alerts allow visitors to subscribe to price drop alerts so that when the price of the product drops to a specified amount they will get an email notification which is linked straight to the merchant with the affiliate link.

uCompare also retains the original format of seperate product and review pages, all products and reviews have schema mark up which is recognized by search engines so they can pull the data into their search results, price, review / rating etc.

Third party integration – Ebay & Amazon API search results flow seamlessly on single product pages. Maximize profits with Ebay’s 30 day cookie. Ebay and Amazon results display below the product detail offering more choice / comparisons for your visitors. (currently being updated)
