PriceMe recently launched a lot of new features and website improvements including lists and favourites. Here’s a rundown of the most important ones.
You can now favourite products, categories and searches that you like. Just click the heart icon in the upper right corner to favourite something.
You have easy access to your favourites on the search bar. We’ll then tailor the content for you based on what you like (i.e your favourites).
Note: Favourites require that you have a user account and login. This way you bring your favourites with you wherever you go regardless of device.
Recent price drops for your favourites are displayed on the second tab. This is ideal if you want to track price changes for categories and products that you like.
The list functionality has moved from the tab in the lower left corner to the search bar at the top underneath favourites. Lists are ideal for creating a comparison basket, saving wishlists to share etc.
Products that launched within 20 days have a ‘New‘ label attached to them. New releases are also highlighted using the ‘Coming soon‘ label. We’ll shortly add ‘Best seller‘ and ‘Sale‘ labels.
Sometimes it’s difficult to tell from a product name what the important features and specs are. We, therefore, added a summary string that shows some of the main product attributes.
Note: The summary string is only available for certain categories at the moment, but we plan to expand coverage.
Category icons and filters
Many of the pages for verticals have been redesigned. The category icons use a consistent look-and-feel (not all categories, we’re still adding more icons…). A drop-down appears when you mouse over on the category icon. It displays the most popular brands in the category and quick links to filters. For example, mouse over on digital cameras brings up quick links to digital SLRs, compact cameras and new releases.
The filters on the catalogue page have moved to the left-hand side. The advantage is that the main product listings appear higher up on the page. The catalogue page now also uses Ajax when filters are applied, which contributes to a better user experience.
Rich attribute display
Some product attributes are better visualised using rich data. For example, the processor speed is displayed as a speedometre for iPhone SE. The colour of the needle indicates how it compares to other products in the category.
The rich data introduced above also displays a numerical comparison of the product attribute with the average value for the category and how it ranks within the category. Just press the button and a pop-up appears.
Printer friendly product page
It used to be difficult to print the price list on the product pages. Not anymore. We now offer a clean print page that only shows the information you need (ads, links etc have been stripped out).
