Build Your Own Comparison Shopping Site - Articles Surfing

As shoppers reject the malls for merchandise found on their brightly lit computer screens, comparison-shopping Web sites have become white hot. With the ability to automatially compare the prices of items from thousands of online retailers web users are flocking to these new homes of the bargain for some easy savings.

For the aspiring comparison shopping site owner there are few software options availble including http://www.kaonsoftwares.com/price-comparison-script.html and http://pricetapestry.com which offer PHP MySql solutions.

Kaon softwares script is the most expensive costing almost $500 dollars at the time of righting whereas PriceTapestry cost '45 GB/sterling.

The price differnece is a directly reflection fo the polish put into both scripts - with Kaon providing a very night out the box solution whereas Price Tapestry takes a more "heres the framework" buidl it the way you like it - and as such is quite ugly yet functional out of the box.

Both scripts take Affiliate marketting Datafeeds allowing the sites to be propogated with thousands of items from a wide variety of retailers automatically.

Once the databases are propagated it becomes a matter of common php /database manipulations to manage the sites as you desire.
