Price Alerts: Track Price Changes and Score the Best Deals

Found an item you’re interested in, but holding off until there’s a price drop to score the best deal?

Track price changes and get price drop alerts with Visualping.

Visualping monitors web pages for changes, so you don’t have to.

Why You Need Price Alerts

Most of us don’t have a lot of time to shop. I know I don’t.

Without the help of price alerts, you may research various different versions of a product until you find one that speaks to you, only to have to compare it to several other sites for the best price. Then throw in the possibility of a looming price drop. When will this organic matcha green tea go on sale? Is it cheaper at this site, or the other? Maybe the price will drop on another site.

Luckily, you don’t have to track price changes on your own. Website monitoring tools, like Visualping automate the process of tracking price changes and alert you, via email, when there’s a price drop.

Most of us don’t have time to monitor and compare ever-fluctuating prices. Spend less time scouring the internet, and use Visualping to track price changes and get price alerts.

How to Use Visualping for Price Alerts

Step-by-Step Guide

1. To track a product page for price changes, go to Visualping’s home page, and paste the URL of the page into the search bar. Click Go.

2. When the product page appears, select the area of the page you wish to track – for price drop alerts, that’s usually the area of the page with the listed price.

3. Next, customize how often you want Visualping to check for changes.

4. Make sure Visual-compare is selected. This is the monitoring mode best for tracking price changes, as it monitors web page pixels. With Visual-compare, the email alerts will include a screenshot of the new price highlighted in red.

5. Enter the email address you wish to receive price change alerts.

6. Click Start monitoring. Visualping will send you an email, prompting you to make a password for your account.

And that’s it! As soon as Visualping detects a page change, you’ll receive a price drop alert in your mailbox.

Conclusion

Shopping smartly takes time and effort.

You check out several different versions of the product from several sites, comparing each product page for the best price. You monitor the ever-shifting prices over time, scouring for the best deal.

Instead, use website monitoring tools, like Visualping, to track price changes and receive price alerts.

Happy price monitoring!
