Strategy

Shopping Providers

Consider the following when choosing Providers:

  • You must initiate contact with each site to which you want to transmit data. This includes opening accounts and completing your information used by many Providers.
  • Most sites have a cost-per-click fee model. Be a wise consumer and qualify all third parties before entering into an agreement.
  • Most sites do not allow you to modify data after it is accepted by the site. A new feed would need to be sent with modified data.

Please see below for information on Shopping providers. If there is an engine you don't see, let us know by creating a support case.

CSE Pricing Models


Most CSEs work on a cost-per-click (CPC) basis, which means the merchant is charged every time a consumer clicks on one of their product offers listed on a CSE. Exact pricing varies by site, but usually involves category specific minimums with an option for merchants to increase the CPC they are willing to pay by bidding at the category level or in some cases, the product level.

Some sites work on a cost-per-acquisition (CPA) basis, which means the merchant pays the engine a percentage of orders placed by consumers reaching the merchant's web site from that engine.

A few sites are free.
