Webinse Price Grabber
Tired of checking prices on products on different stores (like 6PM, eBay, etc.)? Here is a handy solution for you – Webinse Magento Pricegrabber. It allows you to track and set the lowest prices on your products – easily.
Webinse PriceGrabber allows you to set up lowest prices automatically or manually.
You can add the price rule in System -> Configuration -> PriceGrabber. Extension will automatically determine the price according to the next rule: the minimum price of external websites + price rule that you added.
In System -> Configuration -> PriceGrabber you also can specify on how tag parser gets the price of the product from external websites. PriceGrabber also allows to specify how to update prices (automatically twice a day or manually).
PriceGrabber checks validity of the entered tags and links and also sends you notification if entered data is invalid.
You can add links to external websites in the following way: - go to Catalog -> Manage Products grid - check need product (it should be a simple product) - on the edit product check you will see a PriceGrabber tab, there you can set links to external site also you can see time when product has been updated
You can check the validity of the link in the PriceGrabber grid with the “Check link” button! Also you can see how long ago the prices were updated and pricing information on this item from other resources (from product pages or grid Manage Products).
Note: This extension is guaranteed to work with Magento Default Theme. We don’t say that it won’t work with customization at all, but due to the the great majority of Custom themes we cannot guarantee the proper work of the extension with all of them.
- You can set links to the external websites and check their validity
- You can see the prices of competitors in a convenient format
- Automatically upgraded prices from external resources twice a day

Note: Extension supports 5 websites: eBay, Zappos, 6PM, TigerDirect, BestBuy. With the latest version you may also add new external websites dynamically but Price Grabber is not guaranteed to work with all sort of websites so it might need additional customization for your requirements.
Note:Extension works only with one currency simultaneously. No multi-currency support.
Also in order Price Grabber extension works properly, you need to set up a Cron job first.
Note:Extension supports only simple products
