BENEFITS

  • Sniffie's intuitive tool turns complex price monitoring into a simple one. Once you install Sniffie Web Extension, you can parse the data on the browser by category or product and then serialize the extraction process. From a single data point to extracting data from multiple sources is possible with Sniffie.
  • Sniffie gives you a way to monitor the market and get notifications when someone changes prices. Also, the tool allows you to export your data into different formats and onto familiar platforms.
  • Furthermore, Sniffie offers integrations into different dashboards, PIM and ERP systems, including MS Excel, Google Sheets, and Tableau. All you need to do is, create an API link with a few clicks and import your data into your preferred software.
  • By using Sniffie's price optimization algorithm, you can set pricing strategies, campaigns and optimize your prices. In case you're using Google Shopping, Shopify or Magento, you can integrate your store with Sniffie and perform semi or fully automated repricing. Or you can even decide on the products to be price optimized from Sniffie's mobile app.

Downsides

  • Sniffie supports automated matching with a manual confirmation. The classic manual matching approach is not applicable.
  • It's difficult for Sniffie to monitor sites with different product parameters (products that have a variation of size or color, all shown on the same product page).
  • The service is more targeted towards enterprise-level customers so it can be a bit pricey for small businesses.
  • Sniffie doesn’t offer a free trial, so you can’t test it out before deciding on any payments.

Is it good for you?

YES

  • If you come from an industry where all competitors use same part numbers such as; EAN / UPC.

  • If you don’t have budget concerns

NO

  • If you are only looking for a price monitoring or a web scraping software
  • If you are looking for a self-service software
  • If you have a small number of products to be monitored.
