Downsides

  • Sniffie supports automated matching with manual confirmation. To be more precise, you are only allowed to add products manually if you have it in the system. Classic manual matching approach is not applicable.
  • They have a pretty unusual way of price monitoring: instead of monitoring single product pages, they are monitoring category pages, and from there, they capture multiple products / their prices. As a result, they limit your account to X URLs (category pages) and Y products.
  • Sniffie software is limited to track product categories from the sites with good IT protection. Moreover, it's quite difficult for them to monitor marketplaces and complex sites with different product parameters (products which have variation of size / color, all shown on the same product page).
