Setting up a price comparison widget.


  • type: “price-comparison”. This field is required.
  • template: Template name that you want to use with your widget.
  • barcode: The barcode of the product to search, can be one of: UPC,EAN,GTIN,ISBN,ASIN.
  • plainlink: The link of the product web page in a merchant’s site. Note: the link must be plain, if you provide a tracked link the service may not work.
  • search-keywords: List of keywords to search in the product name, separated by space. For example: ‘Dickies hat red’ or ‘iPhone X’.
  • exclude-keywords: List of keywords to exclude from the search, separated by space. Any result matching any of the provided keywords will be stripped out from the results. For example: ‘Dickies hat red’ or ‘iPhone 10’.
  • price-range: Range of prices where the ‘salePlace’ of the returned products should belong. The range is defined in the form -, for example 20-30 or 19.9-26.8. The star can be used to avoid to limit one side of the range, for example -20 equals to 0-20 and 20- will take all results with a sale price >= 20 Note: using is the same as not defining any filter.
  • filter-merchant: Comma separated list of merchant IDs ex. 8902,3840,3905 In this case the search is limited to the merchants in the list. The list can be followed by ‘:exclude’ ex. 8902,3840,3905:exclude. In this case the merchants in the list will be excluded from the search.
  • limit: Limits the number of results, for example if limit=3 the service will return up to 3 products. The products in the response will be those from the best performing merchants according to our merchant-ranking syste.
  • sid: Custom source ID to be used for tracking purposes. Can contain only letters, digits, and the following punctuation characters: ‘-‘,’_’,’.’,’~’. Cannot be longer than 32 characters.
