Frequently Asked Questions
What is Pricentile?
Pricentile is a shopping search engine. You can compare prices (including shipping) from online stores from around the world. We then show you which products are available for shipping to your country in your local currency. We currently have fragrances only.
Why is Pricentile the most accurate in the world?
Most price comparison websites, including Google Shopping, get their prices sent every day by participating “partner” shops. This means that:
- each shop has to pay to be listed
- some send partial or incorrect price lists
- shipping costs are often not included
Pricentile works like a web search engine: we don't wait for the shop to send us prices.
- we do not charge shops to be shown in our results
- we use our own in-house tools to look at each shop's website and take the latest price listed there
- our tools also look up how much it costs to ship the product to you
- we use advanced algorithms to match the same products, even if they are misspelled
We do this each and every day.
How do you calculate shipping?
We look at the shipping rates published by each shop and build a model to calculate the costs, including free shipping deals, additional surcharges, etc.
How do you decide which shops to add?
We look for trustworthy shops with clearly published shipping rates and good product selection.
