Just what we needed
We have several competitors that allow for "Make Offer" so this will allow us to match that offer and not lose any sales. I think this is definitely worth the money we paid for it.
Great product and idea but styling issues
This is a great idea for an extension and very useful but has many styling issues what we did not like with box placement, size, CSS, etc. Plus it should not be using a button for something like this. We restyled it alot and got it perfect for our needs. So while the features and function are solid in the backend..the frontend needs alot of work for most site. But highly recommended.
Great additon but could be better
This is a very nice extension but for our site need heavy CSS to make it look right. Most was off the page and they have some locked box. It also needs options to show or not show things like who cares about the customers phone number or what they want to pay?? We just manually removed from the code. Also did not like a button for this and changed it to a link instead. Now that we got it the way we want it is great. Just needs way more options in admin on what to show and style, otherwise nice.
Keep in pace with your rivals
Price match functionality is crucial for the majority of online retail stores. This module makes accepting and processing match requests really fast, reducing the chances that your hard won customer base will just gradually dissolve.
Truly lives up to AW own motto, "be ahead of your competitors!":)
I am very happy with Price Match by aheadWorks
In this tough economy, everyone is looking for the best price and I want my items to be the cheapest in the market. With Price Match, my customers are able to receive discounts and let my company know if there are similar products out there that are selling at a lower price. I don’t have time to check out my competitor’s sites and with Price Match I don’t even have to. It’s really a great tool to have to be able to make sure my prices are competitive.
We highly recommend this product as it has resulted in increased sales for our client. The management features are incredibly intuitive and easy to use, but very flexible in what can be accomplished. Also, the fact that customers are able to view the discounted price after applying the code and leaving the site and then returning is very helpful. The single use coupon feature is great.
The extension works splendidly and fulfills all our needs so far.
We had a little problem with the emails, but they were promptly solved by the outstanding support team - thank you very much, Sergey Safronov and the development team. Turned out to be an issue with accented characters in the email templates that we had translated. Solved by resaving the files in UTF-8 format.
Thanks to the aW team for this outstanding extension and fast support.
Any update on an "Buy at Agreed Price Link"?
This feature is a must have and we have generated sales from it. But we would really like to see a way to offer the customer a way to buy at a lower price without having to lower the actual product price. It seems many people are requesting this, has, or will it be implemented? Thanks!!!!
Defo needs a buy it now at agreed price button
After spending some time trying to find out how the customer can buy the product after he/she has informed the store owner of a competitors price, i realise this is not part of the extension.!
The extension defiantly needs a way to allow the store owner to accept the customer price and then automatically email the customer a (buy now) link allowing them to make the purchase directly at the price match agreed price.
Just one thing missing before I buy it
I had a module just like this, worked just the same way and we found people used it which was great, but managing those price matches was hard. What i would like to see is 2 buttons in the admin section. the 1st you can choose to update the price on the website to the pricematched price and it sends a customer an email to the page saying you can buy it now as the price has been updated, the 2nd button doesnt update the price on the website but creates a voucher code to reduce the price of that item when purchased using the registered email address. Oh and maybe a third to say "sorry no can do" but we could offer you xx price.
I have several aheadworks modules and think they are solid, intuitive and very helpful.
Excellent extension! Works exactly as described and as it should.
Works on Magento 188.8.131.52
I'm always leery of adding new extensions because I'm afraid that it will break something and blow up my entire Magento store that I've spent years developing. Aheadworks does their homework, though. Followed the directions closely and it works perfectly. Thank you.
Works as described. The installation instructions are clear and by following them I was able to have everything, including notification emails, working properly. One thing that would make this better is captcha - right now the price match form is vulnerable to bots.
Does what is expected, read reviews in advance, had an issue with email notifications and contacted supported. Prompt response and turned out to be a simple oversight on my part.
To be able to email a custom link so that the customer can purchase at a lower price AFTER HOURS would certainly be great.
But DURING BUSINESS HOURS, I would love for a way to CHAT with the customer and send the custom price link through CHAT so they can continue shopping immediately!
Added to our roadmap
Thanks everybody for your proposals. We see what you need and we’ve added this feature to our roadmap. It will be implemented in the future updates.
Agree with Drew
I also agree with Drew. Being able to either 1) create a special one time price for the customer or 2) easily email the customer a unique coupon code would be ideal.
I agree with Drew totally!!! Is this something that has been implemented? This is such a huge thing, this would be a huge benefit to our business!
Agree with you Drew. Nice, but could be way better with that functionality. Then it would be a dream come true!
Nice -- but it should allow for a one-time editing of the price of the product such that you can actually match the request. Maybe send the customer a special link through which they can buy. As it is now, we have to edit the product price, tell the customer, let them buy it, then edit it back to what it was.
Either that or even easier: generate a coupon that makes up the difference in price or beats the price between our site and the competitors and sends that single-use coupon to the customer.
