    Thumbs up Price Comparison Script

    Hello Codingforums community,

    Im founder of China-Devices.com a forum about chinese smartphones and we have a pretty big community, alot of new members and good traffic.

    The forum is running on IPB 4 and works fine. But we want to create something new. A all-in-one platform for product guidance and also price comparison.

    We are looking to integrate the forum in a portal all along with a price comparison script like : Cheap smartphone price comparison at http://www.kimovil.com/en/

    We know it will be alot of effort. But we also know it will be worth it, since the community grows fast and also our youtube channel grows extremly fast.

    Are there any people having experience with those things ? Maybe even tried to code something like this before ?

    We are looking for good coders and new ideas on how to do it.

    Thank you.

    I'm not sure what kind of scale/budget you had in mind but, you could check out some different Product comparison packages that are already out there. Such as:

    Comparison

    Either way, those would most likely be much cheaper than hiring a developer to do this from scratch for you. I do assume you came here with the intent of hiring a developer as opposed to just trying to convince a developer to join your team for free.

    Hi there,

    Yes we now it will be expensive. But we are already in discussion about funding. We also have a big youtube channel with 155.000 Subscribers and alot of views, so we think about this as an investment.

    I already checked out some scripts, but they are absolutely not what im looking for. The website should be regarding the price comparison like geizhals.eu and the portal should be like XDA, while the integrated forum still based on IPB (probably subdomain, folder).

    New products on geizhals get into the system still manually with csv exports from shops so far as i know. they got a team which lists all the products. We know with a crawler we wouldnt be able to get the same good filtering structure since all those shops are based on different scripts / layouts etc. But we are working on a team and maybe outsourcing the work on implementing new products.

    So we dont know if its cheaper to mod a script or start completely over.
