Price Comparison Website Scripts

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm a complete newbie to this forum (as you can probably see from my post count), but was wondering if you could advice me in some way.

Basically, I have just started up a website ([url=http://www.jbhhockey.co.uk]http://www.jbhhockey.co.uk[/url]) that aims to provide a price comparison for various field hockey sticks in the UK.  The site is currently run on PHP5 and MySQL5.  I was thinking that I would ask retailers to supply me with a CSV file of all their hockey sticks, which would be hosted on their website, and then create a php script or robot of some sort that would scan these files for any changes in price every month/week.  So when they change the price of a stick, they update their CSV file, and it would automatically be reproduced on my website.

Firstly, is this the best way of doing it (I'm guessing probably not)?  Also, do you know what the major price comparison sites do (eg. kelkoo, dealtime, pricerunner etc)?  And lastly, do you think that what I outlined above would actually work?

Regards,
