The e-commerce.

some advanced questions


Recommended Posts



I am currently developing an affiliate based webshop. The main idea is that our product catalog is a mix of our clients ( other webshops ) products. You get the impression that you are about to buy the product at our site, but when the user cliks the "buy" button, we redirect the user to our clients site so they get to buy it there instead. We take a commission for theese services from our clients.


As our project has been developing, we have realised that we have a few problems.


1: Our clients update their webshops daily, when it comes to pricing, pictures etc. I have seen other similar projects, and heard that they use robots to scan all their clients webshops every day, and that the updates are automatically changed at their site. Can someone descirbe what kind of robots / programs we are talking about here ?


2: We also have a problem when it comes to statistics, for instance to see how much commision we have earned from our different clients. Of course, we could have a counter that says how many clicks have been made to the "buy" buttons, but this would not give us a real image of our totale commission. The commission will vary from client to client. Any ideas / tips on how to solve this problem ?


Any answears will be received with great appriciation!


Best regards,
