Frequently Asked Questions

How can you compare so many products?

Some aspects of our information collection are automated, while other parts require manual work. We have a big team manually collecting information and working hard to make sure you as a consumer get the most relevant information about products, retailers, tests and prices.

Do you sell any products?

No. PriceRunner is simply an information service. We help you find the best products at the lowest price. It is the retailers we link to that sell the products, not PriceRunner. Please check the ratings other customers have given the retailer before you make a purchase.

How are prices updated?

Most prices are automatically updated at least once a day. For a lot of retailers, prices are updated more often than that. However, PriceRunner does not guarantee that prices are correct. It is therefore important that you double-check the price on the retailer's website before completing a purchase to ensure that the price you have seen on PriceRunner is current and correct.

How do you compare the prices for a product?

PriceRunner strives to be able to display all prices available to you. We display prices regardless of whether or not a retailer is a customer of PriceRunner. Retailers are sorted with the lowest price excluding shipping at the top as standard and then in ascending order.

Some retailers may, for technical or resource reasons, miss shipping cost information in our listings. These are then listed in the list with the text "Delivery unknown". You can always check the retailer's site yourself for information on shipping costs.

But there are a number of exceptions that are worth knowing. PriceRunner compares over 1.6 million products from 5,300 retailers and strives to compare as many products as possible. But there are still many products that we have not yet been able to price compare. These products still appear on PriceRunner as they may be products you are looking for. If several retailers sell the same product of this type, they may not be sorted in order with the lowest prices excluding shipping at the top.

How can PriceRunner list so many retailers?

PriceRunner has a technical solution that matches the available products, retailers and prices, for both online retailers and some physical retailers. Some aspects of our data processing are automated, while other parts require manual work.
