    Hello BHW,

    I was planning to build a price comparison website for Chinese webshops and share the results. My first question is; does anyone has experience with these kind of websites?
    The idea was to build the website using WordPress with plugins like the ones on sale on Themeforest.
    I have close to none programming experience so this is going to be a big challenge!
    Is there any software like that out on the web for free? maybe arghh.. arghh if you know what I mean...

    Honestly, if you don't have a budget, learn to program. Get some PHP/MySQL skills. They will help you immensely and you won't be held hostage by external developers and/or money.

    Build the site, learn and in time profit! If things don't work out you can switch your dayjob and program for a living, get even better, build something else and then profit :)

    Good luck!

    This depends on methods where you want to get offers for comparison.

    We can offer you some easy themes and plugins for this. but, currently we added only aliexpress to parsers. What affiliate systems are popular in China? Do they provide xml feeds or product API? Or maybe they have web shops with partnership. Give me more details, please.

    Thanks, I think I am going to change plans for now.. Create a much easier website and skip the comparison part (for now.)

    I was planning to use websites that sell chinese product in the US/Europe. Websites like Banggood and DX

    Banggood is also supported by our plugin. DX - do you mean dx(.)com?
