Pricepirates

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Greatly improve your eBay shopping experience with this set of helper functions. Pricepirates' multiwindowed, multitabbed interface may scare off some novice users, but operating this program is less complex than the crowded interface first implies. Expect some extra time installing this program. At first launch this application requires an automatic software update to version 4.3. Users who are blocking certain advertising Web sites will find this program removes any HOSTS redirects for mediaplex.com. We found that URL redirects through qksrv.net failed for some testers.

Pricepirates compares items for sale on eBay with exact or similar items at other sites. Operating this application is a breeze, but the interface is very crowded. Some users may feel they're lost in the information. However, there are so many shopping features included that there is sure to be a function you'll find useful. Quick searches through eBay, Amazon, and other installed marketplaces is the cornerstone of this application. Enter a search term and almost immediately your window is filled with links to eBay auctions and Amazon pages. Extensive information for each link is displayed in a spreadsheet-like window. One-click column sorting is instantaneous. You can easily create an auction watch list with e-mail or text message reminders. Comparison of products from the various sites is helpfully displayed in one tabbed window.

While we didn't like the URL redirects this application uses, there are more than enough helpful features in Pricepirates to make it worthwhile. As freeware, there really isn't any reason eBay buyers shouldn't give this a test.

Found a balance between simplifying the interface and keeping most functions for importing old settings from previous versions.

Developer's Description

Pricepirates is a free price comparison tool that searches a worldwide product catalog, including more than 95 percent of the top 300 merchants in the U.S., the majority of the leading merchants in the U.K. and thousands of online stores in Germany and eBay in up to 13 countries for product prices. It generates online and in real time comprehensive lists with prices which can be selected and sorted using a range of criteria. A mouse click opens a new browser window with the corresponding online store or eBay auction page. Users can add auctions to a watch list to follow interesting auctions and the program can remind users of auction ending times via free SMS cellphone messaging. An integrated statistics function can be used to make a detailed graphical analysis of price developments for single and grouped products in online auctions. Pricepirates is optimized for Buyertools Reminder: an interface allows bidding on eBay and even setting up Reminder autobidding tasks straight out of the program. Further features are: smart search options for last-minute bargains on eBay, integrated Web search, adjustable background search with saved parameters, automatic program updates, free support via Web site and e-mail.
