I am a web developer that has created a price comparison plugin for WordPress based sites and wondering if there is a market for similar in the Magento World?
There are two different extensions I am considering creating:
1. Allow price comparisons of a Magento store owner\\\’s products against other stores via some form of online / widget type thing so customer\\\’s can be confident they are getting the best price.
2. Allow site owner\\\’s (affiliate marketers) to create a store that contains ONLY products that are available at multiple merchants and instead of add to cart buttons these would simply deeplink to third party web sites where if a customer bought an item you would get commission. Magento would simply be functioning as a price comparison store with no actual products being sold but all the useful Magento features would be available to customise these \\\’virtual\\\’ products available elsewhere.
I can give some further examples etc on this thread if people are interested but I am just testing the water a little first.
