CD-Wow - no comparison

Has anyone else noticed that CD-Wow seem to have disappeared from some of the CD price comparison sites? They seem to still be there for DVDs, but not CDs.

For example, http://www.billybargain.co.ukhttp://www.billybargain.co.uk , http://www.find-cd.co.uk/http://www.find-cd.co.uk/ (still listed as a retailer but never shows a result).

Wonder why? Perhaps because they were virtually always the cheapest of the listed retailers and so there was almost no need for a comparison site? (BangCD has never been listed, and that usually is the cheapest anyway.) How odd. :thinking:

Hi Bristol,

Just noticed this thread in my server logs (I run billybargain.co.uk). There was a problem with the CD-wow data being sent to us (and I'm guessing others as well).
We are investigating at the moment and aim to have cd-wow back in the results soonish. We certainly didn't take them out on purpose - otherwise you'd go elsewhere ;-)

Also - I'll take a look at BangCD.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply, Brett. :)

Very useful site you run - better than having it split across 4 different sites, and easier to navigate than many others (i.e. Kelkoo and DealTime!)

Nice site Billybargain, I hadn't heard of it before. Much nicer looking than find-dvd.co.uk.

One thing though - shouldn't the logo in the top-left of the screen link back to the homepage? There doesn't seem to be any obvious way to return to the homepage other than typing it into the url bar.

Hi Poppy,

Thanks for the feedback (and to you Bristoldeal).

The easiest way back to the homepage is to click on the DVD tab but you're right about the logo image. I'll get a link added at sometime today.

Bristol - I am trying to get bangCD added today for you.

Cheers

Maybe it is just me, but I've found CD-Wow getting more expensive, or competitors getting cheaper - for a batch of DVDs I bought, CDC-Wow wanted £120 whereas I got them for £70 from a single supplier elsewhere (HMV). I really think they are resting on their laurels these days, which is a shame because their back catalogue prices used to be outstanding!

Hi Bristol,

A quick update on the CD-WOW issue. They are looking at their data today so if they fix the problem you will probably see their results work with other price comparison sites as well as the wonderful http://www.billybargain.co.uk

With regards BangCD - unfortuantley they do things in a non-industry standard way with regards their product database so at the moment it is not possible to add them to the results but we will continue to try and find a way round this.

Regards
Brett

No worries - it's taken longer than I'd hoped to get things moving.

Don't know too much about price comparisions but when you order a cd from CD-Wow on Boxing Day (tuesday) and it is delivered to your house 3 days later (Friday) from Hong Kong, I think that is worth a big mention.

On the other hand I am still waiting for WH Smiths in Jersey and one other to fulfil - IN STOCK - items that were ordered before Christmas and nothing recieved yet.

Also Virginmegastore - ordered and delivered in 4 days, but got an email today saying the DVD was being dispatched today, OMG what 2 copies of the same DVD and that was coming from Croydon I think.
