Went to check a price on foxy this morning and found they appear to have changed to a price comparison site.

Can't work out whether I should be concerned or not as they have my personal details on record from previous offers.

Anyone have any knowledge of whst's going on ??

Cheers Shengis, must have passed me by. They sent through an email today advertising the new format and having checked my last order now I realised it was near on a year ago.

I'm sure I've been on them since and it hadn't changed.

I'm not sure I understand correctly exactly what they are now? They obviously still sell their own items but make money from referrals ?
Does this mean the profit margin from referrals is equal or not better than from buying and seling ?

It would appear so for some. Dvd.co.uk started putting up Amazon prices againts items they didn't have for sale a while back too.

Bensons World have gone that way too. It's a bad business to be in, that's why virgin man got well out of it :lol:

Yeah I've noticed DVD.co.uk and the fact they've also started charging postage on a lot of stuff. I tthingk Blah/101 are also charging post now.
As you say Shengs must be a declining business profit wise..

Can't be good for this site either I'm thinking ?

I think this place is safe. The problem with foxy now is that the sites it compares are limited, so you can't gaurantee that you are getting the best deal, so why go there? The same with dvd.co.uk, if they can't provide the goods I need and keep sending me to Amazon for them, then I might as well just shop at Amazon.

The advantage to this place is a) it doesn't limit which retailers are allowed to be listed, even though that means it doesn't make as much money through referals, and b) it offers something to the user beyond just providing prices, so there is a reason to keep coming back.

Yeah , wasn't thinking of it from that angle, more the income from referrals. I don't actually know how it works totally so I'm more thinking out loud as it were.
Would HUKD still benefit from deals for Foxy posted for instance ? That kind of thing.

I'll shut up until I'm more educated , lol

Looks like Foxy still has an affiliate scheme running, so I would imagine so.
