As a drop-shipper, I frequently rely on PriceBlink to help me find price gaps between stores where I can make a profit. For the last several months, I’ve used PriceBlink without an issue…. Until Today.
Today November 21, Price Blink Is No Longer Working!
Today when looking around on Amazon, I noticed Price Blink wasn’t showing up. “That’s odd,” I thought, “Maybe they are having issues today?” I googled their website and found it, only when I clicked on it, I saw this:
It looks like their domain name expired on the 16th, and they haven’t yet renewed it yet! Incredible! Their website has been down for 5 days!
Of course, we’re coming up on the holidays so I need to list as many items as possible to drop-ship so I can make some serious cash over Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the rest of days leading up until Christmas. This is NOT okay.
“No worries!” I though, “I’ve heard Invisible Hand works just as well.” I activated the Invisible Hand extension and found out…
Invisible Hand Also Not Working
The Invisible Hand extension for Chrome at least shows up on the top of pages, but every comparison link I tried to click on was broken! It turns out that apparently Invisible Hand uses the PriceBlink database and/or API so that ALL of the links are broken! Each of them would take me to the same page you see above showing that Price Blink is broken!
Alternatives to Price Blink and Invisible Hand
So turning to trusty Google, I started looking for alternatives. After downloading and trying out several of them, here are the ones I’ve found that you can work that I see as being good replacements.
Either of these are good options to replace PriceBlink and Invisible Hand. Personally, I opted to use both since their databases are different, so I get different options for each product I view. Being that I want to be thorough and not pass up any opportunities, this works for me.
Do you have another extension that you found works well for you? If so, share it in the comments below!
