Find The Best Photography Deals With ePHOTOzine's New Price Tracking System: Best Photography Deals

 

The ePHOTOzine team are excited to announce that we've launched a new Price Tracking system that we believe photographers will find incredibly useful.

With the new Price Tracking system, you can find the best price drops on equipment, see daily photography deals and receive email alerts when a product you're wanting to purchase reaches your ideal price on Amazon UK (you can find it under the shop tab in the menu). 

Price Tracking system at a glance:

  • Find the best price drops
  • Browse the best deals on photography equipment
  • Track prices via email alerts

The 'top photography price drops', which are compared to yesterday's Amazon UK price, can be found on our 'Best Photography Deals' page along with products where today's price is lower than the 90-day average.

Prices are collected in the early hours of the morning and the deals page is refreshed daily at 7am*.

Commenting on the new Price Tracking system, ePHOTOzine's Managing Director, Tracey Jennings said: "Upgrading the site and providing innovative tools our members can use while they peruse ePHOTOzine are two key factors we are always focused on.

Our Web Developer, Rick, has worked incredibly hard to bring the Price Tracking system into fruition and the whole team are very excited to see the site upgrade now live. We believe it's an incredibly useful tool that will make it easier for ePHOTOzine members to save money when purchasing equipment."

 

Sign Up For Price Drop Alerts 

As mentioned, as well as getting up-to-date information on deals, you can sign-up to our new price drop alert emails. By doing so, you can select an ideal price you'd like a specific lens, camera or accessory to reach and when it does, we'll send you an email alert so you don't miss out. 

The easiest way to do this is to find the product you'd like to receive alerts about in our review section, and click the 'price tracking' button found at the top of the page. This will take you to the 'buy now' section of the review where there's a simple drop-down you can use to select your ideal goal price and then all you have to do is click 'submit'.

You'll also see a chart that's tracked the price of that specific product for the last 90-days as well as the highest and lowest prices.

Does this system indicate prices other than Amazon's? If not it ought to be made clear that it is advertising, paid for i assume, and not put in the news section.

Alan, this new system (yes, currently Amazon only until other retailers sign up to the scheme) is not 'paid for' as you suggest. It has been developed for months in-house for the benefit of the site and members alike. So we are proud of it and are therefore shouting about it.

Furthermore, as an aside, I'd like to add that without so-called 'advertising' that some members like to complain about, there would be no site.

Hope that helps clear any confusion.

Look at the cost of Fuji X- mount lenses.... they seem to have slipped in a whopping 15% rise on some.
On top of last years steep hike.
100-400mm is now 1800!
If this level of yearly increase continues, the moniker 'the new Leica' will be apt!

Pity my salary not goin up at the same rate Wink

Tracey, I for one, have no objection to advertising per se, I do however object when the boundaries between advertising (or sponsorship) and news/features become fluid or blurred, as they often do. Can I assume that if I click on one of the price buttons below nearly every product review (and the new price comparison feature) that takes me to A mazon (always?) that the button is not either paid for by A mazon or EPZ doesn't get a referral fee if I were to buy the product? If EPZ is not getting some sort of fee then why aren't there buttons to some of the better UK retailers i.e SRS, WEX, Jessops, Park etc, etc ?
If EPZ is getting some sort of fee/commission/percentage, call it what you will, from A mazon and advertising is such a good thing (which I'm not disputing) then why is it not made clear that the links/buttons are not necessarily taking one to the best or cheapest retailer and are in fact a form of advertising/sponsorship?

PS. Funny isn't it, I can't even type A mazon correctly without EPZ making it into a link.GrinGrinGrin. It didn't happen when I typed the other retailers.GrinGrinGrin

I was thinking of doing a post on EPZ about a famous river in South America, but have changed my mind 'cos I don't want to give someone free advertising.

Hi Alan, yes, we receive a commercial benefit by partnering with Amazon which helps fund the site. Other retailers have the option to join the scheme, so we are not restricting it to Amazon exclusively. Of course, everyone has a right to shop wherever they like - we are simply offering an option with Amazon. Look, buy or ignore - the choice is yours.

Hi Tracey, I've absolutely no objection to that, what I object to is the lack of clarity on some of the buttons/links. If the "Best Buy" links direct you to a commercial partner then it should be made clear i.e. "Amazon Best Buy" or something similar. That way there is clarity and very little, if any, grounds for misunderstanding or misrepresentation.
If just been looking at the article on the top ten cameras used in the EPZ gallery and the buttons under those cameras are quite clear and unambiguous "Buy from Amazon", Why can't all the links and buttons be so clear?
