|Use METAPRICESTM to search for compact discs and compare prices at major
online music stores! METAPRICES is a free service for online comparison
you select a title, our spider searches the Web for the most current prices
at several online music stores and presents the results sorted by price
so you can compare
before you shop. Besides being easy to use, our price engine only
compares prices for the specific album you want (instead of swamping you with
prices for irrelevant items like at other comparison shopping sites.)
How to use this site
|Step 1: Search for CD's
||The first step is to search for what you want by typing in an Artist
name or Title of a CD into a search box like the one at the top
of this page. Remember to select a search by Artist or Title
by using the drop down menu. Type in a name or title words and click
on the Go! button to begin the search. The more terms you enter the
better. Search results are returned with the better matches at the
top. If no matches were found, make sure you spelled your terms correctly,
otherwise we probably don't have the CD you are looking for in our database.
|Step 2: Navigate the results
||Search results are presented in tables according to Artist,
Title, Store, or Price. Clicking on a hyperlink
refines your search:
Click on an Artist to get a list of Titles by that
Click on a Title to search the web for the prices on that
Click on a Price to visit an online music store and shop
for the CD.
|Step 3: Compare prices
||When you select a Title, our spider searches the web to find
the current prices for the CD at several online music stores. This
may take up to a minute. The result is a list of online stores and
their prices for that CD.
|Step 4: Shop at a store
||You can visit an online store and view their web page for a CD by clicking
on a Price.
