UPDATE: a web version of this service is available here.
I use ASOS.com to do several online shopping. They are one of the best online fashion shops. They have several stores in different parts of the world. Each store might have different price for the same product. Sometimes, you might find up to 50% price difference between different stores. If you, for example, always buy from ASOS UK, then you have to compare the price, for example, with ASOS Germany as you might save a lot.
You can do this buy opening the different store websites for the same product and compare the prices… sometimes you might need to convert the currency to your preferred one. To facilitate this process, I have created an ASOS.com Price Tracker (ASOS.com Price Checker) Telegram bot that can help you do these automatically. Check prices on all ASOS country sites of the same products. You simply copy the product’s link and paste it in the chat and the comparison is done automatically and a summary is provided. It is easy to use and has the following features:
- Price comparison: compares the prices of a product in the different ASOS stores and tells you which store has which size and how much it costs followed by the link to the cheapest store
- Price Tracker/Price Alert: if you want to wait until the price for a given product drops, you also have the possibility to get price alert for the product and get notification as soon as its price changes (drops/increases or the product goes out of stock/comes back to stock)
It is very easy to use. You just send a link to an ASOS product to this bot and the bot responds with content similar to the image above: the price at each store and the available sizes in each store followed by the cheapest store.
If you are on mobile and have the ASOS app, you can just click on the “Share” button, then choose Telegram from the list and share the link to the bot. Before sharing the link to the bot, you should first “Start” using the ASOS Price Tracker bot. By following the link or by searching for @asos_price_tracker_bot on Telegram, you can START conversation with the bot.
If you’re using a web browser, just copy the link of the product and send it to the bot on Telegram web.
If you’re not using Telegram, you can use the web version that does similar things without the price alert feature.
This is a personal project that was intended to help me manage my shopping on ASOS. I benefited from it by getting price drop alerts as well as finding the cheapest store. As some friends found it interesting and are using it, I thought it might also be interesting to others.
Its accompanying website and mobile apps are in beta testing and will be made public soon. In the meantime, enjoy the service on the Telegram bot.
