“Competitors use bots to perform an ‘Add To Cart’ action, then scrape for price. If we drop our price to $1.99, an hour later it could be $1.98 at another site. Then the competitor’s product appears higher in search engine price sorts. Boom—we just lost a sale. Also, those types of queries represent a high computational hit, taxing our backend servers and impacting site performance. Distil has made our lives so much easier.”
