New to SDE is a dynamic sidebar ‘widget’ that will be used to highlight great deals, keep track of prices of popular products or simply highlight releases that are being most discussed amongst the SDE community.
It occurred to me a few weeks ago when the Pink Floyd Early Years 1965-1972 box set was going up and down in price like a rollercoaster (it still is!), that it would be cool to develop something that was like a ‘price tracker’ and could sit on the homepage to keep you informed. So that’s what we’ve done.
The widget will always display ‘live’ pricing, but as stated in the intro, it’s not just about deals (standard deal alerts will continue, as normal) – the new sidebar widget will be updated regularly to alert you about hot new products and stuff we love, so do keep an eye out (top, left) for what’s on display!
For simplicity, for the time being, all prices will be displayed in pounds, but when you link through (to Amazon, JPC or HMV) prices may be in either pounds, Euros, US dollars or Canadian dollars depending on where the store is. I’d welcome any feedback for future improvements. Thanks.
