It doesn't have to be like that. It would be - getting alerts only for a particular product that you have subscribed for. I know @seafish who has developed such a brilliant tool can do it. May be there is some reason or other complexity like managing and verifying emails.

I know the developer @seafish knows more than us. But for your information, you can refer camel camelcamel for Amazon.

hey @seafish , is it possible to add some kind of filter to the Walmart trending products to show only what's in stock at "XXXX store" ?
Appreciate the effort as always

Hello @seafish your website has been so useful! Was wondering if its possible to see what stores have the lowest price when a range is given. For example if a bbq is on sale for $250-600, can you sort by the stores which have it in stock for $250? Thank you

You can click on the header Price to have it ascending or descending.

hey @seafish , I am curious. When you use that link, it show "store price 14.98" but this price is nowhere to be found in any store or even online. Do you know at which store it refer?

Thanks !

Hmm it was probably available at some point for this price, but now HomeDepot doesn't give any information for that store.

There was similar issue with BestBuy which I just fixed. It was showing that some product (like PS5) is available at some stores, but in fact it was available some days ago and now BestBuy stopped giving this information. I'm showing an icon that there's historic data availble, but current information is unknown. Will need to do similar to HomeDepot I guess.

What's with the CAPTCHA requirement on stocktrack? I'm on the same home IP and suddenly every time I click on a stocktrack link it asks for CAPTCHA.

Are you behind some VPN with non-Canadian IP address?
I'm never behind a VPN on my tablet always the same Canadian IP address and I get a few from time to time but never on my laptop, weird.

I use Opera on my tablet so I guess it doesn't depend on the browser.

If you PM me your IP I can try to check logs and see what could trigger captcha.

Couple of weeks ago I had to tweak some settings on cloudflare as there was a surge of bots from US/BVI/Netherlads IPs

@seafish , did you upload the code to GitHub or in some other public repo? If not, is it because you are worried the developers will start taking counter measures against stocktrack?
