Been doing some intense price spy usage and have a massive list of compared items spanning so large it can't fit much on my screen, and was wondering if there is an easy button to export said data to CSV, or as a spreadsheet file, or anything data wise.

 

Cheers.

I don't think there is, but that sounds like a great idea. I'll pass that suggestion on to the admins.

Thanks!! Would probably be better to export data from a list rather than a comparison thing. Cheers for the quick response.

Highly unlikely to occur - if you could export the prices to .csv you could easily replicate the pricespy website and thus their revenue.

Depends. It is pretty easy to crawl the HTML data to get the same stuff, so being able to export the data wouldn't make it that much easier for someone trying to copy. The data that is really needed to "replicate" the site is the price data – grabbing the data once-off wouldn't help, and doing it frequently would very quickly result in being blocked (via both technical and legal means, I'm guessing) irrespective of the means of obtaining it.
