DFF Price Search Engine (PSE)

We consider PSE to be our strongest and most flexible script or tool. See PSE in action here.
PSE is a shopping search engine. The user input parameters into the PSE and the PSE will output the search results.

How to control PSE? (filtering)
PSE is very flexible because you can control the result of the search engine using any of the following criterias:
  1. specific Keyword : Example - Wizard - How to integrate
  2. specific Category : Example - Wizard - How to integrate
  3. specific Store : Example - Wizard - How to integrate
  4. specific Price Range min to max : How to integrate
  5. specific Manufacturer : Example - Wizard - How to integrate
We are showing examples above using PHP, however we also examples using other programming languages we support. See official example site for more language options.

Use Automatic Code Generator
We have a online wizard to help you generate Javascript, PHP and ASP include line code for both PSE and PSE CSS.
  1. PSE Wizard (affiliate login required)
  2. PSE CSS controllable Wizard (affiliate login required)

Manually Generate Paramaters for PSE
For the most flexibility, you should consider reviewing our List of all possible parameters / options for PSE.

How to sort Search Result? (sorting)
Once you have executed a search request into PSE, PSE will return data output in the form of Javascript, HTML, XML or JSON, you can control the order of the search result by specifying the Sort By criteria. Learn how to control PSE order of search result.

How to control Design, Color and Style?
If you are using Javascript output or HTML output via any of the dynamic web scripting language you can control the styling of the search result output in several ways.
  1. The easiest way, but least flexible is using DFF Template. DFF Template was our initial attempt to allow affiliate to set and store template (color, font, background, etc...) into our database and given a particular DFF Template #. This DFF Template # can then be used in the DFF Javascript or Dynamic Languages calling line query string as an optional parameter. The GET query string variable is usually named 'style'. In the GET query string parameter it looks like this ...&style=12345... where 12345 is the DFF Template #.
  2. The second way to control styling is by using DFF's CSS PSE. We have created a different PSE which outputs certain CSS DIVs and SPANs which affiliates can combine or override with their own styling. We also call this PSE CSS our PSE version 2. How to use PSE with CSS compliant output. How do I determine which PSE version I am using?
  3. The third way, using DFFML + JSON, is currently still under construction.

Getting RAW data from PSE
Sometimes no matter how much flexibility we provide to control output and design, they are just never enough to satisfy the pickiest web designer / programmer. If you are that picky, we hope you are willing to take up the challenge of having full control which means you will have direct access to the data via XML and JSON. Having raw data means you will be responsible solely to compose your own page layout and even the navigation and flow of your site. We recommend XML and JSON integration for medium to advance programmers only (or if you know a good programmer).

Still need more customization
If you need a custom search result from our PSE or have special integration needs which are not available from our current solutions offering, DFF developers can perform custom programming for you for a reasonable fee. Contact Us to get a quote.
