Sniffie availability analytics gives you information on product availability. Please note that using the analytics requires you to have sniffed the availability information for each product and/or store you want.

How it works

When you define availability column in your data extractions, Sniffie will automatically process that products' availability to a good correct format. The availability is saved both in text as well as automatically converted to a numeric format. You can get the processed availability information out of your Sniffie database via Sniffie’s product feed.

Sniffie tries to convert qualitative information to quantitative by itself. This works the best should the availability be notified as a distinct quantity (e.g. “15 items in stock”). Otherwise, results may vary. Please note that Sniffie will currently not offer the ability for the user to translate qualitative availability to quantitative information. This will be offered in the future and will affect all availabilities retroactively.

The overview of the availability page offers you the following:

  1. Product information

  2. The latest availability (in any store). Note: Hovering over the cell displays the original availability text that was sniffed from the site.

  3. Number of distinct physical stores in the website offering the product. If dynamic stores are not used in the data extraction, this number will be 1.

  4. Total availability of that product across all distinct stores.
