How to easily compare prices 28/07/2021 at 16:36 #140802

I am looking to buy a simulation, however when I looked at the product index, there was no price listed and I needed to look at the details to see the price. Is there any way for me to view the prices of all payware simulations at the same time e.g. a spreadsheet or a different store front?

Hat tip to swiftaw for I assume writing up that list manually.

When it comes to comparing the prices of perhaps a few different simulation at the same time - and remember that most if not all payware simulations available nowadays offer a "a try-before-you-buy demo facility" of 15 minutes - my suggestion would be to add the ones you like to the shopping cart, and compare the prices that way. Just remember to remove any simulation(s) from the shopping cart you don't want to purchase at that time (click on the individual minus symbols in the Quantity column) before going ahead with the purchase of any simulation(s) you do want to actually purchase.

Example in the cropped screenshot below, and note the underlined coupon codes if you do go on to making an actual purchase. ;)

The only source of truth for the price list is on the product pages themselves. I have therefore removed most of the posts in this thread as they may contain misleading information - if not today then certainly in the future. The Wiki page will be taken down as well, as having prices in two places will inevitably result in drift eventually. However, I will add a column to the products index page to show the prices at-a-glance.

I did actually request this 10 months ago. Glad user suggestions aren't just being ignored!
