With our recent giveaways feature landing we promised that more features were on the way and today we're happy to launch our new prices feature across the DBolical Network to help you get the best possible price on your favourite games. Whether you are one of our talented developers who hosts a game profile with us or a reader wanting to get the best possible deal, this feature is for you.
Starting today profiles will display purchase links to online retailers that sell the product. We automatically prioritize the store that offers the best price helping our community find great deals. Developers our system attempts to automatically find stores, but you have complete control over the feature and can add or remove what you want. Here it is in action:
How does it work?
READERS: We know you probably already shop at Steam or Amazon. So instead of launching yet another store, we link to all of your favorites. Just keep your eye out for the buy box on the right menu in profiles, and start purchasing to support us and the developers. We will always attempt to dig up the cheapest price, helping you save $$ in the process. Everyone wins :) We cannot guarantee the prices are 100% correct all of the time, but we do our best to keep them updated in USD.
DEVELOPERS: Our pricing system is, and has already automatically matched a lot of games on our site to retailers. This will continue to happen everyday, it's quite magical really. But sometimes this process might miss your game or lead to some wrong matches. Don't stress - you also have complete control over what is shown.
There is now a new field at the bottom of the edit page for all games, software and hardware (pictured below). Using this field simply edit your store links and leave the rest to us. We will frequently grab the latest prices for all the stores you listed and display it on your profile for your readers to see. Easy.
STOREKEEPERS: To make this feature possible we have worked alongside many great retailers, and plan to add more. If you run a digital distribution store selling games, software or hardware and have an API and affiliate system please reach out. We'd be keen to add you to the list! All prices shown on the site are in USD, we plan on extending this to other currencies in the near future.

Supporting our community
We really hope you get some great prices on games through this feature, you can also feel good knowing that any purchase made helps support our community so we can continue to add great features to make our sites the best they possible can be. Get a great price, support the developers, support us - it's a triple win.
Due to the nature of our system attempting to match our games against store catalog's automatically there is the small possibility that you could encounter a buy link for an incorrect item - if you do notice an incorrect link please contact us and we will fix it promptly. Additionally whilst we will do our best to keep our listed prices as up-to-date and accurate as possible there is always the rare possibility of a discrepancy between a stores price and the advertised price on our site. In the unfortunate event that this does occur DBolical Pty Ltd cannot be held liable for displaying an incorrect/misleading price in the event this occurs.
If you have any inquiries, or perhaps you are a retailer wanting to join our program - please contact us as we'd love to hear from you.
This new feature is also supported on hardware and software profiles as well. There's plenty more to come and we hope this feature serves real purpose for both our readers looking for a bargain on a game, and our developers receiving financial support for their efforts. If you have any questions please feel free to comment below.
