With the help of the Hintaseuranta extension, you can display your online store's products on the Hintaseuranta website.

Hintaseuranta is a price comparison service that enables shoppers to browse products from multiple stores at a time, as well as to compare product prices and properties.

If you're interested in using the service, see Hintaseuranta's information for merchants.

Extensions are not available in MyCashflow Free plan.


Using the service is subject to fees. Request an offer from Hintaseuranta's sales department .

Basic principles

MyCashflow's Hintaseuranta extension generates a feed file for each store version which contains all the product details that are required by Hintaseuranta. Feed files cannot be edited, and they always contain the same kind of details for each product.

Hintaseuranta is then provided with the address of the desired feed file in the online store and reads the file at regular intervals. This means that all the changes you make to your products will automatically be updated in Hintaseuranta.

To be able to display your online store's products in the Hintaseuranta service, first you need to complete a service agreement with Hintaseuranta. For more information about the agreement, see Hintaseuranta's merchant information.
