I am sure this is not what WM is for but I just wanted to give it a shot.
Can I use WM to build a price comparison engine? Something like bizrate, pricegrabber etc.

WebMerge generates static web pages from the content of nearly any database, spreadsheet, or affiliate feed. As such, if you have a database that can pull data from these other sites, then WebMerge could generate pages from that just as it could for anything else.
But that's the tricky part: a price comparison site is only as good as its data. A good one will grab data from dozens if not hundreds of sites.
I would think there would be an opportunity here for PriceGrabber to publish an API or frequently-updated feed to help folks add this sort of feature without the massive resources needed to do it well.Richard Gaskin
