Frequently asked questions
Below we list some of our customers’ frequently asked questions.
What is Varusök.se?
Varusök is one of the newest price comparison websites in Sweden. We list different products from different websites and offer our visitors a broad and up-to-date catalog of different items. Our visitors can compare prices and products and find a product that suits their needs the best, with less effort. Varusok.se is part of the international Compare Group, which operates in Finland, The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
What kind of shops are connected to Varusök?
All kinds of webshops have been connected, from large retailers to small shops. We do not connect products and services that we suspect to be unethical. We favor shops that can send us EAN code with their products; the EAN code helps us to direct the data correctly into products. It’s harder to get price comparison or visibility for unique products in our site.
Compare Group has other comparison websites in other countries. Can I list my products on these websites too?
Compare Group has websites in Finland, Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands. Do you ship to these countries also? Is your product feed and webshop available in these languages? Please contact us and we will tell you more!

Clicks and CPC
How does Varusök.se CPC service work?
By adding your products in Varusök, you get visitors on your shop. You pay a CPC price from every click that leads from our website to your website. The CPC prices are fixed per category.
Varusök.se applies a minimal monthly invoice fee of 10 €. This means, that if your advertisement generates leads for an amount less than 10 €, Varusök.se da will send an invoice of 10 €. In case you receive leads worth more than 10 €, we’ll invoice the actual amount. The 10 € will not be invoiced as additional fee.
You can check up-to-date CPC prices for all of our categories in the CPC-pricelist.
What is a click?
A click is an event, that occurs when a visitor clicks a link in Varusök.se within a product and moves to your webshop from that link. We do not charge very click. For example clicks made by bots, Varusök employees and same visitors within certain timeframe will be filtered out.
How many clicks will I get?
The amount of clicks depends on your pricing, category and how many products your shop has. Your shop information and delivery times and prices also have an influence in this.
How can I see the statistics of my shop?
You can see and follow your webshop’s performance and statistics in Compare Group’s own PartnerNet. You will get credentials to the service automatically upon connecting and acceptance of your shop. In the service you can also edit your shop info.
