How Árukereső.hu works for online stores

  • You upload the store offer via CSV or XML in the Árukereső specification.
  • You pay for a click on the online store page. Cost-per-click varies by category. To activate, it is necessary to top up a credit of at least HUF 10,000.
  • After successful registration, you can join the Verified by Customers program (Megbízható bolt). As part of this program, Árukereső automatically sends questionnaires to your customers. If you receive 10 reviews in 60 days with a rating of at least 4.2, you will receive a transparent badge, which you will place on your site. If you get 60 reviews in 60 days with a minimum rating of 4.6, you get a green badge.
  • If your store has the Megbízható bolt badge, you can take part in the Hungarian version of the Shop of the Year event. If your store wins in one of the categories, it will receive a badge, which will be displayed, for example, directly on the product card.
  • Online stores can also receive a Quality shop award (Termék kiemelése).
  • Árukereső is a Google CSS partner. You can also use the services of the engine for cheaper advertising in the Hungarian Google.

What you must not forget

  • use a .hu domain
  • Hungarians have little trust in the untranslated shops – spend enough time translating into Hungarian
  • use the correct HUF currency in the feed – this common mistake creates inconsistencies in prices and turnover
