Note: In case you encounter errors with the monitors you set up by importing the JSON, here is a quick guide to help you debug

Set alerts for delivery parameters

Distill is more than a price tracker app. You can use Distill to monitor product parameters like delivery options and free shipping promotions.

Track qualifying items for same-day delivery.

When scouring the web for holiday shopping deals, from Amazon Prime Day deals to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, you will want to know when an item will be available for same-day delivery.

  • For this example, on amazon, the “fastest delivery” for the item is “November 17-19,” two days after purchase. To monitor the page for same-day delivery offers, select the fastest delivery date.

Track delivery dates of Nintendo switch

  • If you want to be notified of a same-day delivery offer or check if the delivery window suits your schedule, you can set the conditions. For example, “text has Tuesday.”

Tip: Tracking delivery dates with text can be tricky. A common error encountered is that alerts are not triggered until an exact match is found. To overcome this, first, understand the kind of delivery data the website supports. Eg, Dates, Days of the week, Number of days,etc.

Once that is done, set up conditions using generic text match for conditions based on the delivery data format the website supports.

Let’s view how you can track Walmart delivery details and shipping fees.

  • Using the visual selector, select the section of the web page you wish to monitor.

  • To monitor qualifying items for delivery, the section to track is where delivery information is present. You can set up Distill to get alerts in case anything changes.

Track shipping fee and delivery date of nintendo switch on walmart

Track and set alerts for free shipping.

No one likes finding a deal only to be upended by high shipping costs. The ultimate experience comes from snapping up a heavily-discounted item and not paying shipping costs to receive it.

So, when setting alerts that help you snap up the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, you should also check for free shipping offers.

You can use the Distill.io web page monitor to track deals that have free shipping included.

  • To receive alerts for a free shipping offer, set the condition “if text has free.”

The website change tracker will instantly send you an alert whenever the shipping cost on the page is updated and shows “free shipping” or “free delivery”.

What you need to know

You can use Distill to monitor different product parameters, including prices, discount banners, console restocks and more. Distill.io will send you instant alerts if it detects changes in the web page matching your condition (such as a reduction in price, a new discount offer, etc.). Distill is free and has over 400K happy users. We also have affordable subscription plans for frequent monitoring. The advantage is that paid customers can use Distill's mobile apps to get push notifications on their phones when they are on the go.
