What are the differences in price lists, both in area and by month?
While vendor-specific pricing data is updated nightly, general quote prices are updated monthly. Any price changes or new general quote items are downloaded with the new monthly price lists.
Price lists are area-specific to provide area-specific data, such as sales tax rates, for each zip code.
XactContents's goal is to provide access to everyday prices you would see if you were shopping online via a merchant's website. Please note that temporary price changes that will expire, like sales, are not used.
