Faster Response Times

There’s a great new feature on PCBShopper: faster response times! We calculate many PCB prices by querying manufacturers’ websites. But that takes time – and PCBShopper was making you wait too long for results. The problem was only going to get worse as we added more manufacturers.

So now, we send the results to you as we gather them. You’ll see the first prices and shipping times from manufacturers just a second or two after you click “Get Prices”. Then, more will come every couple of seconds until all the manufacturers’ prices have been determined.

The overall time you wait for all the results actually won’t be any shorter than it was before. But it will seem faster. And you won’t have that feeling that nothing’s happening and wonder whether it’s working or not.
