San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2005
Spotya!Â (http://www.spotya.com) today announced the launch of its new product comparison shopping portal - Spotya! Shop N' Compare. Through a co-branding agreement with PriceGrabber.com, shoppers can save time and money by using Shop N' Compare to find the product they are looking for at the best price. In addition to product pictures and descriptions, Shop N' Compare provides ratings of both merchants and products. Products can be searched based on many different options, including price range, color, brand and product type. A wide variety of product categories are available, and most popular products are highlighted on each page. Shop N' Compare helps shoppers make the best buying decisions.
PriceGrabber's extensive product comparison features are accessible throughout Spotya's product review channels. Spotya's users will benefit from PriceGrabber's innovative features, including:
- StoreFronts - Using PriceGrabber's StoreFronts service, consumers and small merchants without Websites can list products for sale across the entire PriceGrabber network.
- Shopping List - PriceGrabber's Shopping List feature allows users who are shopping for multiple products, to easily identify the cost impact (including tax and shipping costs) of buying all of the products from a single merchant or making several independent purchases from a variety of stores.
- BottomLinePrice - In addition to listed merchant prices, estimated tax and shipping costs are displayed based on the buyer's zip code for easy best-value comparison.
- Pricing alerts - Buyers can track pricing and availability of any product or category in the PriceGrabber database. The buyer customizes a shopping agent to "watch" a product or category until it reaches a desired price. The agent then notifies the buyer via email, with a link back to the desired product or category on the PriceGrabber site.
- Product & Merchant Reviews - Customers submit their own reviews on products and relate their experiences with PriceGrabber's online merchants.
- Side-By-Side Product Comparisons - Easy-to-view chart of self-selected products for a simple and quick comparison of features to find the product that best fits your interests.
"We were looking for a strong brand to partner with to offer top notch comparative shopping capabilities to our customers," said Sara Lubben, President of Spotya! "The addition of PriceGrabber's online shopping will provide our customers the tools to make purchases that will best suit their needs. Our partnership with PriceGrabber makes the buying process easier for consumers, allowing them to be smarter shoppers and make good purchase decisions."
Spotya! offers a distinctive feature to its online comparison shopping experience - Spotya! QuickCashÂ. Spotya! QuickCash provides short-term loans (without requiring a credit check) for Internet users who wish to shop online, but are short on cash or don't have a credit card. QuickCash customers have the option of loading their funds onto a Spotya! MasterCard, providing the ability to shop online immediately. For good credit, no credit or credit-challenged customers, Spotya!Â is a fun way to buy online.
