We are constantly looking to expand our retailer affiliate network to give consumers better access to the best prices. We are pleased to welcome eBay on board as a part of our ever-widening universe of sites that want to reach bargain-savvy shoppers.
London, UK, and Boston, Mass. (PRWEB) June 21, 2010
InvisibleHand today announced a strategic collaboration with eBay, the world’s leading online auction and shopping website, that will make new eBay items visible to shoppers using InvisibleHand to find the best prices while shopping online.
The partnership not only gives shoppers the ability to view eBay listings as they shop on their favorite retailers, but also opens up eBay’s sellers’ products to a new potential audience of buyers.
InvisibleHand works in the background while consumers shop, showing a discreet bar at the top of the shopper’s browser that reveals lower prices on competing websites. Prices on new items listed on eBay will now appear as part of the InvisibleHand notifications.
Robin Landy, founder of InvisibleHand, says: “We are constantly looking to expand our retailer affiliate network to give consumers better access to the best prices. We are pleased to welcome eBay on board as a part of our ever-widening universe of sites that want to reach bargain-savvy shoppers.”
Prices revealed by InvisibleHand are real-time, which is critical: research has shown that traditional price-comparison websites offer prices that are outdated, which can cost consumers at the checkout. InvisibleHand also uncovers “hidden” prices that are not shown by some sites for certain items until consumers put the item in their shopping cart. The service, which can be downloaded at http://www.getinvisiblehand.com, has revealed over $92 million in savings since its launch as an add-on in August 2009.
