New York (PRWEB) August 8, 2006
Shopping online has been simplified by a new search engine that let’s you get the best price by comparing the offerings of online merchants stocking more than one million products.
“The Internet has leveled the shopping playing field, and now consumers can easily get the best products at the lowest price,” says John Spahn the director of the Masternerd.com comparison shopping search engine.
“Comparison shopping search engines make it possible for anyone to go online, find the product of his or her choice, and also find the place where it can be bought least expensively,” explained Spahn.
Unlike conventional search engines such as Yahoo and Google, the comparison shopping engines only contain listings from online merchants. Like their bigger cousins, the comparison shopping search engines start with a simple site search box. You can search through all the products or through a particular category.
Once you find the product you are looking for you can get more details about the product and look at a range of merchants that carry the product. At Masternerd.com the links to the merchants are all on one page and you can easily see the price history of that particular item over the last six months, as well as the consumer rating for each merchant.
“The ratings for the merchants are provided by storeratings.org, and they are based on feedback from satisfied and dissatisfied consumers, so they are quite accurate,” says Spahn. In addition to providing comments from consumers, the merchant ratings let you know who is the most secure, who has the fastest shipping and who has the best customer service.
“We also take the guess work out of buying online by providing a zip code based shipping calculator,” Spahn continued. “After you enter your zip code in the online form, the shipping costs are calculated and you can see exactly how much you are going to pay,” he added.
Further savings are also possible through coupons and rebates that are offered on the masternerd.com website.
“Quite simply, if you are shopping for something online and you want to get the best price from the most reliable merchant, then a comparison shopping search engine should be the first place you look,” Spahn concluded.
