Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 08, 2012
As news of the online search giant announces that Google Shopping will no longer be a free service, now one company is forced to raise prices despite trying to offer cheap online shopping.According to Andrew Davis of Search Engine Watch, he says, "this is bad for E-Commerce merchants".
DasCheap! is one company that has been affected by the switch to an all paid model that Google Shopping has adopted to be able to offer discount online shopping deals via there product search engine.
"I hate to put it like this, but Google is acting kind of like a drug dealer. They let you try it free, then get people hooked and dependent upon it, and then you are forced to pay in order to survive as normal, " said David Scarpitta, CEO of Das Cheap Inc.
As of the latest Google announcement, many online stores and professional marketing firms feel like this is a negative move and there is "No Such Thing as a Free Search, " according to Tien Nguyen, of CPC Strategy
"It's a very sad thing. Even here at DasCheap! we had to raise some prices in order to compensate for these costs. As so many web users use Google for accurate and instant shopping information, it has become a second nature to search there so we had no choice but to pay if we want to show our discounted items to the masses, otherwise we wouldn't be able to show our discounted products to online users if we don't pay. Essentially this forces us to raise prices across the board. So in essence, the finger points back to Google for the raise in retail prices. And even more unfortunate for other online retailers that can't afford the extra expense will now loose an important revenue stream, that may put some companies in a bad state," says David Scarpitta
DasCheap is a bargain retailer for discount online shopping. DasCheap features multiple ways to save online shoppers money on all types of everyday products from Electronics, Party Supplies, Costumes, Toys, Home & Outdoor Living Products and supplies alongside online wholesale as well for business to business clients.
David Scarpitta says, "I've always respected Google as a company for the great new technologies that they have implemented over the years, however I feel that there is a certain amount of greed here that will not only affect the grass roots retailer themselves but overall the consumer as well. Despite this grim scenario, we are going to do the best we can for our customers to continue to offer them the lowest prices and the best service in accordance with this new regulation in place. I hope others can do the same."
