Our aim has been to provide the best variety and coverage of stores, so there are retailers which have been included essentially for free, because we felt that they enhanced the end-user shopping experience and options.
(PRWeb UK) February 19, 2010
Hundreds of high street shops and online stores have been integrated so far on SuperStoreSearch.com since it launched its public beta website.
More than 11 million products have already been put on the company’s database since its soft launch.
Joe Nade, Director of the UK-based company, said several years of hard work had gone into getting http://www.superstoresearch.com up and running.
He said: “In the short time of going live with the beta, we have seen rapid growth with the number of merchants we list."
“We have made significant efforts to maintain an impartial service. We do not sell anything directly ourselves but help users find the best deals from UK retailers. We list multiple retailers per product where possible, and we do not always require a commercial relationship in order for a store to be listed in the search engine database."
“Our aim has been to provide the best variety and coverage of stores, so there are retailers which have been included essentially for free, because we felt that they enhanced the
end-user shopping experience and options.”
Among retail giants who are listed on http://www.superstoresearch.com are Amazon.co.uk, John Lewis, Comet and the DSGi group (PC World, Currys and Dixons), although SuperStoreSearch.com also includes smaller e-commerce stores to give customers more options.
In contrast to many other shopping search engines and price comparison sites, SuperStoreSearch.com provides an independent service and has its own price engine platform. The company does not use an API and does not “mirror” content from similar shopping search engines through affiliate schemes.
The team at Shipley-based SuperStoreSearch.com have overcome countless obstacles and challenges to get the site up and running. They are now refining its public beta site and ironing out any glitches before a full launch.
Joe added that the site is also based on a clutter-free design with minimal advertising.
He said: “We are not against ads altogether, except that we would be very selective and would require relevancy if we decided to serve such.
“Our aim is to provide the best possible choice for our users and to help them find the best deals on products.”
