With online shopping being all the rage nowadays, shoppers can get good deals and great variety from buying online. Prices are usually cheaper than shopping at brick-and-mortar shops, in part because online sellers don’t have to pay sky-high rents. But as online sites proliferate, the complexity of comparing prices across the various sites has also increased.
Enter price comparison websites. This concept has been popular in various forms, most recently in the travel domain, with www.trivago.sg and www.skyscanner.com.sg scanning the web so you get the best prices for hotel and flight bookings. Even the Government has been getting on with it, having recently introduced www.comparefirst.sg to help consumers compare insurance products. The main goal is to reduce complexity, by putting all prices in a simple, easy-to-read format.
An example of a product price comparison page on pingNshop.com. Comparing prices between Amazon, Qoo10, Lazada and Rakuten.
This is why we set up www.pingNshop.com. For a start, we compared prices of a curated catalogue of products sold on Amazon.com, Lazada.sg, Rakuten.com.sg, and Qoo10.sg. We did the work so you get the best prices.
From our experience, price differences for the same product or service can be significant. Up to 35% at times. So always keep a lookout for the best deal!
But wait, pingNshop.com is also more than a price comparison site only. We also pride ourselves as a product discovery website. Look for anything you want to search using our search engine, and see all products on offer at each of the marketplaces at one glance. Be surprised at what you can find!
