SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Price Machine™ (www.pricemachine.com), a new comparison shopping site offering tens of millions of products from top merchants launched out of beta today. The site helps price-conscious shoppers make smarter purchases by providing them with unbiased product search results and know-how for finding the best savings. The new shopping site's proprietary Fair Price Curve™ feature lets shoppers know if they are getting a good deal online. "Fair Price" is calculated by studying price history and the behavior of millions of shoppers online who purchase tens of millions of products around the clock.
Unlike other online shopping sites, Price Machine provides unbiased search results because it automatically sorts by price and relevance - not by how much a particular merchant has paid to receive top billing. The technology that powers Price Machine tracks a wealth of information about product prices, including real time price drops from merchants so consumers have the most up-to-date product information in one place.
"Hundreds of millions of people compare prices online before they make a purchase. In fact, we know that shoppers use two to five websites when they are browsing for an item," said Jeff Katz, CEO of Price Machine. "By creating an unbiased website like Price Machine, one where shoppers can always see the fair price, we think that people will feel a lot more confident when they buy online."
Key features of the site include:
- Fair Price Curve™ - Calculates the fair price to purchase any given product based on recent price history and data from real shoppers so that shoppers get a great deal when they decide to buy. If a price is at or below the Fair Price, it's a good time to buy.
- Unbiased Search Results - Sorts results by price and relevance only, not by how much a particular merchant has paid to receive top billing.
- Price History - Helps shoppers get a complete understanding of product price fluctuations over time.
- Tuning Bar™ - Allows shoppers to quickly find the best matches for their interests with high-powered search capabilities.
- Radar™ Price Alerts - Notifies shoppers via email when an item they're looking for becomes available at their preferred price point.
- Xpress Buy™ - Allows shoppers to make purchases more quickly and efficiently with the best price offered that day.
Price Machine is also available as a smartphone application on the Android mobile operating system, which allows consumers to stay informed about price as they shop in brick and mortar stores.
