This is the era of online e-commerce websites. People got used to buy various products online from home using laptops. But a comparison with an intelligent approach before shopping is always necessary for saving few coins. Let me explain in detail.
Basically product’s price differs from seller to seller. Many e-commerce websites sell different products. But for a same product, price differs marginally between portal to portal. For same product, cost varies during different timings of a same day. So a price-comparison while shopping is always useful to get lowest-price product from an online e-commerce portal.
Manually tracking product price is almost impossible as there are 30+ rated e-commerce sites available online. So it is very much necessary to find quick and automatic method so that one can catch the best deals from top online e-commerce websites like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal etc.
I’ll discus about some useful chrome extensions for saving money which will not only compare product prices but also add money-saving components to your cart magically.
