CSE Resources

For online and brick-and-mortar retailers, comparison shopping engines (CSE's) represent a very cost effective way to get your products and brands in front of millions of shoppers.

Today over 40% of in-store and on-line purchases start at a comparison shopping engine making them a compelling and important channel for retailers.

Unlike a general search engine such as Google or Yahoo!, where visitors search for information on a wide variety of topics, comparison shopping engines allow shoppers to research the price and details of specific products. They bring together brand and product information for consumer in easy to view, rate and search format making them very popular with today’s informed consumer.

When a shopper finds an item at a desirable price, the CSE redirects them to the your site where they can make a purchase, learn more about your brand and get directions to your store.
