Chapter 21. Online Shopping > Comparison Shopping

Comparison Shopping

One of the more interesting aspects of shopping online is that it’s relatively easy to compare prices on similar items from several different retailers. A few clicks of the mouse are all that’s needed to visit a half-dozen sites to find out which one has the lowest price.

That said, there are numerous sites that offer automated comparison-shopping services. These sites employ special software (called shop bots) that scour the Web, looking for specific manufacturer model numbers. The information gathered by the shop bots is then assembled at the comparison shopping site, and presented for your shopping convenience.
