CloudShopper is a very useful comparison shopping extension for Google Chrome. It searches through around 25,000 stores over the web to find the lowest rates for a product, as you try to purchase it from your favorite online shopping sites.
Other than Chrome, the extension also works with other major browsers like:
- Internet Explorer
The company was founded by Ulises I. Orozco. Josue Rodriguez, Peter Martinez and Dante Elrik in 2011. It was launched on 15th August, 2011 to help online buyers come across and share fabulous products and also save money in purchasing them.
Its main features include:
Finding lowest rates
It displays the lowest rates and latest deals from hundreds of shopping sites. Once you install the CloudShopper button onto your browser, you can get informed about the latest deals with only a single click. Although the research is not well-polished, the information is quite accurate and neatly displayed.
Compatibility with major shopping stores
It works with most online stores, including major ones like:
- Best Buy
Collection and notification
The plugin helps you collect your favorite products. As they go on sale, you are automatically notified in the form of alerts. Through the extension, you may also ask your friends about their opinion about a product before you actually buy it.
Ease of use
The plugin has a clean interface and lets you use it easily. Non obtrusive, it waits in the background and pops up only as you search for a specific product over the web with an intention to buy it. There are some reports, though, that it is not really helpful in showing comparative results for Amazon.co.uk.
It is a freeware and comes at no cost for its users.
The extension can be downloaded from its official website. The add-on gets installed quietly and does not need you to restart your web browser. Chrome users can get it from the web store. For any suggestions and feedback you can always head over to the CloudShopped Forum Thread.
