Google shopping is a price comparison site that allows you to save money by comparing prices from different shops before you buy. The website is easy to use and straightforward. If you are familiar with Ciao, PriceGrabber, Yahoo Shopping, NextTag, ShopZilla, StreetPrices, Pronto and PriceRunner, then you will know how to use the Google Price Comparison site also known as Google Products.
A price comparison site allows you to find the lowest price among the shops which are being compared. It aggregates results from the top shops such as Amazon, Buy.com, NewEgg and others. You can then go buy what you are looking for by clicking the link to the shop. This is the best way to save money because you will realize that there can be a difference of up to $500 in the price range for a specific product of the same quality and by the same manufacturer. A price comparison site gives you all the information that you need to know when shopping for a product. It shows you the shop rates, product description, shop reviews by other customers, product reviews by other customers, as well as the available brands. If you were using a normal Google or Bing search to look for a product, you would have to search the above mentioned items separately and it would take you some time to gather the information. Instead of wasting hours searching the web and going to each and every shop website, why not go to a one-stop shop where all the information has been prepared for you?
To start window shopping and compare prices from the best shops on the internet, go to Google Shopping at http://www.google.com/shopping
For localized window shopping (Country specific) for example Australia you would go to a URL like http://www.google.com.au/shopping
