Shopping with a buddy

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

We know that savvy online shoppers are always looking for a deal, but sometimes it can be difficult to get the right service with the right price. A handy update to Shopping Buddy (previously featured on our blog under the name Google Checkout Promo Notifier) brings discounts plus ratings right to your Google Chrome browser. The extension now displays merchant ratings and reviews, so you can find promotions and learn more about a merchant all without leaving the site you’re shopping on.

The seller rating will display as a star with score from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) in the URL bar. To read detailed reviews and see the distribution of ratings, just click on the star.

To get more useful information while shopping online, download Shopping Buddy from the Chrome extensions page and be sure to let us know what you think.
