Last year, WhatsApp messages overtook the number of SMS sent per day. Currently, WhatsApp has over 50 million active users in India and it is the most popular IM service used in the country. It seems like a big leap forward to reach target consumers instantly. Today, MySmartPrice.com took the price comparison to another level by leveraging the popularity of WhatsApp. They have launched a new feature which lets users check the lowest price for any electronic product quickly through WhatsApp. This way of checking product prices is not only quick but also quite simple.
Now consumers can easily fetch the lowest prices for mobiles (and other electronic devices) by simply sending the name of the product, that they are interested in, to +91 9332 222 222. They will then receive an instant response with its lowest price and a link to the enquired product offered by various e-commerce sites like Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal. The replies are not only speedy but also well explanatory with product specifications and related products for better analysis.
“Today, more than 10 million users across India use MySmartPrice on a monthly basis to make shopping decisions quickly and easily,” said Sulakshan Kumar, co-founder of MySmartPrice. “Considering the growing popularity of WhatsApp in India and world over, I am certain that this new feature will become a success and facilitate people in making right choices.”
MySmartPrice focuses on the motto,“making shopping smart byte by byte” and with this latest feature, they are turning their motive into a reality.
This feature is quite useful to users who have limited access to Internet or if their data connection is very slow. This feature can be particularly useful when users are out in the market (offline stores) for shopping and they want to quickly check the online price for a particular product which will help them in bargaining with the merchant intelligently.
