    PriceCheck launches revamped mobile app

    SA‘s leading comparison shopping destination has recently launched a new mobile app that brings the shopping mall to you.

    PriceCheck.co.za have revamped their mobile app, making shopping even more convenient, rewarding, and easier than ever before. The new app, available for download across all platforms, comes with a fully integrated Barcode Scanner that allows one to scan and compare or review products in store. Users can now search through a database of over 30 million products, and by viewing all related products with the new PriceCheck Mobile App, consumers can compare prices wherever they are i.e. at home or in store.

    This App gives customers access to the PriceCheck database of in-depth product ratings and reviews at the push of a button.

    The Mobile App also allows users to:
    “¢ Browse hundreds of categories
    “¢ Rate and review products
    “¢ “˜Favourite‘ products for follow-up at home or in store.
    “¢ Share good pricing or reviews across Social Media instantly

    Simplified navigation as well as an integrated barcode scanner makes it easy to understand why more and more people are moving towards mobile comparison shopping. Google SA‘s statistics show that around 62% of Smartphone users have used their mobile phones to do a product search, with over 26% of users having changed their mind as a result of the information obtained while shopping in-store.

    “œFifty-percent of consumers are spending more than half of their total shopping time researching products online or using their mobile device. Our Mobile site gets in excess 100 000 visit per month. These numbers are growing, and what we‘ve done is make it easy for even our least tech-savvy users to get the maximum benefit from their mobile devices. By keeping it simple and easy to navigate, we‘ve brought comparison shopping to consumers, right in the store. This App works, and it works really well“, says Andre De Wet, CEO of PriceCheck, shedding light on the decision to increase mobile exposure and awareness.

    After recently giving their website a new look focussing on shorter loading times and maximising the information on display when searching, PriceCheck Mobile has enabled customers to compare prices on not only products, but services as well. The new App allows users to search, compare, and even book flights from their mobile phone, further establishing PriceCheck as SA‘s leading price comparison service.

    Download the PriceCheck app from Google Play, iTunes, Samsung App Store and BlackBerry App World.
