What is Shopbrain?
Shopbrain is a powerful virtual shopping assistant that helps shoppers find the best price while they shop online. It’s a simple add on to your browser that will activate while you’re shopping and shop around on other sites to find you the best price on products.
What’s that in technical speak?
Shopbrain is an AI-powered, meta-search engine browser extension.
What is a browser extension?
A browser extension is a plug-in, or a small software application, that increases the functionality of a browser. It simply allows a browser to do more things. The most popular browsers are Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Edge.
Are you certified?
Shopbrain is fully certified, approved, and available in the Chrome Extension Store. It’s also manually verified by Google. *(Versions for Firefox, Safari and Explorer are coming soon.)
How does Shopbrain work?
When you are doing your regular shopping online and click on – let’s say a TV on Amazon – Shopbrain activates and starts searching across the entire web for prices of that TV in all other stores. In seconds, you’ll see a small drop-down window with a list of all the prices we’ve found so you’ll know if you’ve found the best deal or if there’s a better price elsewhere.
How do I get that other price?
You simply click on the other store that we’ve found. You never shop on Shopbrain – we just help you find the best price.
When you say “independent and unbiased” what do you mean?
What we show you is simply a list of prices from lowest to highest. No one can influence the results and no retailer can ever pay to appear first.
How do I get Shopbrain?
It takes one click to add this feature to your browser and you’re all set. No software to download, no complicated procedures to figure out, and no passwords to remember.
How do I uninstall it?
Easy – just one click on the icon to uninstall it too.
What about my privacy?
We respect your privacy. You’re in charge of when you receive notifications. We only activate when we search for products and you can easily dismiss the tool with our sleep feature. We don’t keep any of your personal data (unless you agree to it) and never pass your data on to third parties.
Can you really search for every product?
We search billions of products across all online stores to find all the prices of the product you’re looking for. Yep, that’s over a billion products.
What stores can you search?
We search hundreds of thousands of stores, including favorites like Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Home Depot, Best Buy, and Target.
Do you only search for price?
Nope, we also show you a list of all reviews across each store and our own rating that is calculated from all the ratings we’ve found. Reviews are always helpful when making a buying decision so we felt it’s important you have them as well. The more reviews the better.
What does the price history chart show?
We also track the prices of products over time. This helps you see whether something is more expensive than normal or is at a good price relative to the last couple of months. Unfortunately, in times of peak demand, prices seem to go up so the price tracker helps you really understand if it’s a good time to buy or better to wait for a better deal.
How do you do it?
We use the power of artificial intelligence and data mining to search faster than you could ever search manually. When you look at a product online, our powerful engine instantly searches across the web. What used to take hours, now takes seconds. It’s harnessing technology to work for you.
