Good News – Bad News of Online Comparison Shopping

italian foodThe good news for online business owners is that 83% of U.S. consumers go online to research electronics, computers, movies, books and music before or instead of buying those items in brick-and-mortar stores.

The bad news is that if you don’t have a low price guarantee, people are likely to spend more time and effort comparing prices, brands, and features than just buying your product or service.

Displaying their Price Match Guarantee seal near the checkout page or below the comparison sheet has been proven to increase conversion rates.
