Automatic alerts for deals on Craigslist? Yes, but there is a whole lot more!
Online shoppers are spending more time than ever looking for deals in this troubled economy. Woya.com offers unique services that greatly simplify this often tedious process and takes comparison shopping to a whole new level.
Trying to cross shop comparison sites, online auctions and classified listings is an extremely time-consuming process. These sites have dramatically different ways of arranging and presenting information. However much cross shopping may save you, it will cost you a lot of time. But time is money!
Now there is a solution - Woya.com aggregates millions of deals each week from top comparison sites (e.g. Amazon, CNet, Shopzilla, etc.), auction sites (e.g. eBay, Overstock, etc.) and classified listings (e.g. Craigslist, Oodle, etc.) and presents them to you all in one place. In essence Woya does the cross shopping for you, so you can find the best deals from the broadest range of sources with little effort.
Deal aggregation is only half the story. Each and every deal aggregated by Woya is thoroughly processed using powerful data analysis technologies. Consequently Woya is able to offer various services to help shoppers save time and money in exciting new ways. Here are a few examples.
Fair Market Prices: it tells you what the market believes a product, new or used, is worth given different risk factors (e.g. a seller who is an individual versus a reputable retailer). It is a powerful piece of information to have during price negotiation such as when bidding in an auction.
Detailed Price History: it gives you a sense of where the price was and where it might be in the future. If it so happens that you are looking for deals during a time when the price is above norm, you know that you can wait a few days for a better price.
DealDigger: it completely automates the deal finding process. You simply specify a set of parameters such as maximum price, seller type, and desired condition of the product. When deals matching these parameters appear (Yes, even when on Craigslist!), you will automatically get notified. It is like having a personal shopper working for you 24x7.
Woya.com is in beta and its services currently support over 250,000 consumer electronics and computer products. Expansion to other product categories is planned for the second half of 2009.
