WhatsApp

The price comparison website MySmartPrice is now enabling millions of consumers in India to check out better deals online, even when they have little connectivity. The web service will allow users to utilize WhatsApp, the massively popular cross-platform messenger, to make quick and speedy product price comparison searches.

All that's required is to fire a message to 9332222222 with a query and MySmartPrice will return appropriate results. Replies will contain not only prices but also other specifications and related products found elsewhere. It's certainly a neat way of getting around barriers like data connectivity in India. Also, it works cross-platform too, so long as WhatsApp is installed.

If you prefer to shop offline, would this new service tempt you to do some online comparisons?
