How Wikibuy Finds the Best Price in Seconds

You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it again — just because you’re shopping on Amazon, doesn’t mean you’re getting the lowest price. It’s that sentiment that started Wikibuy in the first place. But how exactly does a Chrome extension find the best prices on the Internet when there’s an infinite supply of retailers, listings and discounts?

It’s no small task, but after years of data science, trial and error and partnerships with the world’s largest retailers, it can now be done in seconds.

Instantly finding the most accurate match

Wikibuy doesn’t even begin its search for lower prices until you select the exact color, size or model of the product you’re looking for. You’re not shopping for any old coffee maker, you’re searching for a White Keurig K250 Single Serve Coffee Maker. And that’s just what you’ll get when you shop with Wikibuy, because it searches across thousands of top retailers (like Walmart, Target and Best Buy) to make that happen.

Factoring shipping, taxes and other fees into the final price

Once Wikibuy finds more white Keurig K250’s that match your search, it analyzes the shipping and taxes that Amazon charges and compares that with the fees of other sellers. It even knows how nuances like location or Prime 2-day shipping can effect those costs.

Giving you the lowest price with exclusive offers

Wikibuy takes into account every coupon code available before showing you the lowest price. So if there’s a special gift with purchase or a discount code, Wikibuy will apply it before you even place your order. Plus, outside of the millions of coupon codes across the Internet, Wikibuy also works with its partners to give you exclusive discounts you can’t find anywhere else.

Thanks to Wikibuy’s extensive search, you know that you’re getting the lowest price every time. And it’s all done in a matter of seconds.
