A user often gets confused in the sea of online retailers. On Comparethebazaar a consumer can compare prices, select the best deals across product categories, and analyze products and the vendor as well.
The ‘Deals’ model, on Comparethebazaar, is classified into Group-buying deals, Product deals, Travel deals and Fashion deals where we showcase all our products/services by segregating each deal into different cities, which ultimately helps the consumer to track all relevant deals in a given city and hence save time and effort.
