The startup, prices.com.ng, says its a price comparison website that aids shoppers in making the right decision on what to buy. Prices.com.ng aims at getting buyers different items at the best available price.
It covers appliances/electronics, books, computer items, games, phones and even bulk sms. A scan through their site showed about 270 appliances for the user to compare on. These included microwave ovens (12), refridgerators (152), washing machines (13), Air conditioners (92).
According to the founders new items are being added daily from new merchants who sign up to have their items compared with others by buyers.
Obviously Price.com.ng does not sell the products itself. the user still has to go to the various merchant shops to buy.
So What is the site set to Achieve?
According to information at NairaBrains’ disposal they want to create a place where buyers first go to to get the best information on available prices before going on to buy.
The Income Model
Prices.com.ng seem to be free for buyers who wish to compare prices. We think they may be aiming to get merchants to pay fees to get their items listed on the site. For now the main focus is to get as many items as possible on the site for comparison by buyers.
