Your local Main Street retailer isn't going to like hearing this but there are an awful lot of items that can be bought at much cheaper prices in other countries rather than at your local shopping complex. And while it may not be particularly good for the local economy, if you spent a bit of time shopping around online you can probably find your item at a better price in a store in a different country. The problem is, do you get hold of your item after you've found it? PriceItBuy takes your online shopping social by connecting you with a network of shoppers all around the world. Find the best price for the item you want by identifying PIB users in that country and get them to inform you when they find the best price. If it sounds good, get your PIBer community member to pick it up and ship it to you.
The fact is, the way we shop is changing at a rapid rate in the 21st Century. It is said that some products can be available in a different country for around half the price of your local retailer. Because of this anomaly, PriceItBuy has created a social community that may well change our buying habits forever. It's an individual to individual community that allows your network friends to identify the product that you want, compare prices and pick it up and ship it to you. PriceItBuy allows you to search for the best prices and users on maps, to follow the products and be informed when the best price for your product is found. Not only can you find the best prices but, in true social network style, you can also follow and communicate with other PIB members and invite your Facebook friends to join up and get involved. When a PIB member (or PIBer) is looking for a specific product or service all they need to do is to take a picture of it, fill in the price and share the information. Then the PIBer is informed of the cheapest price currently available. When the PIBers community and Facebook friends are informed they can help find the best price. The PIBer will then contact them so they can pick it up and ship it.
It's a fact that, in many countries, certain products can be significantly cheaper than in others and PriceItBuy takes advantage of that. In a recent study for example, it was found that computer products in Australa were, on average, 34% more expensive than in the US and one particular Microsoft product was $9,000 (yes that does say thousand) more expensive than its US equivalent. Now I'm not suggesting that your PIBers community are going to shell out nine grand for you but there are many simpler products out there that could save you significant amounts. PriceItBuy is the first social network where you can share and compare prices in real-time and is a great way to allow you to take advantage of the best prices available worldwide and is available for both iOS and Android.
