Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Comparison-Shopping agents, also called shopbots, are Web-based intelligent software applications that can help online shoppers find lower price for commodities or services. Price comparison services were the earliest services provided by a comparison-shopping agent. To search the price of a particular item, a comparison-shopping agent would search multiple online stores based on the keyword the online shopper provides. The keyword could be an ISBN number of a book or something like "iPod." The first widely recognized comparison-shopping agent was BargainFinder developed by then Andersen Consulting and its SmartStore center in 1995 for an experiment. The first commercial shopping agent, called Jango, was produced by Netbot, a Seattle startup company founded by University of Washington professors Oren Etzioni and Daniel S. Weld; Netbot was acquired by the Excite portal in late 1997.show more
