THE ONE AND ONLY PATENTED APPLICATION FOR SMART PHONES AND TABLETS.
THIS APPLICATION IS A MOCK UP FOR DEMONSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY.
You can now apply for a patent license and integrate your apps.with our price competition platform, for details go to: http://www.thepricedepot.com
Using our patented technology Buyers can engage local and online Sellers in a unattended, instantaneous, on demand, real time, lowest price or highest discount competition on the products or services they want such as products bearing UPC and QR codes or, new cars, oil change, hair cut, car wash, hotels, attorneys, real estate agents, restaurants, pharmacies, car rentals, auto leasing, loans, tickets, home Insurance, auto insurance, life insurance, boats, ATV's, RV's, apartment rentals, liquor, contractors, and many more.
Using a licensed application integrated with our price competition platform Sellers can set their own pricing parameters and deposit them in our database (Price Setter) e.g. a maximum price, a minimum price, a percentage for how low they want their price to go under the closest competitor and other parameters, this way they do not need to advertise their bottom line price across the board all of the time; using a licensed application integrated with our price competition platform their prices adjust automatically up or down only when and if necessary and only for each specific transaction not permanently, in response to who their competition is and what their prices are at the moment the buyer requests a price quote, a real win-win deal, making applications integrated with our price competition platform the best place for consumers to buy and for Retailers to sell.
Buyers can obtain immediate discounted price results without having to haggle with sales staff.
The prices displayed by Sellers on traditional price comparison shopping apps., websites and marketplaces are linked to those Seller's own independent store websites, meaning that in order to be competitive in a comparison shopping application, website or marketplace their prices will also have to be low on their own store websites; this is is not a good thing for Sellers because many shoppers who do not use comparison shopping and buy their products or services directly from a Seller's independent store website are paying a discounted price even without having to shop around. This way the losers are small business owners who sell with little or no profit, and the winners are buyers who can actually afford to pay more as they do not hunt for bargains but who buy at the discounted prices because the opportunity is there. The real bargain hunters or price conscious shoppers are who get the most benefit using an application integrated with our price competition platform because Sellers who advertise on these applications can afford to set their bottom price competing parameter to beat competitor's prices on the spot.
How can this be done?, by not having to advertise or sell a product at a discounted price on their own store website all of the time and having a larger profit, Sellers advertising on an application integrated with our price competition platform can afford to set their bottom price adjusting parameters to go lower that any competitor who normally advertises a discounted fixed price with little or no profit on their own website.
