Times Internet (TIL) has launched a shopping application for Android phones. The new application is basically a mobile version of Indiatimes Shopping website but with certain added functionality.
The app allows users to compare the prices of products listed on Indiatimes Shopping with other websites. All users have to do is use their mobile’s camera to scan the QR code or ISBN code whenever they see a particular product and want to gets its best buy price . The codes, which are mapped to a unique product, are then compared with prices on other e-commerce sites.
Users can also scan the bar codes of the books and shop for them on Indiatimes Shopping. Users can pay for the items either using cash on delivery (COD) mode or net banking or using credit cards.
“Our shopping price comparison feature empowers our customers to choose the best deal from the entire shopping landscape, which is yet another manifestation of Indiatimes’ market-leading approach. We are planning a slew of such user-friendly technology solutions, which will make shopping within the reach of an even wider audience,” said Gautam Sinha, director technology and e-commerce, Times Internet.
