Smarter.com has announced the Beta launch of its free shopping service via SMS (Short Messaging Service). Smarter.com returns the lowest price found for a specific product amongst hundreds of merchants. “Our goal is to facilitate transactions between consumers and our merchant partners, and that goal is closer to reality now that we can help our merchant partners tap into the offline world,” said Talmadge O’Neill, Vice-President of Business Development.
Consumers can access the free Smarter SMS service by text messaging product names or SKUs (commonly known as manufacturer part numbers) to (610) SMARTER or (610) 762-7837. Consumers are free to search using generic keywords like ‘mini ipods’ or ‘dell dimension’, but are recommended to be as specific as possible, using the SKU number for best results.
