What can you use the app for?

Shopping online can be beneficial, but overwhelming for consumers. There are so many sellers to choose from, which means competitive pricing. However all those options are very hard to monitor. Users must page through options when shopping for popular products to discover the best deals. ZingSale helps take much of the footwork out of comparison shopping online. The user can add items they want to buy and ZingSale will show them a list of sellers offering that item online and their current price. The user can set up daily alerts for each item. ZingSale will perform a search multiple times a day and send the user a notification when the price has dropped. This allows consumers to automate the comparison shopping progress so they can easily sort through results and get the best prices on items they want and need.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

ZingSale was founded in October of 2008. Based out of San Francisco, California, ZingSale helps many consumers save money by comparison shopping online. The creators wanted to build a tool that was easy to use and took some of the workload off of the consumer searching for great deals on the internet. The application serves the same purpose, providing a helpful tool that gives shoppers a way to monitor price changes online

What are the differences to other apps?

Many websites offer special deals that can be purchased or a list of available items, but few actually alert the consumer when prices go down. ZingSale helps simplify online shopping by combing the internet for the items the user specifies. Rather than doing all the searching on their own, the user can let the ZingSale system do it for them.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The ZingSale website features a brilliant blue and pink color scheme with vibrant graphics of happy shoppers. Despite being a shopping themed website, ZingSale includes minimal clutter. The user can find the easy navigation tabs across the top of the page to begin searching for items and adding alerts. Everything is readily accessible and the user can quickly learn how to navigate the site and begin using ZingSale.

How does the registration process work?

A new visitor can begin using ZingSale by clicking on the blue “Sign Up Now” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage (just above the pink “Search” button). The registration form will pop up, requesting an email address and password. After submitting the information, the user can begin adding price alerts and searching for products. The next page provides a quick guide for using ZingSale. Users can also close the box out and begin navigating the site.

What does it cost to use the application?

ZingSale is available to all users for free. There are no subscription fee requirements or premium paid memberships. The service is simple and requiring a fee would be counter productive to its purpose: saving consumers’ money. The free price tag works really well for this service. Of course how much the user spends depends entirely on how much they buy after using ZingSale. The user could save a great deal of money or may wind up spending more should they locate deals that they would not find otherwise. Either way, ZingSale offers a valuable service at the best price possible: free.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Bargain shoppers and thrifty individuals who love to look for items online can really get into ZingSale. The site makes it easy to stay on top of price drops as they happen. Users can take advantage of sales they may have otherwise missed if it wasn’t for ZingSale’s price notifications.
