E-Commerce Times Talkback
See Full Story
Hoping to prevent customers from straying, and perhaps laying the groundwork for an
e-tailer browser war, Half.com launched a price-comparison shopping feature Tuesday that
alerts shoppers who click into a competitor's inventory that the item they're looking for
is available back at Half.com.
After shoppers download the "Price Patrol" program from Half.com, they receive an alert
when they click on a product detail page on another merchant's site. Clicking on the
pop-up alert takes shoppers to the same item on Half.com in a new browser window.
Software Developers, we need you to make a
java script to stop this unfair behavior
