Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
The rebates browser add-on development experts at Besttoolbars have revealed the results of their latest study. The firm has been investigating if rebates companies can make more from their plugins by analyzing user behavior patterns and assessing data from client projects. Its most recent findings show that rebates companies are able to increase their revenue simply by adding a price comparison feature to their browser add-ons.
The rebates browser add-on development team at Besttoolbars reached this conclusion after careful consideration of the online shopping process. They theorized that when a user shops online with a rebates add-on already installed on their PC, the user goes to their preferred merchants website, views product categories and then individual product pages. When the user opens a products page, the plug-in detects that a product has been viewed and shows similar products to the user, available from other shops at lower prices.
With a price comparison feature, it is possible to highlight the products that are offered by affiliate merchants with a rebates option. The benefit for the user is that they save money, while for the rebates company, users are motivated to shop through the rebates affiliate partners, thereby generating more revenue.
Valery Kuznetsov, Key Projects Manager at Besttoolbars said, We had suspected that there were additional ways for rebates companies to monetize their browser add-ons and through a series of experiments and test runs, we reached the conclusion that a price comparison feature was simple yet effective. It is very easy to add price comparison functionality when developing the add-on originally and once created, it will proactively generate extra funds for the rebates company for as long as the user is actively using the add-on. The comparison functionality adds an extra layer of usefulness for the shopper so it can also be said that as well as making money, this addition will actually improve the user experience.
The findings of this study are just one in a flurry of recent breakthroughs that the Besttoolbars team has made in this area. They also recently discovered that many online rebates companies were also losing revenue by not blocking out other third party add-ons.
