One of the main attractions of online shopping is the amazing deals and discounts you can get on them. However, during limited time-period sales, keeping track of all the discounts and prices can be a bit difficult. Chrome browser comes with a number of cool extensions for online shoppers which can save time, money and some amount of internet bandwidth spent on browsing through multiple webpages.
You can find these extensions on the Chrome web store. Just type web store in Chrome and type the name of extension in the search bar at the top of the web store page.
Here are some of the extensions for online shoppers that can come in handy.
Tap n Buy
Developed by Indian company Staqu Technologies, Tap n Buy extension is a time saver for buyers looking for the best possible online deals. So when you are browsing through an online store, the extension will automatically open a small pop-up window on the right side of the page with prices of the same as well as some similar products on other stores. So if you are looking for a product on Flipkart.com, the pop window will show prices of similar products on Snapdeal.com and Amazon.in. Through this, users can compare prices without leaving the store they are on.
Amazon Assistant for Chrome
For users who rely more on Amazon.in and like to use it as a reference point, there is an extension called Amazon Assistant. It shows product matches with their price on their official store. So if you are looking at smartphone on Flipkart, you can see its lowest price on Amazon.in on a horizontal slide at the top of the page with a Learn more button. Tap on it and it will take you to the landing page of the smartphone on Amazon.in. It also shows all lightning deals in a vertical slider on the right side of the page.
While browsing through the web, we often come across photos of people wearing a unique designer shirt or shoes. In case you want to buy them but don’t know which brand to go to, you should try Fashion Lover. This cool extension can find similar looking clothes, shoes or fashion accessories from images on webpages and show the price and store from where you can buy them. To use this, click on the heart icon in the toolbar section of the browser and it will highlight the items into separate boxes. Hold the cursor over the box without clicking and a small pop-up window will show the options right next to it.

It is always wise to go through reviews by other buyers before hitting the checkout button. A lot of the reviews are often made up by the seller, however. This is where this extension can come in handy. It can help users by scanning a product landing page on any online store and then provide a rating on the reliability of the reviews. To take advantage of it, just click on the Fakespot icon at the top right of the page.
If you have been tracking a product for a while but holding off for a better deal or due to shortage of stock, you can use the Shoptagr extension for timely alerts. You can import your entire shopping wish list on Shoptagr by simply clicking on the icon while browsing through a product and it will send an alert on email when there is a price drop, or the product is back in stock again. This can give buyers a better idea of when to eventually buy the product.
