PriceAdvice Adds Amazon.com Content to Its Used Product Valuation Service

PriceAdvice Advances Its Efforts to Offer Consumers the Most Comprehensive Pricing Information on New and Used Products Sold Online

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - PriceAdvice, the Blue Book for users looking for prices for used consumer products, announced today it has added pricing information by Amazon.com to its powerful price valuation system. Amazon.com customers now have a solution that makes it easier to make the best purchasing decision on any products sold via the world's largest online retailer.

"Online shopping continues to grow with U.S. online retail sales expected to reach $278.9 billion in 2015* mainly due to the popularity of iPads, the current assortment of Android based tablets as well as Amazon's own tablet rumored to be released in the near future," said Ira Williams, president of PriceAdvice. "As online shopping increases in popularity, incorporating data from Amazon.com is the perfect complement to PriceAdvice's unique pricing and valuation system and furthers our goal to help consumers make smart, informed purchasing decisions."

Functioning as an online Blue Book for users looking for prices of virtually any used item, PriceAdvice allows consumers to make informed purchase decisions about used products by providing timely, easy-to-use pricing information. PriceAdvice has developed proprietary data mining and pricing algorithms and combined them with actual transaction data from millions of sales across multiple online marketplaces.

The PriceAdvice system allows consumers to search for items for sale that match a particular product description. The system then provides a range of prices for which the product has sold over the last several months, identifies where to buy the product at best current prices and determines whether the current prices are higher or lower than the fair market value.

The PriceAdvice website is protected by industry-standard security tools including firewalls, virus scanning, and authentication services. No sign-up is necessary. Just log-on and search.
