Bing Shopping rolle out a set of features today that will help you make shopping decisions even faster.
Refine Your Searches Faster
The site includes filters on the left side of the page to help narrow down your search results by category, brand and price point. While these filters are great, you’ve to click through to the results page before you can start using them. To solve this problem, the team has removed a step and added the refinements directly to the search box. Now you can select as few or as many of the refinements as you want.
You can see the most important and most common filters directly in the search box. If you wanted to, you could click search and immediately see the results for shoes. When you view the search results, you see that Bing has pre-selected them in the left-rail refinements and also that the number of products to search through is much smaller:
Find Sale Prices
Product-level deals added to the site. Now when you search for products on the site, if a discounted price is available, you’ll see it next to the listing. To help you find deals, the team added a ‘price reduced’ filter under the price refinement allowing you to quickly filter results to only show the products with price reductions.
To help you buy products from your favorite stores, a new filter on the product page sorts products by the stores you know and love. When you view a product, you can also find related items-ranging from accessories to similar products:
Share Your Shopping Lists on Facebook
With the removal of the ‘one list’ limitation, now, you can create a list for the products you are thinking about for your upcoming vacation and another list for the random things you might buy. To help figure out which item to buy, you can share any of your lists with your Facebook friends to get their help in making a decision. Additionally, you can now select a subset of people to share your list with. Instead of broadcasting to your entire network, you can click the lock button and get feedback from a select few.
When you share your list on Facebook and your friends comment, you can see the comments right within Bing
Finally, to help you shop, revamped browse pages make it easier for you to browse products, whether it’s new clothes or back to school supplies.
