With barcode scanning for shopping being very popular in US and Europe, Scandid aims to bring the concept to India helping shoppers by empowering them with a tool that can help them get the best deal no matter where they choose to shop – online or offline.

While shopping in the conventional brick and mortar retail stores, it is a common practice in the western countries to check up the price of a product online on their phones, using a simple barcode scanner app. Now, that is possible for the people in India too.

So if you are shopping at an offline electronics store next time, you can easily compare the prices from that store to the prices available on hundreds of online sites to see if you are getting the best price or if it is wise for shopper to order online.

Just the thing you need when shopping for Diwali

Scandid is the first app in India whereby users can scan the barcode present on the product box or search by product name and instantly get prices and coupons for millions of products across 150+ online retailers.

Having the ability to compare prices on the go allows shoppers to make effective purchase decisions quickly.

This new app is like a "Google of the online market". Indeed a very good idea created by Shopping Wish.
