Getting Started in NexTag – Benefits and Set-up

About NexTag

NexTag, “The Search Engine for Shoppers,” is one of the leading comparison shopping engines online today. It was launched in 1999 and was the first retailer to offer “TruePrice Comparison”, a final price that includes tax and shipping. In 2004, NexTag went international and has continued to grow ever since, recently expanding into m-commerce with the addition of a mobile application for the iPhone, BlackBerry, iPad, and Android.

As part of any ecommerce marketing diversification strategy and plan, Nextag offers quality readership and lead potential for the right kinds of industries. A benefit for merchants utilizing the Nextag system is the reseller ratings system, which is free for active merchant members.
