Shoptagr is Hukkster’s Newest Competitor

The platform went live today.

Price-tracking site Hukkster has competition from Shoptagr.com.

Shoppers download the Shoptagr widget to their browsers. As they shop online, they can click on the Shoptagr widget, which has a tag option, to save for tracking of future sales. The widget also allows users to organize wish lists into categories, such as work and going out.

According to Shoptagr, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based firm, it has built its crawling engine in-house and doesn’t rely on third-party crawling, which results in faster loading time. It also allows for greater personalization, such as preferred color and size. Users can get word of alerts via e-mail, text message and push notification.

The Shoptagr platform supports retailers such as Asos, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Shopbop, Topshop and Zalando. The platform has been in beta testing since December, and went live with its free browser extension today.

Shoptagr received pre-seed stage funding from Wadi Ventures in January. Wadi, which focuses its investments in the Internet space, is a new Europe-backed micro-seed venture capital firm based in Israel.
