    Pricesearcher is a free and unbiased product search engine. Our mission is to provide access to all the worlds prices in one place. We believe that users should have an unparalleled view from all sources across the internet to discover the products and services that meet their needs.

    Pricesearcher began as a bedroom project before going on to receive funding in December 2016 and is now a seed level startup that has attracted £4.2m in funding to date. We currently employ 20 staff, 12 of which are in tech.

    Why is Pricesearcher different?

    Our major difference is that we show you the complete view of all the products available from all the possible sources. That includes prices from Retailers, Marketplaces, Price Comparision Sites and more.

    How is Pricesearcher unbiased?

    We believe that sellers of all sizes should have a platform to display their products to the world with zero barriers to entry. This is an open platform and unlike others we do not charge any fees to list on Pricesearcher - that's totally unbiased.
