To help you make more informed shopping decisions, we are unveiling a brand new experience in Bing shopping.
First off, the new homepage brings together popular items and content so you can spend less time searching and more time shopping.
Popular articles and categories are arranged next to top searches, popular products, and leading brands so you can research and browse items before making a decision. We also added the ability to connect your Facebook account to Bing shopping, so you can be instantly reminded of upcoming birthdays while you shop.
With the addition of top shopping articles, you can easily find relevant information whether it’s Top Swimwear Trends, or Mother’s Day Keepsake Gifts. Each week, we are add new articles based on what you’re looking for and what’s relevant for the season.
We also made changes to the results page. Now when you search for a product, you will see larger images at the top of the screen. The refinements on the left hand side of the page also received improvements. Now you can insert your own price match in the left rail. If you’re looking for inspiration, we also display similar searches that others are doing.
So you can quickly find out information about a product, we have added the ability to hover over an item to see more about it, including average reviews and its top attributes.
While you are shopping, we made it easy to add a product to your shopping list. You can share your shopping list on Facebook to get feedback from your friends or compare with other products on your “wish” list.
After you find the product you are looking for, you can view the merchants that sell the product, specifications, and customer reviews. We also added a filmstrip on the page with the original search results, so you can scan and compare products.
We hope you like the updates to the Bing Shopping experience. If you have any feedback on the changes we’ve made, please let us know. We are working on several new features, so stay tuned for more updates from the team.
