New Bing Shopping Features Launched
Bing revealed some new features it’s rolling out today for Bing Shopping. These include the ability to refine your searches faster, product-level deals, product page filters and shopping list improvements.
“As the number of available products increase, we want to make sure you’re able to quickly find the information that is most relevant to you,” Bing says on its search blog. “Today the site includes filters on the left side of the page to help narrow down your search results by category, brand and price point. While these filters are great, you have to click through to the results page before you can start using them. To solve this problem, we removed a step and added the refinements directly to the search box. Now you can select as few or as many of the refinements as you want.”
That would look something like this:
“In addition to ‘refining on the fly’, we have also added product-level deals to the site,” Bing says. “Now when you search for products on the site, if a discounted price is available, you will see it next to the listing. To help you find deals, we added a ‘price reduced’ filter under the price refinement allowing you to quickly filter results to only show the products with price reductions.”
To complement that, Bing has added a filter to product pages sorting products by stores. When the user views a product they can find related items.
Bing is also letting users have more than one shopping list, any of which can be shared via Facebook, a la Bing’s previously announced Facebook integrations. If friends comment on Facebook, you can see the comments from Bing.
Additionally, Bing redesigned its browse pages:
