So you love to shop online? But do you know how to be a savvy shopper? Picnic is a free tool that lets you find out more about products you love.
Every online shopper has to get Picnic.
Here is a basic overview:
Picnic is a simple bookmarklet that helps you discover more about products you love. Picnic helps you find the source link of a fashion item or where else you can find or buy a product you like.
Picnic is especially helpful for shoppers who like to comparison shop for the best price or find similar products to the one they love.
Here is what shoppers can use Picnic for:
1. Find Where to Buy A Product
Are you trying to find where to buy a product you have seen online? Or do you sometimes just want to find out a little bit more about a product before you buy it? There is an easy way to find an image. It’s called Picnic. Picnic will help you find where that product is online. Just drag Picnic to your toolbar and anytime you want to find a pin just click “Picnic” in your bookmarks bar. A little button will come up on your picture that says “Find It” click that and it will take you to all of the other places that image appears online.
2. Comparison Shopping
Lets say you are on a website and see a product you love but you are not sure if it is the lowest price. If you are a savvy shopper you should always look to see if the website you are shopping on is in fact the best deal around.
A very easy way to comparison on is to use Picnic. When you are looking at the product you love, just click on Picnic and it will search to see if that product is sold anywhere else for cheaper. All you have to do is go to picnic.dreamuplabs.com and drag the picnic bookmarklet to your browser bar.
3. Get Past Blocked Links on Pinterest
So, you are on Pinterest browsing through your Pins and you find something fantastic. You click through on the Pin and then get to a forbidden or blocked page. To get past a forbidden or blocked link on Pinterest all you have to do is get the bookmarklet Picnic.
Picnic will help you get past the blocked links on Pinterest without getting in trouble on Pinterest. Once you have dragged Picnic to your toolbar, simply go to the pin that was originally blocked click Picnic and click the “Find It” button. This will take you to all of the places that image lives online. Voila! You have found your pin!
4. Find Out of Stock Products
Picnic works great on out of stock products. Just get picnic, search the product on the out of stock page and see if the product is available anywhere else.
5. Find the Original Source of A Product
Sometimes you see a product on Pinterest of Tumblr and you can’t figure out where the heck it came from. Picnic to the rescue! Go to the image of the product, click Picnic and it will tell you where else that product image appears so you can track down where it came from originally. This is a big problem on Pinterest, where many Pinners do not link their pins to the original source image. I often hear pinners complain, “I cannot find my image on Pinterest!” Here is how Picnic works on Pinterest:
Just drag Picnic to your toolbar and anytime you want to find an image or get the original source for an image just click “Picnic” in your bookmarks bar. A little button will come up on your picture that says “Find It” click that and it will take you to all of the other places that image appears online.
