How to manage your finances with a price tracker app

Have you ever had that unfortunate situation where you go to buy something, and it has gone up in price? You wouldn’t be alone! PIWoP is a revolutionary price tracker app available either in your browser and/or as an App.

So, what if there was a way you could check the prices of products from your favourite retailers and receive alerts when they were reduced? Now you can with PIWoP, a revolutionary price tracker app available as a browser extension and app.

What is PIWoP?

PIWoP automatically alerts you on price drops of items you want, but not price rises. However, if you have PIWoPed certain items you can easily check their current prices manually by clicking on said items in your "My PIWoPs" lists.

Whether you are interested in cheap appliances or electronic deals, you can monitor sales from companies as wide as John Lewis to Argos. There surely is something for everyone! Not only this but managing your finances has never been easier. Budgeting is a task that can be complicated and confusing, even for the most intelligent people! However, it’s helpful to know that you can get price drop alerts using PIWoP to help you save money on the products you love.

Below are some more important ways in which our price tracker app can help organise your finances.

Manage your budget ahead of special occasions.

It goes without doubt that a good price checker app can help organise and prepare your finances for all of those special occasions - whether that be a special birthday or Valentine's Day. After all, no one wants to blow their cash on a single gift. Instead, why not take advantage of being able to budget for that special someone with PiWoP’s price drop alert tool!

Save time and energy when things go wrong.

If you find yourself in a situation where one of your appliances broke suddenly, you may not have enough time in the day to search for the best deals on a new one. Therefore, you should utilise our price alert service which does all this for you! Without the need to look up the drop of prices in the latest low price TV or low price tablet, you can relax knowing you will be getting the best deals on the market. This means that you will have more time and money to spend on the things you actually - not vacuum cleaners or washing machines.

Get low prices no matter where you are.

Wherever you are in the world, PIWoP allows you to be updated on low price shopping deals. Our app checks the price of your chosen items every 6 hours and alerts you once it's lower than the price you want to pay! That way, you purchase that sofa you have been waiting months for at the click of a button. This enables you to save money in the run up to buying your wishlist.

PIWoP: Shopping Trends to Look Out For

It has been found that 67% of millennials prefer online shopping to browsing stores. It’s becoming increasingly easy to scroll through our phones and add items to our basket, then at the click of a button they’re on their way to our house with next day delivery. However, many still head out into the chaos of the end of season sales in order to get the best shopping deals.


Consumer habits are changing now more than ever. The stats show us that young people are on the lookout for discounted items online, but what about those who still prefer to look at things in person? Lots of people still want to head to the shops, but without the hassle of navigating crowds and piles of sale items. As a result, changes to shopping trends are imminent, so whether you’re a growing business or savvy shopper, here’s what to look out for:


1 – Integrated payment systems

If you’re out and about and find a bargain on your phone but don’t have your purse or wallet to hand, items can often get abandoned; who wants to stand around entering their card details or rummaging around trying to find their card. Integrated payment such as ApplePay and face recognition mean that consumers can get their discounted items online completely hassle free.


2 – Dressing room apps


Some shops now enable you to see your item on a mannequin that you’ve selected as being a similar size to you. So, if you’ve spotted a shopping deal that’s too good to miss but you want to be sure it will look right on you (and you don’t want to risk the no returns policy on a sale item) this could prove very helpful.


3 – Social media


Gone are the days of being over-sceptical about making purchases over social media, it’s now a legitimate place that people look for all kinds of items, from low price TVs to cheap electronics.


4 – Making consumer experience as convenient as possible


Whether that be shop assistants having more specified knowledge on sale items to assist shoppers faster, or businesses adapting their marketing strategy to alert people via an app rather than an email of the latest shopping deal, retailers who keep up with consumer demands and aren’t afraid to adapt to trends are the ones that will succeed.
