mySimon Comparison Shopping Agent Searches 1,200 Sites

Santa Clara, CA-based mySimon Inc., an Internet e-commerce hub that is focused on online comparison shopping, said its shopping bot now searches more than 1,200 merchant sites.

New product categories include Furbys and Cigars & Accessories. New Web merchants include auction sites eBay and OnSale, and ProFlowers, Buy.com, 800.com, Snowboardshop.com and Anything PC.

"We believe shoppers come to the Web to find the best values conveniently. By including more quality merchants in our search service, we simply help shoppers find better deals," said Josh Goldman, president and CEO of mySimon. "We don't have any restrictive deals in place that limit who we can and can't search on the Internet."

The company said that key to mySimon's growth is its VLA (Virtual Learning Agent) technology, which enables rapid scaling. Applied behind the scenes, VLA "enables mySimon's shopping 'bot' to shop new Web merchants in a matter of minutes."
