Zwoop provides unrestricted, unbiased, unbeatable access to the whole world of e-commerce.
Zwoop analyses hundreds of thousands of retail websites across the globe, using AI and a distributed network of crawlers, to recognise products even when they're described in different ways by different retailers. Zwoop identifies the best deals available, anywhere online.
Zwoop’s find engine is far more precise than a search engine, and operates without the biased influence of advertising, SEO or affiliate deals. It only shows the products that match the shopper’s exact specifications, including size, style, delivery options, and are in stock.
Zwoop automates the registration and checkout process, with fast, one-click check-out from any retailer. Payment can be made using debit or credit, ZWP tokens, or any major crypto currency, opening up the crypto economy to mainstream retail.
The Zwoop blockchain enables consumers to control their data, decide how it’s used, and receive rewards if they choose to share it.
