Frequently Asked Questions

Is the price shown on PriceBaba the lowest price?

The price advised by PriceBaba is the estimated street price. And it may not always be the lowest price. What that means is that you may bargain for that price when buying from a local retailer in the real world. Our focus is not to push deals from merchants offering the lowest price, rather we believe in giving our users the most relevant prices in their city. In the process of doing that, more often than not, we should be able to help you shop at the lowest price in you locality and at the same time ensure that you have a delightful experience shopping based on our guidance.

Do retailers influence the best price shown on the site?

One of the unique things about PriceBaba is the fact that retailers do not control our price recommendations. We see our best price guidance akin to Google's search results. No amount of money or influence can affect the same. We do not merely source rates from different retailers or crawl dozen websites to throw the lowest price at you. We use our insights to give you the current Market Operating Price (MOP).
