What can you use the app for?

Worth Monkey gives online shoppers a better way to make a purchase and save money. The site is designed for consumers who are in the market to make a purchase. The user can enter the item details or related keywords and Worth Monkey searches for all instances of that item on the internet, including sites like Ebay and Amazon. It then takes the current prices and finds a high, low and average. Along with providing a price range for the user, Worth Monkey also shows the user where they can buy the item for the highest average price and lower. That way, the user knows all their options can get the best deal from a reputable online seller.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Worth Monkey was founded in July of 2010. Based out of San Luis Obispo, California, Worth Monkey has labeled itself the Blue Book for used electronics and more. The creators came up with the concept behind Worth Monkey after many online transactions. Each time they would buy online, they would turn to knowledgeable friends and family members to find out how much they felt the product was worth. The creators realized that no one can be an expert in every product category. Worth Monkey is intended to give users a single resource to find out the value of an item before they buy it without the need to consult someone else.

What are the differences to other apps?

Worth Monkey is not a site that is selling anything. It is intended to give users a neutral resource to find information and pricing details on the products they want to buy. The site helps users find which sellers are offering the best price as well. Worth Monkey can help users save a great deal of money on their online purchases just by taking a few minutes to search before they buy.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Worth Monkey website gives users exactly what they want as soon as they arrive. There are no annoying banner ads or clutter to get in the way. The user is introduced to the product search as soon as they arrive on the homepage. The search bar is large and takes center stage. Additional links are also present, but these are primarily basic navigation tools that explain how Worth Monkey operates, how to register and how to leave feedback for the site’s creators.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can search for products without a Worth Monkey account. That being said, there is a registration option. Users can click the white “Register” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. This takes the user to the short registration form which is very straight forward and only asks for the basics. The users are asked to enter a username, password and email address. After entering a verification code (confirming the user is in fact human), the information can be submitted using the white “Register” button at the bottom of the form.

What does it cost to use the application?

Anyone can use Worth Monkey without an account. There are no subscription fees or other fees for using Worth Monkey. The site does not currently list a premium paid account option, either. Anyone can access all Worth Monkey features just by taking a few minutes to sign up.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Worth Monkey is ideal for anyone who frequently buys online. The site is very easy to use so a novice user will have no trouble searching for items and comparing prices. The free price tag is another good reason to use Worth Monkey. Users can search as often as they like. Even the occasional online shopper can benefit from stopping by Worth Monkey to search for their next purchase before spending any money.
