|Launch Date||January 1, 1998|
ResellerRatings is a place to compare prices, store ratings and reviews of online stores, deals and bargains.
Reseller Ratings was developed and launched by Scott Wainner while he was in high school. He later sold ResellerRatings to EarthWeb, then re-purchased it from Internet.com at a fraction of its cost since the site wasn’t successful under the new leadership.
In August 2012, ResellerRatings was acquired by Answers.com.
