Buscapé

Absolute leader in price comparison, present in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia and 16 other countries in Latin America, Buscapé compares prices of more than 7,000,000 products sold by 60,000 stores. It is also responsible for the Shopping section of more than 100 portals, including Microsoft MSN, Abril, Globo and R7.com.

Pioneer in the market for product comparisons, shopping and prices, Buscapé was born in 1999 as a necessity. When was investigating the price of a printer on the Internet, one of the site’s founders felt that there was, in the middle on-line, a way to compare prices of products in one place, it was necessary then go to each store and check best deals. Then the university Romero Rodrigues, Rodrigo Borges, Mario Letelier and Ronaldo Takahashi detected the new market opportunity and launched the price comparison Buscapé, which is currently market leader in Latin America.
