DailyCred (formerly Shopobot) helps users purchase expensive items like DSLR cameras, cycling equipment, or baby gear.
DailyCred discovers experts in the user's social graph to provide advice from friends and trusted sources. DailyCred's price index crawler monitors prices across many stores and tells users the best time to buy an item.
This technology is also used by a growing network of review sites to replace low performing price widgets. The CTR on DailyCred's widget yields over 5 times the industry standard.
DailyCred was part of AngelPad #2 in 2011.
