B-Kam.com, Egypt’s First PriceGrabber Website Launched

25 Mar, 2012

B-Kam.com has just launched; a search engine that brings all Egyptian shopping websites in one place to let shoppers search, compare prices and get the best deals, all from one place.

The site is first price-comparison shopping website in Egypt but not the first in the Arab world as there is Menwayn from Jordan.

On B-kam Shoppers search directly for any product and get results from all the shopping websites instantly. Price comparison of different sellers is so much easier.

Bkam? presents full information about each shopping website in terms of guarantees, delivery, terms of payment, and providing invoices.

However one note About Bkam is that it does not offer a compact view of the different sites that offer the product. You need to click on each one of the vendors site to search for info. It would be much better if it can provide one list showing the item price tag according to the shopping site that sells it.

Statistics show that almost 40% of internet users in the MENA region shop for their stuff online, an excellent opportunity for the online businesses to expand and dominate. With such an excellent potential, Mahmoud Abdel-Fattah, founder of Bkam?, found it necessary to provide a more efficient platform for the online businesses to capture more shoppers. Although the idea is so simple, the development wasn’t all that simple at all. Mahmoud says he owes a lot to eSpace Technologies for acting as a technical advisor throughout the development of B-Kam.com.
Bkam? also released their mobile version in parallel with the full one to allow offline shoppers to search for the best deals on-the-go. In a matter of days, a mobile application will be available to download from both the Apple Store and Android Market.
Sherif Nassar, founder and CEO of Nefsak.com says, “It is a great pleasure to see such a professional service like B-Kam in Egypt. It is not just a price comparison, but a tool for the customers to evaluate the value that they will get from their online shopping experience in just one step. The level of fairness and integrity of the team managing B-Kam, makes us at nefsak.com happy to cooperate with them.”

    It’s great to see these sort of services spread across the world.

    But we’d like to point out that in no way is the Bkam website affiliated with, connected to, or otherwise related to PriceGrabber.com. We just wanted to point this out because the title of this story can make lead to misunderstandings.

    I agree with the other commenter. It is exciting to see technology and mobile services become available to more and more people. I think the more technology that is adapted to serve different types of people the more we can learn from each other’s adaptions. Different societies and cultures tend to have different priorities and may think of applications that another culture may have overlooked. All in all I think the spreading of technological applications will result in better and better applications.

    Egprices.com is the first comparison shopping website for Egypt. Research the topic before publishing wrong information. Good luck for bkam and shame on Arabcrunch for false information.
