Google Shopping rolled out a series of new tools Thursday to help users determine if they’ve really found a “good” deal.
Buyers can now find pricing information on the tech giant’s retail platform that will let them know if the bids for an item are high, low, or typical, compared to other prices on the Web and in nearby stores.
