It enables the vendor to attach the buyers’ interest to their website, and the customers to receive the dynamic updates on the goods they want to buy. When the customer will get a pop-up alert that the TV set he likes to purchase is available at the online shop he/she saw previously with a 15% discount, one will certainly use this possibility and get it.
